thanks rene, i've seen both films - really good music in "odds against" too, by the modern jazz quartet i think? there's a great scene where belafonte
(in a moment of personal crisis) does a sort of breakdown/vibraphone freakout in a swanky niteclub. gotta love a perfect-crime-gone-wrong noir film w/ a jazz soundtrack.

i believe i read "big heat" years ago but it musn't have left the impression
"rogue cop" has.
