A classic

3 years, 6 months ago at Feb 1 8:13
The beginning is quite confusing and it takes a while to take off. But both leads Tony Curtis and Burt Lancaster are just great. They play 2 of most slimy and conniving characters I have ever seen. The end is like a Greek tragedy. Definitely worth a look.
