I just bought this film on DVD for $5 from a disposal bin. Why? to be honest, I wanted to see if Jack could act.
I found out he can! This film is another in a stream of 1970's examples of a great script and (some) excellent acting ruined by disappointing cinematography.
Very little imagination appears to have been used in the design of shots and locations, which is a odds with the good choice of atmospheric. It's as if a minimalistic lip-service has been paid to realising the vision of the screenplay.
Was this budget related? It was right in the middle of a massive move to TV production by a lot of the big money Hollywood players.
Personally, I'd like to see this film remade with a better crew and budget - the script deserves another chance ... maybe Jack does to!
