    This film was truly Dynamite. Never heard of it before.

    Saw this (on ABC I believe) in the mid-70s, never again till now. Flabbergasted to find it, thanks so much!

    Request-wise: A widescreen HARD CONTRACT would be an early bday/xmas present, as the youtube version isn’t quite awesome looking. Had a VHS from TCM’s airing 20 years ago, but that one busted.

    Insanely terrible yet boring. Not Berlin’s fault. Bad script, bad director, bad Legrand score.

    Awesome film, Berlin and Sheider are fantastic, and Legrand’s score is lovely.
    What a find, thanks!
