Is this the unluckiest fella ever or what.
A compact little noir with only 3 characters, one of whom - played to the hilt by Ann Savage - is the bad girl to end all bad girls. Tom Neal plays a man with the worst luck in the world. Refreshingly unconventional at times.
Funniest line reading:
Man: "Where'd you hide the butts?"
Woman: "On the table, sucka!"
Good and very refreshing movie.
