donlevy and ladd are great together in this film, imho, and
ladd is wonderful-- he shows more range here than he normally
gets credit for. the brutal scenes bill is referring to are
between ladd and william bendix and feature a very strong
homoerotic subtext that surprising me every time i watch the
movie-- i always wonder if contemporary audiences were as
struck by it as we are now. anyway, i love the movie (but
then i'm a big fan of both ladd and donlevy).
and, as has been discussed here many times, MILLER'S CROSSING
is also a version on this story. gabriel byrne plays the ned
beaumont role and is utterly fantastic.
