Directed by Roger Corman
USA 1967

 

  This film has some uniqueness for instilling such vivid memories, albeit with the use of one powerfully violent scene. Corman's re-creation of the famous Chicago gang massacre of the 20s has a strong cast that seems to go on and on, even in bit parts - Jason Robards, George Segal, Ralph Meeker, Jean Hale, Frank Silvera, Bruce Dern John Agar, Harold Stone, and even Jack Nicholson (better look quick). Judged solely as cinema it is only slightly above average but as a gangster drama it is one of the more eviscerating ever made. Definitely worth seeing.

Comments:

Another strong single-layered anamorphic, progressive DVD image from Fox. Frankly, I don't have any complaints - it's possible that I see some moiring but it is slight if it is there at all. Colors and contrast look very above-average. Audio is quite strong and thee are optional subtitles. A bare bones digital representation of the film with only a trailer as an extra. The price suits both the film and the DVD. Worth a spin or two.
