What are people saying?

  • GJP's rating of the film World for Ransom

    Not a great film. Clunky plot, clunky characters and clunky acting. Worth watching only for some minor auteurist touches. I'm perplexed that this was made around 1954 when Aldrich also made Vera Cruz and Apache. Those two films are vastly superior to this one... Does anybody know why Aldrich wasn't credited for directing?
