2.0 out of 5 stars What the deuce? × 4 October 16, 2009
Format:DVD
First a word about 'gray market' DVDs--
Often, transfers are not of the highest quality. The movies themselves are unrestored and rarely pristine (but still watchable), extras are non-existent and inclusion of artwork or liner notes varies by manufacturer.

THE FOUR DEUCES is the last film story from Don Martin, scripter of many forgettable 'B' pictures. This one's no different than his others, quality-wise.

Imaginative opening credits that feature comic book panels dissolving to live action are the highlight of this color-boosted Prohibition Era bomb. Jack Palance was by 1975 well into the tough guy parody phase of his career. When not lampooning himself Jack does what he can with a weak script. Co-star Carol Lynley looks good but seems to phone-in her performance from Jersey.

A deadly street feud between two rival gangs, one headed by Palance and his four capos (the deuces), plus tit-for-tat attacks on their competing speakeasys are main elements here. There's also more than a half-dozen neo-20s vocals to slow things down. Note that Jack's rotund crime boss rival has an equally weight-challenged 'songbird' at his club while Palance's girl singer is svelte in her bobbed hair and shimmy skirt. Frankly, I thought the big gal the better vocalist.

Saloon bust-ups and night time tommy gun raids get quickly monotonous. The largest of these bullet-riddled assaults (and the last of them) is spoiled by intentional camera undercranking that turns violence into unamusing cartoon movement.

Ultimately, "Four Deuces" is a waste of time. It's ONLY for Jack Palance fans with a high tolerance for cinematic mediocrities.

5.0 out of 5 stars Comedy! October 6, 2004
By Gandalf
Format:DVD
Nice to see this old classic for sale on dvd! New remaster is recommended. A genuine action comedy about the the 1930s nightclub/mob life during prohibition.
