I just watched The Anderson Tapes on DVD last week. Sidney Lumet directing Jack Lemmon in Death Wish boggles my mind...
Truly a film both of and ahead of its time. It was a valedictory for Karloff, only a year or two before his passing...
Also one of the few screen credits for Daniel Mayer Selznick, son of David O. Selznick and grandson of Louis...
A great counterbalance to the disturbing shooting scenes in this film are the scenes with Karloff. Many of which are sweet, funny and poignant...
Is that Leslie Nielsen's voice on the trailer? Which makes me think it's kind of surprising no one ever did a Naked Gun type take off on these vigilante movies. Maybe it's too narrow a genre for that kind of satire, but Nielsen rampaging through the streets, killing off muggers played by Lloyd Bridges, Peter Graves and Robert Stack, while being tracked by hardnose cop William Shatner, might have been pretty good.
One of my absolute favorite Charles Bronson films alongside Once Upon A Time in the West, The Dirty Dozen, The Great Escape, 10 To Midnight and The Mechanic.
