The reason I bought this movie was because I'm a Stella Stevens fan. The movie itself was okay,why it may not be for everyone.I think for those who might like Stella Stevens and David Jensen. I think you might enjoy seeing these two stars together on Blu-ray.
One more thing Stella Stevens acting in this movie was a nice surprise for me as well, Why because I'm more use to seeing her in more comedy roles or light acting or even the sexy kitten type roles.
Stella in this movie was intense and a lot more dramatic in the role and I liked her performance in the movie.

Stuck in an unhappy marriage to a shrewish, boozed up nymphomaniac (Stella Stevens), a housing developer (Jeffrey Hunter) receives a visit from an old Korean war buddy (David Janssen) who lures him into helping rob a South American dictator of three million dollars. But they're both amateurs, dangerously out of their element and, of course, everything goes horribly wrong. Directed by the actor Edmond O'Brien (THE BAREFOOT CONTESSA), this should be better than it is. It has all the elements of a classic film noir but O'Brien can't seem to combine all the ingredients into a satisfying whole. It has an almost surreal quality to it like Hunter's neighborhood which seems populated entirely of alcoholic wife swappers. The film has a killer twist Hitchcockian ending just waiting to happen that I saw coming but it doesn't!!! To be fair, some of the problems may be inherent in the source material by John D. MacDonald (CAPE FEAR) but I haven't read the novel it's based on, TAINT OF THE TIGER. It doesn't help that potentially complex characters are played by such uninteresting actors as Hunter (who's weaker than usual) and Janssen which leaves Stevens' slut to take center stage. The film is nicely shot in wide screen B&W by Loyal Griggs (SHANE). With Elaine Devry, Bob Crane, Virginia Gregg, Frank Albertson, Perry Lopez and Dorothy Green.

The Olive DVD is a crisp anamorphic wide screen (2.35) transfer.

Actor Edmond O'Brien takes a respectable directorial turn with this soapy but vicious heist flick from Paramount, 1961. While the plot is a little too convoluted for its own good (lots of moving parts detract from the film's narrative and dramatic impact in such a tight running time), and there is no shortage of hammy lines (compliments of prolific TV writer Ed Waters) delivered with Sophoclean seriousness by leads Hunter and Janssen, this post-noir crime thriller/domestic melodrama is nonetheless entertaining (martini gun, anyone?). A twentysomething Stella Stevens is notable as Hunter's cruel wife, who eventually meets her just-- though rather unintentionally comical-- fate. 3-plus stars.

I don't know which is worse, the script or the direction. But when you toss in the performances you have something that makes THE OSCAR look like GONE WITH THE WIND. If you're in the right frame of mind it might hit you like it hit me. It took me about 40 minutes but once I started laughing I couldn't stop.
