This movie is good, not great, was not quite as terrific as I had remembered (saw it on TV in 1973 or 1974), and was very much like an ABC "Movie of the Week" from that time-- 1973. Though I think it was theater-released first. It's tame, as to excitement or action, compared to a film today, but had an early 1970s charm that I liked very much, with far better acting than you see now. And fine character development through good dialog. I prefer 1970s movies, to generalize, over those of any other decade.
All four of the lead actors are quite appealing, it's interesting, also set in several different, pretty locations in the US and Canada, and I'm very glad I bought this. One complaint: the ending is sort of abrupt. Also uninteresting. And leaving the viewer wanting more, not because the ending was great, but because it was lacking. It came up quickly out of nowhere and leaves one little-stimulated to think further about the film.
It's a wonderful film with astounding acting all round. I won't write about the plot, but just to say James Coburn and Trish Van Devere are really stunning in this. I love the way Coburn says 'delicious' when he's presented with good-time girl Francine, by his friend Casey. Van Devere didn't appear in that many films, but what she did do was for me, Oscar/Emmy worthy. Check her out in the Columbo episode - Make me a perfect murder, or The Changeling (1980).
Lalo Schifrin's memorable score captures the various moods of the film perfectly. It's one of the greatest films scores ever written.
One of my all time favourites. (Would have been nice to have bluray!!)
The picture quality was very good, clean and sharp, but not so the sound. The dialogue, although clear, sounded brittle, and the canned background music bad, interfering with the dialogue and effects. Overall I enjoyed the movie which makes you think what can happen to your wallet if you are not careful.
