99 & 44/100 Dead ★ Call Harry Crown 1974 (PG)

Frankenheimer falters with this silly gangster flick. Harris is hired to kill Dillman, by local godfather O'Brien. Originally written as a satirical look at gangster movies, but it doesn't stick to satire, and as a result is disappointing. 98m/C VHS . Richard Harris, Chuck Connors, Edmond O'Brien, Bradford Dillman, Ann Turkel; D: John Frankenheimer; W: Robert Dillon; M: Henry Mancini.
