There was a time when Brian Keith was the "hot young leading man" of hollywood. In his finest dramatic performance, Keith portrays a policeman who has sacrificed his principles. Ginger Rogers is equally great as a gangster's moll gone straight. Edward G. Robinson, in a change of pace, is a dedicated crime fighter. This film, made on a "B" budget proved to be the sleeper of the year. The violence is in the mind of the viewer and the performances uniformly excellent. This is a not-to-be-missed movie!

4.0 out of 5 stars Witty dialog, interesting performances. July 14, 2005
Format:VHS Tape
Tight Spot is a crime suspense movie with a bit of a comedy-drama feel from Ginger Rogers' crackly performance as a streetwise and otherwise wise convict. The situation: Prosecutor Edward G. Robinson has convict Rogers moved from prison to protective custody in a hotel room, guarded by cop Brian Keith, to persuade her to testify against mobster Lorne Greene. Rogers delivers witty dialogue by the truck load in spite of the dangerous situation, and finds a new dance partner in Brian Keith. The witty banter between cop & con as they fall head over heels for each other is entertaining, but unfortunately that detracts a bit from the suspense. Meantime the gangsters bungle their first attempt on her life, killing a police woman in the guard detail. I recommend the movie more for the witty dialogue than for the suspense, and even more than that for the trivia value if you're a film buff - it has both Keith and Greene in some of their earliest major roles, and Rogers and Robinson deliver outstanding performances.

5.0 out of 5 stars B movie with academy award acting. April 25, 2008
Format:VHS Tape
"Tight Spot" was a gem. Unexpected, to me, after the early part of the movie seemed to have an inevitable ending. It didn't turn out that way.

Rogers was perfect for the plot, which was perfect for Rogers. Her actual age, 45, was perfect for the age of a society reject who was dragged from prison for one purpose: testify against a murderous criminal. The plot twists weren't brilliant, perhaps, but I did enjoy them, as well as the acting of all the key players.

From the acting standpoint, I think Ginger was fabulous. I would give her a ten, on all counts.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tight Spot May 10, 2013
By Judy D
Format:VHS Tape|Verified Purchase
It was a different type movie for Ginger but good and being a fan I loved it. She is always great in every part she always makes a movie good no matter what the story line. It reminds me somewhat of Roxie Hart.. Ginger was great and so under appreciated sometimes for her unbelievable versatility.

This movie had it all. Good writing, good acting and a surprise ending. The title should have been Dead Pigeon, however.

1.0 out of 5 stars Better Undestanding of Region 2 June 23, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
"It was not made clear to me what it meant by Region 2. I was under the impression from unique place-usa that this DVD would play in America. I have to send the DVD set back to the company . They will not give me a return slip to send it back to them. I asked them to send me a return label and I haven't heard from them since. I would not recommend purchasing anything from them. I can not play and I really wanted to see those old movies"

1.0 out of 5 stars Incompatible! November 23, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This DVD was formatted for the European version -- which is totally incompatible with USA DVD players! I didn't realize this until after I received the DVD and my player couldn't read it. It is in small print (in blue) at the end of the blurb on the website, so I didn't notice it until I was investigating why the DVD wouldn't work. It was a huge disappointment! For some reason the DVD is not available for USA version. Had to return it.
