The Big Combo

This is a 1955 film noir about Detective Diamond and his nabbing of Mr. Brown (that is what he was called throughout the entire film).

Pretty good stuff here, lots of moody lighting, 1950’s gangster acting, and it had a young Lee van Cleef with that voice of his. Earl Holliman (a familiar face, but not name) was also in it, the rest were probably big names at the time, but I did not know any of them.

I am keen on watching more of this kind of stuff.

Date watched: January 14th
Score: 7.5/10
Film count 2016: 9
