Surprisingly few reviews for this film on letterboxd, considering it stars Peter O’Toole and is directed by Otto Preminger, but I suppose word is out that the film is a stinker. It meanders, it bores, and it drags on and on. Not a bit of the interesting synopsis happens the way I expected it to—there’s almost no action in this at all. O’Toole’s disinterested performance is kind of enjoyable, but I know he could have done better and brought something more to this. The whole film is extremely disappointing.
