Editorial Reviews

Hollywood star Edmond O'Brien (D.O.A.) directs his second and final film - a widescreen heist thriller shot in glorious black-and-white by legendary cinematographer, Loyal Griggs (Shane). During the Korean War, Matt (Jeffrey Hunter) saves Vince's life and in return, Vince (David Janssen) promises to one day pay him back with half his earnings. Years later, Vince suddenly appears for a reunion and talks Matt into a questionable venture involving a plot to hijack nearly $4 million from the mob, which they would split fifty-fifty. Stella Stevens (Too Late Blues) co-stars as Matt's alcoholic and promiscuous wife.

Stuck in an unhappy marriage to a shrewish, boozed up nymphomaniac (Stella Stevens), a housing developer (Jeffrey Hunter) receives a visit from an old Korean war buddy (David Janssen) who lures him into helping rob a South American dictator of three million dollars. But they're both amateurs, dangerously out of their element and, of course, everything goes horribly wrong. Directed by the actor Edmond O'Brien (THE BAREFOOT CONTESSA), this should be better than it is. It has all the elements of a classic film noir but O'Brien can't seem to combine all the ingredients into a satisfying whole. It has an almost surreal quality to it like Hunter's neighborhood which seems populated entirely of alcoholic wife swappers. The film has a killer twist Hitchcockian ending just waiting to happen that I saw coming but it doesn't!!! To be fair, some of the problems may be inherent in the source material by John D. MacDonald (CAPE FEAR) but I haven't read the novel it's based on, TAINT OF THE TIGER. It doesn't help that potentially complex characters are played by such uninteresting actors as Hunter (who's weaker than usual) and Janssen which leaves Stevens' slut to take center stage. The film is nicely shot in wide screen B&W by Loyal Griggs (SHANE). With Elaine Devry, Bob Crane, Virginia Gregg, Frank Albertson, Perry Lopez and Dorothy Green.

The Olive DVD is a crisp anamorphic wide screen (2.35) transfer.

3.0 out of 5 stars Tennessee Williams meets Robert Aldrich? August 16, 2012
By Brian
Actor Edmond O'Brien takes a respectable directorial turn with this soapy but vicious heist flick from Paramount, 1961. While the plot is a little too convoluted for its own good (lots of moving parts detract from the film's narrative and dramatic impact in such a tight running time), and there is no shortage of hammy lines (compliments of prolific TV writer Ed Waters) delivered with Sophoclean seriousness by leads Hunter and Janssen, this post-noir crime thriller/domestic melodrama is nonetheless entertaining (martini gun, anyone?). A twentysomething Stella Stevens is notable as Hunter's cruel wife, who eventually meets her just-- though rather unintentionally comical-- fate. 3-plus stars.
