    "The Split" (MGM 1968) is one of the best crime dramas from the 60's. As the decade wore on, the American cinema was starting to reflect the attitudes of our society (i.e. the civil rights movement, racial tensions, the Vietnam war, rebellion by youth against authority) by showing on-screen violence in a way like never before, in films like "Bonnie and Clyde", "Bullitt", "In Cold Blood" and "The Split". Former pro football star Jim Brown stars as the mastermind of a robbery of the L.A. Coliseum during a football game. His gang includes Ernest Borgnine, Jack Klugman, Donald Sutherland (Brown's co-star from "The Dirty Dozen"), and Gene Hackman is good in one of his early roles as a crooked cop. I've seen "The Split" a few times and would like to see it again soon TCM. I would also like to see it on DVD, to add it to the other crime films in my library. Maybe it will be in one of the next Warner Archives Collection releases. I sure hope so.

    I REMEMBER SEEING "THE SPLIT" WHEN IT FIRST CAME OUT IN '68. THE PREVAILING CONCEPT AT THE TIME WAS "CRIME DOES NOT PAY", IN THIS MOVIE IT ALMOST DOES. INSTEAD THE MESSAGE BECOMES "YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR YOUR ACTIONS". THE WAY THE GANG MEMBERS ARE CHOSEN WAS COMICAL. THEY NEVER KNEW THEY WERE BEING TESTED UNTIL AFTER THE TEST. THE ACTION WAS GOOD FOR IT'S TIME. NO MAJOR SPECIAL EFFECTS OR CGI. ALL IN ALL I STILL REMEMBER IT AS A GOOD MOVIE WITH A KILLER TWIST AT THE END.
