I respect this era of film making, be it an accident or not. This movie is quite standard for its genre, but the subtlty of its style, and ubiquitous inuendoes keep it interesting. My only wish is that the ending was more of a low-budget cresendo... it felt rather anti-climactic and didn't contrast well with Tony Rome's relaxed, cool-guy persona.
Superbe petit polar avec un rôle sur mesure pour un Sinatra grand cru. Une réalisation dynamique et solidement efficace, un metteur en scène méconnu dont quelques œuvres sont à redécouvrir sans hésitation... www.cinefiches.com
