Containing Multitudes Since 2004
ANY movie that Frank Faylen was in, is great to watch; Seigel's name was on a tombstone in a western once - possibly a Clint pic.and Mr Seigel's CV contains 2 of my all time favourites:The Killers, and Kill Charley Varrick. God I love Technicolor.The Seigel-produced Faces (1968) gave Steven Speilberg his first directing gig, a one-day gift from Cassavetes (who was also in The Killers - everything is in circles. Seigel gave us a great scene in that when Lee Marvin pistol whips a blind receptionist and as she lies on the floor unconscious he leans down, puts a finger to his lips and says "Sshhsh").
Producer Walter Wanger conceptualized this film while he was doing time for shooting his wife's (Joan Bennett)agent. He suspected the two of having an affair. Neville Brand would receive a British Oscar (BAFTA) nomination. Leo Gordon, another great character actor and real life ex-con, had to enter and exit through a separate check point for extensive searching. Jerry Kovar
