Interesting bonus material contains two short b&w newsreel items, one about Mansfield's visit to Budapest with then husband Micky Hargitay - apparently made by a Hungarian crew for Hungarian moviegoers (the visit was made en route to the set of Dog eat Dog in Yugoslavia). The second is a very short announcment of Mansfield's untimely death with stock footage showing her with the British Queen's sister, Princess Margaret (of all people). Echoes from the past ...
The violence and nihilism of film noir crash head on into an over-the-top beyond-ludicrous plot that piles one jaw-dropping absurdity atop another.
Sadistic scumbags laugh gleefully as they murder and torture.
The pneumatic Jayne Mansfield runs amok as an utterly immoral nymphomaniac tramp, in a reducto-ad-absurdum blonde bombshell performance that calls to mind John Water's great star Divine.
Stare in disbelief as Jayne rolls around in a negligee on a bed full of thousand dollar bills, gets a nasty black eye in a catfight, complains about her dirty underwear, and constantly makes lurid and absurd cracks.
There's a whole bunch of other oddball and depraved characters, too, most of whom are constantly trying to kill each other.
The dialogue is completely deranged, sometimes stunningly so.
The film is often visually striking, with very attractive black and white photography. A great stinking piece of pure gutter trash, with some stand-out moments and lotsa laughs. Nice clean clear print, too!
Dog Eat Dog! turns out to be a great little, "cheezy" movie with campy acting and a storyline that's way "over the top".
This is a small budget film shot in Europe with a lot of twists and turns in the plot. I am especially impressed with the crisp, stunning black & white cinematography. Jayne Mansfield, Cameron Mitchell, and the rest of the cast are actually quite good in it. The story: a trio of thieves steal a million dollars in old US banknotes that are supposed to be sent back to America to be destroyed. I think that fans of Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez might like this movie. Dog Eat Dog! looks like it would have been a fun little Drive-In picture to see back on a warm summer night in the 1960's. The film has a stylish European look to it.
Jayne Mansfield heads a cast that includes Cameron Mitchell, Ivor Salter, Isa Miranda, Werner Peters, Aldo Camarida and Dody Heath in a fast-paced yarn about a $1 million cash heist and everyone's greed to possess it. As Jayne says, "I got a pash for the cash!"
Directed by Ray Nazarro (Asst. Director on 1936's REEFER MADNESS), Richard Cunha and Gustav Gavrin, and shot on location along the beautiful Adriatic and Mediterranean coastlines, and an island villa, DOG EAT DOG mixes intrigue and ripe performances in a way that maintains interest throughout. Often times the dubbed dialog is over the top - but that's to its credit - after all this is a CULT film, and we love cult films for their unabashed outrageousness. Mitchell's violently desperate search for the money is one of the film's highlights that has to be seen to be believed.
Darksky Films' DVD of DOG EAT DOG is of pristine quality; the lush, creamy black and white cinematography is a pleasure to indulge yourself in, as are the charms of Miss Mansfield - she's pretty hot in this. The film is formatted to its correct 1.85:1 aspect ratio and is letterboxed.
The extras include newsreel footage of Jayne Mansfield, a photo gallery and the theatrical trailer.
Jayne Mansfield and cult film aficionados will definitely want to pick this one up. Dog eat dog is right! Highly recommended.
