When i saw who headlined this tight little caper film , i kept thinking , Rory Calhoun ? Rory Calhoun ? Well after i'd settled into the film , beyond the mid point to be sure , it hit me! "It Takes All Kinds Of Critters To Make Farmer Vincent's Fritters" . HOTEL HELL . I'd never seen Mr. Calhoun so young before (to my knowledge) . Good looking young guy he was too . I've always been a fan of James Gregory and got a kick out of watching him do his thing . I can't summon the name of Uncle "gin mill" , the explosives expert ? No matter . I think that gentleman made a pretty fine living playing the lush on the big and small screen , if memory serves ? The film has a few unintended laughs but was obviously shot on a tight budget in about nine days or so . The other characters are interesting too . The homicidal , blond fitness freak . The bad girl spoiling to go good . The kind and inviting community our heist folk insinuate themselves into . The vault cracker who settles for fifteen grand rather than listening to the value of 10 percent . The film's all B-movie gold . Brisk , involving and fun . You can stream it for free (thanks to Netflix) and see if you'd enjoy a copy . Flawed ? Sure . Fun ? Oh yeah!!

I thought it among the best film noir pictures I have seen. The first 10 minutes or so is a little cheesy but after that it's great. Great character development and excellent casting...the psychos should have gotten an Academy Award. You think you got it figured or at least I did but I wrong.

Sure a guy, a guy like Frank, who came up the hard way, a coal-miner father taken by the dust, and a bereft mother left to raise six kids helter-skelter with no dough, had dreams, big dreams of that one big score that would settle accounts, settle accounts with society, and settle accounts with that nagging empty feeling of always being short of dough. Frank though did not see those dreams coming true from working nine to five and saving his pennies, or maybe making some big invention to wow a candid world or hitting a big score on the horses over at Santa Anita (truth to tell he was on something of a losing streak just then). No, our Frank, a good- looking young guy with plenty of black hair and blue eyes, was nothing but a hustler, a Bunco guy, you know a con artist, a flimflam man and so with larceny in his heart he kept trying to figure out the road to that big score.

And Frank found it, found it like finding gold on the ground in his sunny California homeland ; a payroll heist, a million dollar heist of the dough for servicemen, for Marines, at Camp Pendleton, down by Oceanside held over the weekend before payday at a local bank nearby for safe keeping. The problem though was that Frank was tapped out, broke, was moreover way outside his league on pulling this one together, way outside his penny ante games, small time grift stuff. And he needed confederates, a few specialists, yeggs, wheelmen, heavy duty rough stuff guys to cope to this caper.

So naturally Frank turned to his old comrade- in- arms in the Bunco rackets the semi-retired Mister Flood (everybody in the rackets, even Frank, called him that as a sign of respect for his prowess as a con artist living in luxury and the promoter of few legendary scams) to promote this one.
