But as reaganomics kicked in, a few nasty treasures snuck out, and this is one of them. Wings Hauser steals the show not just as Ramrod - the epitomy of psycho pimp bad-guy, but as singer of the opening theme song "City Of Slime". The talented yet inexplicably flat chested Season Hubley is our leading lady, a high priced call girl used as Ramrod bait. Uncomprimising and exciting, no film film nowadays would ever depict a PIMP-STICK (you'll have to watch to find out what that is).
Art S (de) wrote: Whenever I watch a Bresson film, I always feel that there is something I'm not quite grasping, that is just out of my reach. I think it may be a theological principle related to "grace" or "salvation" that I never learned, whereby characters who suffer tremendously, needlessly, and often not as a result of any of their own actions (e.g., Balthazar or Mouchette) attain some sort of spiritual transcendence (thanks perhaps to a benevolent Christian god). I'm not quite sure how these things work together but they appear consistently in Bresson's oeuvre. In this film, his later style of focusing the camera on the small details of hands at work on sometimes mundane tasks and on the often serious but blank faces of the non-actor protagonists is only beginning to crystalize (his next film, A Man Escaped, is a masterpiece). Still, there is an intensity that grows from the camera's singular preoccupation with Claude Laydu who plays a young priest taking over his first parish in a French country town full of hostility toward him. He keeps a diary in which he reports (in voiceover) the events that unfold as he attempts to resolve a family's spiritual and moral crisis. He is sick and his grasp on consciousness and possibly reality seems tenuous. We never know if he is making the right decisions and he does not seem to know himself. Nevertheless, he seems to achieve "grace" by persevering in his course despite suffering, both physical and in his duties.

She's really too nice of a girl for that sort of thing. I know she's not the best actress or anything, but I love her all the same. She has very alert eyes that make her look smart. Also, the detective character gave me the impression that what the film makers actually wanted was to have Orson Welles but they couldn't get him so they got this guy. He did a really nice job, though. I rooted for him for a long time because I find Victor Mature to be a tad sleazy.And what about that scene where Victor Mature and Betty Grable hide out at a porno? That was a porno, wasn't it? Or am I reading 40s-movie code wrong?And what about "Somewhere Over the Rainbow"? Why was that Victor Mature's theme song?Being slow and having a few weird things aside, there were ample red herrings, and the ending was both fulfilling and not lame. So overall, not too bad.Oh, one more thing: I'm pretty sure James Ellroy got 50% of his ideas for The Black Dahlia from this movie.
