Description by OLDIES.com:
Lee Marvin is in full antihero mode as remorseless Walker, talking the talk and walking the walk in John Boorman's edgy neo-noir classic filled with imaginative New Wave style, blunt dialogue and Walker's relentless quest that, one by one, smashes into the corporate pecking order of a crime group called The Organization. Angie Dickinson plays the accomplice who uses her seductive wiles to ensnare one of Walker's prey. "I want my 93 grand, Walker growls at him." Throughout, the payoff to that demand is action that "hits like a fat slug from the .38 Lee Marvin uses as an extension of his fist." (Newsweek)
Description by Warner Home Video:
- Theatrical release: August 30, 1967.
- Shot on locations on Alcatraz Island, San Francisco, and in Los Angeles, California.
- Director John Boorman and actor Lee Marvin also worked together on HELL IN THE PACIFIC the following year.
- Boorman claims that on a day when, as a relatively inexperienced director, he reached the set with no idea how to shoot a given scene, Marvin noticed his confusion and quietly told him to take his time setting up the shot. He then feigned hungover incompetence, stopping the shoot until he saw that the director had a handle on the set-up, whereupon he returned to his sobriety, and Boorman proceeded to shoot.
