Editorial Reviews

A number of otherwise insignificant small-town stories erupt into drama when a gang of hoodlums decides to rob the local bank. A father looking for pride in his son's eyes, a timid clerk who is a peeping tom by night, a man striving to rewin his wife's love, an Amish farmer faced with viciousness, and a proper older woman turned thief, all find themselves entangled with the bank robbers as a peaceful weekend turns violent. (NOTE: While we understand that most hardcore collectors of DVDs prefer all titles to be 16 x 9 anamorphically enhanced for widescreen televisions, in some instances this isn't possible when the studio has only non-anamorphic elements in the vault. It then becomes our decision to either not release the title, or to go with the 4 x 3 master available to us. As we at Twilight Time love films like "Violent Saturday," it is our feeling that to have it out in the only way we can, is better than to not have it at all. Fortunately, many of the titles we will be issuing in the series ++are++ anamorphically enhanced, so we ask your forgiveness and indulgence in advance, for those classic treasures left in the 4 x 3 format as a result of being prepared for laserdisc before being left in the cold when that mode of delivery was eclipsed by DVD. We are collectors, too--and appreciate your support. Thanks so much.)

Customer Reviews

Well written, wonderfuly acted; a true classic!
Allan G. Potts
Many of the characters here have their faults and no one is perfect, but it makes them that much more enjoyable to watch.
Skygazer
This is how movies should be made, without the present profound use of tech, vulgar language and fake acting.

This film is like if Mad Men had been filmed back in 1955 and instead of it being about advertising it was about a lovely little copper mining town with everyday people trying to do their best in life. Many of the characters here have their faults and no one is perfect, but it makes them that much more enjoyable to watch. The dialogue is crisp and top-notch and if you're not careful will leave you sucker punched with how good and funny it is. And with a couple of lines that should be classics. This is adult entertainment 50s style, which means everything is just beneath the surface and you don't need much to see how real and flawed these folks are...and good too. The all star ensemble cast is top notch, the direction smart the writing timeless and the look and feel of the time makes you long for an older more innocent America, ironically. Oh and if all that wasn't enough you have a bank robbery being planned. You will not be bored, whether lost classic Hollywood movies interest you or not.

This is a terrific bourgeois soaper from the golden days of Fox CinemaScope. There's enough main-street intrigue and American anxiety to fill a couple of pictures, and it's all performed with professional ease by a first-rate cast. Hugo Friedhofer contributes a notable music score.
The streaming version exhibits good quality, except for being a relatively worthless pan-and-scan version: the deluxe color is accurate, as is the original 4-track, stereo mix.
Twilight Time Video will be releasing this title on DVD in 2011, in the original CinemaScope aspect ratio (2:40 to 1), as part of their new Fox Classics collection available exclusively by Screen Archives.

A magnificent crime drama, full of action and sophistication, a great deal of the latter being comprised of a most devastating irony, and distinguished further by some of the greatest stars of both sexes of the 1950s, including so many of that decades' leading action stars.

This is a marvelous classic movie, rare appearance of Victor Mature with Lee Marvin. This is how movies should be made, without the present profound use of tech, vulgar language and fake acting. This is truly the way Americana movies assumed a recognized reputation worldwide. Highly recommended for all, the plot is entertaining, the cast well acted, the scenery is classic country and the film well cut.

aw this was a great movie, fine writing, made the story special and will be remembered for a long time to come.
The actors, were all really good, and to see these actors in their prime, when they were young and strong, was
an extra added bonus!
