*********** Thanks, Jim. It was a real disappointment. MANHUNTER had some fantastic scenes in it. I thought the one where Hannibal tweeked the phone with the gum wrapper to get another line out of the prison was great. It was a subtle demon- stration of how smart he was. And MANHUNTER had a violent, wicked, hardboiled shotgun ending to it that was lacking in RED DRAGON. And the bad guy in MANHUNTER was WAY badder-looking than the RED DRAGON one.
