I haven't seen the first version of the film, but everyone seems to like it.


       The original is much better than the remake.....not as brutal or as frankly sexual but much more atmospheric and suspensful. Mitchum really does seem like some kind of Uberman and doesn't chew the scenery the way DeNiro did in the remake. You should catch this one sometime.
