Worth watching for Quincy Jones' hip score alone
31 January 2003 | by rayxtSee all my reviews

This film defies the usual story line development - where the hero is introduced if not in the opening scene, then the next. Before Jack Lord gets a look in a whole cavalcade of characters has graced the screen, why and wherefore is discussed at length by all and sundry and the dialogue and characterizations is so dated to turn the clock back to the 1940's.

The music, (by Quincy Jones) however, is a hidden gem. Totally cool and laid back jazz. Hip bongos.
