Hoezo in KINO

“I know a sure cure for a nosebleed: a cold knife in the middle of the back.” This largely unknown but nonetheless riveting noir sports a killer pace, dynamic camerawork, splendid hard-boiled dialogue and a record amount of bitchslaps doled out. An ex-con trying to stay on the straight and narrow is framed for an armed robbery so he has to find the culprits that fled to Mexico and clear his name before the heat catches up with him. The cast boasts an array of character actors with faces only a mother could love, including Neville Brand, Jack Elam and a young Lee van Cleef. A real b-movie gem that time forgot. Don’t miss out. English language without subtitles.

Storyline

A mysterious fellow (Preston Foster) contacts a trio of criminals (Jack Elam, Neville Brand, Lee Van Cleef) to help with a bank heist. The four wear masks and remain strangers to each other, planning to reunite in Mexico to divvy up the loot. Joe Rolfe (John Payne), the man they framed to take the heat, gets his charges dropped, and the police offer him a reward if he can help recover the cash. He agrees, and when one of the thieves meets his end, Rolfe assumes his identity to catch the crooks.
