    Forget "Kings Row"! This is our 40th president's best performance; playing a lowlife scumbag, natch. Lee Marvin, and Clu Gulager are also good as vicious sadists. (These two get a kick out of terrorizing a blind old lady. You gotta love it.) And is Angie Dickinson ever bad? Don't think so. On the downside you have occasionally clunky direction by Don Siegel (those car racing scenes are pretty damn ordinary) and John Cassavetes, as usual, cannot get past the intense, glowering characters he always played. Give it a solid B. (Not quite as good as Siodmak's original, which is better directed.)

    The Killers was Ronald Reagan's last film before becoming governor of California. I remember seeing it (actually only the last half) on a local Washington DC area channel when I was about 15 years old. It's a loose remake of the 1946 film noir of the same title starring Burt Lancaster and Ava Gardner(which I've seen at least 20 times). I'm surprised TCM isn't showing it as part of your SOTM tribute to Reagan. Please show it soon; I would like to tape it on VHS and watch it in its entirety since it apparently isn't available on DVD. Also, Lee Marvin and Angie Dickinson co-starred in the crime thriller with a similar plot "Point Blank" 3 years after The Killers.

    "The Killers", both 1946 and 1964 versions, are good tough-guy movies. They can be bought here, though initially, they are on back order. Worth the wait. Burt Lancaster and Lee Marvin were two of the very best.
