I have no problem with Claudia's voice but I wonder if she was the right actress for the part of a whore?  I reckon someone like Anna Magnani or Irene Papas would have given the character the fire and intensity you would expect of a woman whose hopes and dreams had been destroyed; and who was now herself in mortal danger.  I've always felt that Claudia and Fonda (who was no villain) were weak links in this film, but fortunately there was the sheer presence of Bronson, Robards and Ferzetti.

  Really? :o  I've talked to people who didn't like the movie, hated it, liked it, loved it, but no one ever said Fonda as Frank was not a good villain.  That blows me away that you think he wasn't a good choice.  Any reason why you feel that way?
