Truckers and Tragedies

5 years, 5 months ago at Jan 11 15:41
There's plenty to like in this well-paced story with snappy dialog and strong performances from all involved. I wanted to see it because of Bogart and the director, but Ida Lupino was the highlight.

She gives one of the most deliciously over-the-top performances I've ever seen as an intensely jealous, conniving femme fatale who frames a man for murder after he rejects her.

"dvd George Raft ja Humphrey Bogart näyttelevät Fabrinin veljeksiä, jotka työllistävät itsensä ajamalla rekkaa paikasta toiseen. Elokuvan nimi on hieman harhaanjohtava, sillä tyypit kyllä ajaa ympäri vuorokauden. Työ on raskasta ja vaarallista. Pomot kusettaa, velkojat ahistelee ja kotiinkin tekisi jo mieli. Lohtua arkeen tuo kuppiloiden paha kahvi, sanavalmis tarjoilija ja flipperit. Aina kun yritteliäät veljekset onnistuvat bisneksissä, jokin menee entistä pahemmin pieleen. Raft"

"22.3. (DVD/Kirjasto) Rekkamieselämän kuvaus on - huolimatta Bogartin ylilyövästä ajatuksesta nukahtaneen kuskin autoon pomppaamisesta - viihdyttävää ja ainakin teoreettisesti ammattikunnan raskauteen kantaa ottavaa laatufilmiä. Kompastuskivenä toimii kaavamaisen ristiriidan väkisin vänkkääminen elokuvaan - eihän sitä pelkällä hedelmien kuskauksella yleisön mielenkiintoa millään voisi säilyttää. Pohjimmiltaan hyväsydämisen ja lupsakan dokupampun tieltä raivaaminen ja t"
