One of Duffy's greatest films..
In this film,Patrick Duffy gives an endearing and very realistic performance ,portraying Harry Baranski in this tale of a stuggling musician in Buffalo,N.Y.Filmed in 1984,this flick exudes the vibe of that era,especially with catch phrases like"home free"and"you just a chump man",not to mention the aura of downtown '80's Buffalo and Lackawana.Harry gets sucked into doing dirty work for the Fat Man(Fred Keller),the owner of an antique shop who has a lusting for stained glass "like they don't make anymore".To get his sax out of hock,Harry agrees to rob some houses.One house in particular is the estate of a woman who just lost her record executive husband.Inside this house,Harry discovers this mans Charley Parker jazz collection,which he starts lusting after.But what he lusts after most is the picture of the mans wife,Diane,which he sneaks off with along with some stained glass and a valuable ring and love letters he finds in the lady's room.What happens next after this turn of events is a whirlwind of jealousy,lust, greed,and just plain backstabbing.I'm not giving the rest of this movie away because that would be a definite spoiler.All i'm saying is rent and watch this movie on a Friday or Saturday night because it's one of those types of movies that you sleep good by after watching.
Understanding the movie Death Smiles on a Murderer..secrets revealed
You have to see this movie more than once to understand and figure out what's going on.In short,after being reanimated from the dead,Greta Von Holstein(Ewa Aulin)seeks revenge on a lover who jilted her by faking a carriage accident and causing the death of its driver on the estate of the son of the man who impregnated her.She is in cahoots with the butler of the estate,who helps with a lot of her dirty work(then meets his end after she uses him).A doctor(Klaus Kinski)finds out her secret after ministering to her after the buggy accident and copies an Incan formula off of her gold pendant for his own use and fame.The pendant was made for her by her brother(with whom she had an incestuous relationship with)who brought her back from the grave after a miscarriage and inscribed her name,the year of her rebirth,and a mathematical formula for reanimation on the pendant.Greta causes the death of almost everyone in the cast,but you won't really understand anything until about halfway through the movie.And she makes sure no one is left to tell her tale!Surrealistic sound track by Berto Pisano keeps the movie on it's feet in the tradition of Phantasm.Definitely a must see!
