I did a double take when I saw that it was Lawrence Tierney as Dillinger. He was really good looking once.

See "Devil Thumbs a Ride" if you want to see Lawrence Tierney at his worst (and by that I mean his best).

you need to do more gangster noir flicks, forget all that other stuff. I'm gonna check this one out asap.

I haven't seen this one in a bit, but I remember really liking it and wishing it had just a bit more run time, felt a bit too compact. <br><Br> I agree Michael Mann's take on it with J Depp should be intriguing.

and he plans it out in advance, not on a day-to-day basis...

He needs to rest up to catch nearly three hours of ass kicking in Battle of the Bulge.

it's on the same shelf as the bucket that the Kentucky Fried Rat came in. What a doofus.

It's a great early noir. Supposedly it heavily influenced Twin Peaks.

he plays that security guard in the episode where bart steals the video game. the commentary track talks about what a mean sonavabitch tierney was. very amusing.

Have I? If I did I have no memory of it. Those 16mm parties were a long, long time ago, though. It'd be cool to break out some 16 again. I have a few prints I haven't watched yet... a scope print of CONFESSIONS OF A POLICE CAPTAIN starring Franco Nero and Martin Balsam being the one I'm the most interested in...

I do enjoy his performance in Dillinger, but I think a lot of the time he's just playing a slightly meaner version of himself in real life. there are hundreds of stories of him drunkenly assaulting people, making ridiculously strange requests, threatening to stab Jerry Seinfeld...I mean seriously...<p>Nicholson's role in The Shining is entertaining, but it's not much of a stretch, is it? Same with Tierney, I think.

Lawrence Tierney Was Mean On-Screen and Off-Screen. Go over to WIKI to read some of his antics, such as pulling a kitchen knife on Jerry Seinfeld. I never knew that actor SCOTT BRADY was his brother. I liked SB's acting years ago
