In rural Westphalia, Franz Berger struggles to keep his inn open. On this day, a bluff, overbearing bully, Hermann Walzer, has booked the dining room for a wedding banquet for his son Mark. There's bad blood between Berger and Walzer, so when the first course, shrimp cocktail, is off, Hermann storms out with the wedding party vowing not to pay. Franz locks the loo door, taking prisoners of the bride and Hermann's wife while he also locks the estate's outer gates, leaving Hermann and the rest outside. Walzer, a pheasant hunter, lays siege; shotguns, rifles, grenades, a shovel, and other weapons leave no one safe. Will it take death to bring these men to their senses?

Matt S (ru) wrote: "The only time you talk nice to me is when you're loaded." "Let's get loaded!"This was Vincente Minnelli's 3rd film released in 1958 and arguably the best of his career. Here, in glorious Cinemascope, Sinatra and Dean Martin are paired together on screen for the first time. The melodrama is typically late '50's, as is the sexism. The film remains a deliberate examination of small-town hypocrisy wherein everybody is leading double lives and working hard to keep up appearances. The drama gives way to straight-up thriller in the final reel, which is a lavish visual feast where Minnelli's style finally caught up with the script's substance.
