Bad Cop Noir! I've seen it twice on the big screen and I'd be happy to own it on DVD (if it ever comes out). Van Hefflin makes a wonderfully lovable psycho.

dave jenkins: The DVD is here! http://www.amazon.com/Prowler-Van-Heflin/dp/B004C2523M/ref=pd_rhf_p_t_4

Fabulous extras! Talking head doc, an interview with a gushing Bernard Tavernier, a very interesting doc on noir film restorations (including some hints about titles now in the pipeline).  I watched the film last night with the Eddie Muller commentary turned on. That's entertainment!

Do you think he is right that the movie is about "one woman's unstoppable quest to have a baby"?

Thank you again, D & D, for the upload. Much appreciated.  O0
I have the DVD too, haven't seen it in about 2 years though. I'll have to rewatch before I write something about it. The DVD has a commentary by Muller as an extra.
