The Valachi Papers 07/15/17

Twilight Time

Charles Bronson plays a real-life Mafiosi in a period gangland saga with a fine script, some good performances and a production so sloppy that the whole thing could be called The Anachronism Papers. Joseph Wiseman and Lino Ventura supply the tough-guy star-power and Bronson actually commits himself to the role — quite a change of pace for one of his later pictures. Also with Jill Ireland. On Blu-ray from Twilight Time.
