5.0 out of 5 stars Mad Dog "I'll kill anybody who calls me that" May 25, 2012
I saw this movie recently on TCM and it was really good. Mad dog Vincent Coll was played brilliantly by Chandler as he really seemed insane. Telly Savalis plays a Detective who is after his gang and Jerry Orbach from none other than Dirty Dancing in it as one of Coll's friends. All in all the acting was superb and the story was great although I'm not sure how true to life it was as I have not researched the life of Mad Dog. Anyone who like gangster noir films will like this movie to watch and for their collection.

If you think about it, in any gangster movie you see, the gangster has some redeeming quality. Al Capone was a bon vivant, cracking jokes and opening champagne; John Dillinger wrote jokey letters of appreciation to Henry Ford for making swift cars; Scarface rebelled at the prospect of blowing up a mother and her kids; Don Vito Corleone was a wise and benign paterfamilias who offered thoughtful bromides like, "Women and children can afford to be careless, but not a man."

Then there's Vincent Coll, the "Mad Dog," disturbingly recreated by John Davis Chandler in his screen debut. An abused child grown into a monster, he is pure, unadulterated evil. He carries a tommy gun under his trench coat like an Englishman carries an umbrella. He laughingly mows down four dock drudges unloading Canadian whisky, gurgling in afterglow, "You was in the way!" He smashes a pretty, sensitive girl's violin then rapes her. Most despicably, he recklessly sprays bullets at some rival gangsters and kills a couple of little kids. This last episode was what earned the real Vincent Coll the epithet "Mad Dog."

"Johnny" Chandler was the perfect choice to enact Coll. Fair-haired, smirking, with half-closed eyelids, he sneers, whines, rages, and spits out hard-boiled lines like, "Here we are just pickin' pimples and lookin' dumb!" Coll manages to make up a gang of four, inexplicably including Joe, an essentially nice guy (Jerry Orbach). Coll's racket is victimizing the Dutch Schultz gang by whisky hijacking and kidnapping. Detective Telly Savalas notes Coll's underworld rise and steadily plots his fall. The final judgement for Mad Dog sticks close to the facts of the 23-year-old psychopath's undoing. Vincent sums up his life: "Hate! I hate!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Mad Dog Coll June 8, 2014

This is probably one of the most under rated gangster films of all time, I had always seen it on TV growing up with commercials. It is truly awesome that after several decades it finally surfaced in a DVD format. The cast and script is one of the best of all time, John Chandler hold's his own along with film gangster icons like Bogart and Cagney! not to mention Telly Savalas and Jerry Orbach are you kidding me! If you love classic gangster movies this one should not be missing from your DVD collection!
