The Racketeer and My Girlfriend

What a delicious, but difficult to describe, movie from the 1970's! With both Jack Palance and Carol Lynley starring, I was excited to watch it, and as the movie opened I thought that I was in for a light-hearted comedy crime adventure, similar to the Batman television series . . . Boy oh Boy was I wrong! Sure, the adventure is wrapped in a comic book style, but the drama is real, and really serious . . . this show is not for children or the meek of heart. Rated 'R' when released, it is not for the kiddies, despite the comic-book opening. Another thing that kept me thinking comic-book comedy was the voice of Jack Palance . . . he used a voice and speaking style that is totally different than anything heard before or after this movie . . . . I don't know why, but here is my 'out of left field' explanation . . . This movie was made three years after the blockbuster Godfather movie, and in that movie the voice used by Marlon Brando was different than any voice that he used before or since . . . and after watching all of this movie, and recognizing many plot twists that are very 'Godfather' like, I believe that this story is an homage to that great movie . . . albeit with enough of a different plot and enough comic-book flavor to avoid being a copycat story. There are also a few 'this feels like The Sting' moments in the picture. I didn't see this movie back in 1975, and I'm glad that I didn't, because I might have thought of it as a badly made B-movie trying to find success on the coattails of the blockbusters that preceded it. In reality I think that it is an incredible homage to the great crime dramas of the early 1970's, particularly The Godfather, and I enjoyed every moment of it. I must also confess that watching Carol Lynley was part of the appeal for me . . . She is ten years older than I am, but in the 1970's whenever I saw her on television or in the movies I was always in love . . . something about her personality and smile struck a chord with me and I was convinced that if we ever met in person stars would fall from the sky and church bells would ring in the distance. Sure it's silly . . . but isn't that part of the lure of motion pictures and motion picture stars? We all find movie stars that resonate deep within us that make us an instant fan of their work. I try to pull out good photos of every actor that I can to add to the flavor of the review and tempt you to watch the movie . . . I ask your indulgence in my deliberate attempt to put more pictures of Carol Lynley under this review than of any of the other stars . . . . sigh . . . . maybe one day yet . . . . Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter on it and enjoy the show.
