I see this movie has been reissued in a fancy edition. And even though you can watch it free online, deserves the full big-TV-screen treatment. All sorts of strange things about it. Sinatra is eerie and compelling — way beyond even his mobster overtones. And it’s such a strange prophecy — including the Lee Harvey Oswald connection. The fact that it keeps getting revived and forgotten about over and over is peculiar in itself.
I ran across it one afternoon when they still showed all those inappropriate B&W movies to kids home from grade school. FRANK SINATRA as a ruthless assassin and general serial-killer type? It was, as they say, a pulse-pounder.
