    Only Leslie Caron could jump out of a speeding cab doing about 70 MPH & not cause herself injury or even raise a cloud of dust on the roadside where she landed, barely knocking her wide brimmed hat off. As for the love scene coming up-I have my barfbag ready because -are you serious??? YUCK. Chandler is about as attractive as a catfish. And Leslie looks beautiful...stunning in fact. Which make this even more disgusting -seeing her manhandled by a catfish. I wonder how the the devil all of the stars & character actors got lured into doing this bomb, anyway? "Zip your fly-we've got business!" Who on EARTH wrote THAT line? I only caught a glimpse of Gloria -she had the wisdom to keep her part as brief as possible I suppose. This movie is SO bad that even Mystery Science Theater couldn't do anything with it. Signing off now-I have to recover from this one.

  • this is bad, and that ain't good

    Thank goodness for Leslie Caron, the other on-location scenery, Leslie Caron, the trains and old cars, and Leslie Caron. Everything else stinks, but could we have another showing in case I missed something?

  • Something is terribly wrong here

    As someone who particularly likes both Warren Oats and tacky film noir, imagine my chagrin when confronted with this unbelievable train wreck. Convoluted plots are one thing, but this one can't even be called beyond absurd, because to do so, one would have to have some understanding of what the film makers were actually attempting.It starts interestingly enough; a down and out sleuth actually named Chandler (yes, the screenwriters make a joke about that) finds himself trying to protect a lovely young woman from the vile clutches of evil men out to do something or other by putting some inane politician in office through nefarious means and making poor Chandler the fall guy. In what may rank as the most ghastly love scene ever filmed, Chandler woos the woman and attempts to whisk her away. It all ends (if you can call it that) with a ridiculous shoot out on the beach. Personally, I'm convinced there's a missing reel somewhere and TCM has the misfortune of airing a film with holes in the plot the size of 38's.If you actually like being able to say you saw an incredibly bad film, see Chandler. You'll love hating it.
