Leslie Neilsen is Vicious
3 May 2004 | by seawolf7103-1See all my reviews

The same guy who cracks us up as Frank Drebben in the Police Squad movies and as agent WD-40(Spy Hard) and kindly old Mr Magoo was so cruel, mean and depraved in this movie that for a few years he had a bit of trouble shaking that image. The depth of his evilness makes you hate his guts... Of course this was supposed to be a vehicle for pretty boy James Franciscus, but the whole world remembered Sheriff Verne Drover. He was as despicable an any villain of today.....and this was in the 60's.....before many TV cinematographers dared reach inside viewers guts to this degree. If you have the chance - watch it. If you can tape it, email me....I'll buy a copy.
