This is a depressing movie, but I found David Janssen to be riveting. I couldn't take my eyes off him. He looks haunted throughout the movie. He's shot someone at the beginning of the movie, but the viewer is firmly on his side, hoping for a good outcome for him.

David Janssen was such a great talent. It's too bad we didn't get 30 more years of screen time with him.
