When I saw "A Lovely Way to Die" was being released as part of the Universal Vault series I thought, `Alright! I always wanted to see this film!' Well, I didn't miss much.
It seemed like a good idea...great stars like Kirk Douglas and Eli Wallach as well as great eye candy in Sylvia Koscina. The story concept was a good idea: an ex-cop (Douglas) becomes the bodyguard for an heiress (Koscina) whose husband has been murdered after being approached by her lawyer (Wallach).
Not surprising for me I bought the video when it was available on a foreign label because I'd wanted to see it so badly. I found myself falling asleep in the middle. And being the diehard movie buff I am, I bought it in the U.S. version when it came out. (Thought I would give the film the benefit of the doubt and give it another look without the subtitles.)
I've watched the movie twice and both times it appears the action becomes muddled in the middle of the story-it had nothing to do with subtitles! The best part of the movie is appreciating Miss Koscina's many attributes.
