Big Combo R2 (Uk Import) - Lewis, Joseph H.
Releasedatum: 22 oktober 2012
Police Lt. Leonard Diamond (Cornel Wilde) is criticized by his superior Capt. Peterson (Robert Middleton) for his obsessive but fruitless investigation of organized crime boss Mr. Brown, motivated by Diamond's love for Brown's girlfriend Susan Lowell (Jean Wallace). Watched at all times by henchmen Mingo (Earl Holliman) and Fante (Lee Van Cleef), and masochistically drawn to Brown, Susan is unable to walk away from him, and overdoses on pills in a suicide attempt. In her delirium, she utters the name 'Alicia'. Diamond follows up on the new lead, and gets closer to defeating his adversary. Meanwhile Brown's former boss but now humiliated underling, Joe (Brian Donlevy), believes that Brown has gone too far in his personal vendetta against Diamond and tries to enlist Mingo and Fante in overthrowing him. Will the henchmen be temted or remain loyal to Mr Brown? Though superficially a story of good vs. evil, Joseph H. Lewis's film noir presents a complex world, visually captured by John Alton's stark photography, in which the lines between good/evil and love/hate are not always clear....
