  • A treasure trove of treachery

    • Jeff Boston
    • 4/8/18

    All the bad guys betray each other in this smart, solidly seventies suspense film. First, there's an invasion, then there's snatching, then there bodies falling due to the killers. Only two mules remain - no more sister (Que sera, sera). The beguiling, dirtier, hairier one need never be a shootist in his devise to escape from New Mexico with the mob's "gambling money, whore money, dope money." I loved the music toward the end that sounded so much like the score from the later "Halloween" flick with Jamie Lee Curtis. I loved the whole film. It's a good follow up to "Dirty Harry" by Don Siegel.

  • Crime time

    Riveting crime drama, with just the right amount of twists and turns. For younger viewers who may only know Walter Matthau from his comedy team-ups with Jack Lemmon or for the musical Hello Dolly, this film is something of a revelation. Mr. Matthau actually began his film career playing gangsters and lawyers, and crooks. Then slowly morphed into a grouchy but lovable comedian of high renown. Here he gets to play a tough, experienced pilot and bank robber who suddenly finds himself in a big mob related crisis.All the performers are good. Fine direction by Don Siegel. Some viewer would have liked this film to be all dark shadows and odd angles like a good old film noir. But I like its Southwest feel. Well worth watching. And a chance to see the finely talented actor Walter Matthau playing a likeable but unrepentant crook.

  • the passion of the matthau.

    walter Matthau paid for the movie sins of Barbara the egomaniac in hello dolly and jackass friend phoebe in his last film. it will not be such a chore to try and watch this inverted.. slightly dali/Picasso construct crime story. do this in memory of a being who was a bit of a sport.

  • What a great movie!

    Thank you TCM, for the introduction to this movie. I knew nothing about this movie and wham, it really grabbed me. Entertaining and interesting from start to finish, with an especially nasty bunch dealing with each other. I have to say it's one of the best I've ever seen.
