Hmmm. Movie failed to live up to that poster, which handily kicks its ass.

I actually remember it fondly. Robert Ryan was quite good in this as I recall.
Great poster.

I watched a bit of this over the holidays...it's hard to judge it based on brief snatches on TCM Canada (my uncle has satellite...damn it) between family conversations. Although I got a big kick out of that John Wayne film where he plays a Navy officer turned playwright. I didn't know Ford could be THAT campy.
