Maybe Sunset Boulevard also not, but I only said a a bit, and I thought firstly about Lost Weekend and Ace in the Hole. Sunset Boulevard is one of his best films. 8/10

Ok, preachy is maybe the wrong term.

Still, they have this Hollywood-problem-film attitude, but Wilder's cynicism helps to keep them alive. And it is far away from the way Stanley Kramer deals with the beeeg problems of our world.

Ace in the Hole is too long ago too talk about any details, but the sentimental ending is typical for these films.

For whatever reason, I have never watched this before, but here I have to agree almost word to word with @titoli and @drinkanddestroy.

1) McQueen unfit for the role.

2) Beautiful actresses.

3) Great supporting cast with great performances (Keith being the best IMHO).

4) So-so action. Varying from scene to scene.

5) Devoid of any reason at all, and I mean ANY.

6) Visually attractive locations and sets.



All in all: entertaining with a score of approx. 7/10

No matter how cleverly you sneak up on a mirror, the reflection always looks you straight in the eye.

Brian Keith is strong (as always) but they missed to bring him back at the end...

They did bring him back in a brief sequence, but not enough unfortunately.
