I put my headphones on and enjoyed.

I got the Blu-ray last week and just had to watch the opening five minutes - love the powerful bebop drive of Raksin's main theme and the shimmering beauty of John Alton;s cinematography - a great movie and a fabulous Film Noir.

Anohter excellent thriller from Joseph H Lewis who directed the brilliant MY NAME IS JULIA ROSS and the cult classic GUN CRAZY. Though BIG COMBO tends to go heavy in the melodrama department I really liked it. Interesting too for its subversive and subtle homoeroticism between the two tough sadistic characters played by Lee Van Cleef and Earl Holliman.
