I saw this on Eddie Mulllers top 25 film noir list.  I'm gonna try and screen this and see if it will become a part of my collection.

I finally saw this. I loved it all the way up till the end.  Everything about this film was fantastic.  Ed Begley and Harry Belafonte were superb in this.  Robert Ryan was great also, but he was very slimy, lol.  He was worst in " Bad Day at Black Rock ", but he wasn't too far off here. I loved the cinematography, the music, the plot, the directing, everything was first rate.  This film should be better known. Thanx to Cigarjoe for posting this.  My only quibble, and its the SAME quibble with a lot of the noirs i have seen, is the ending.  I didn't care for the ending.  The ending WAS setting up to be great, but the director just threw it completely away.  Still, i give this a solid 8 out of 10.  This was a fantastic movie.

Hollywood and independents were all still under the (even though it was weakening) Motion Picture Production Code. If you wanted distribution in theaters, you needed their seal. Your only other option would be to take your film on the road, rent halls, sets up tents, label it "educational" and show yourself. You could almost stop these films a minute or two before they actually end and think up your own ending. ;-)

Its obvious the code was still in effect.  Its still a great movie though.  Dave's BIG mistake was including Earle in on the heist, ESPECIALLY after he saw that Earle was gonna bring his issues with him.  It was doomed from the start because of that.  When Johnny asked for the keys to the car and Earle ignored him, THAT was THAT.  He sealed their failure.  Ed Begley was superb in this.  I couldn't remember where i saw him so I looked it up and yes, it was in Hangem High with Clint Eastwood.  He is a great actor.

I can't get over how good this film is. I see why Eddie Muller has it in his top 25.  Great post you made here. :)

Begley is in quite a few Noirs, On Dangerous Ground, The Street with No Name, Backfire, to name a few, and he's great in 12 Angry Men.

I have seen The Street with No Name. I can't remember what role he played. Its been a while.  I got that on my to purchase list because I remembering it being pretty good.  I'm gonna check out On Dangerous Ground and I already have 12 angry men on my watchlist.  On Dangerous Ground looks like its gonna be good.  Thanx...
