Uneven small-town thriller.

The cast is a museum exhibit on the nigh-extinct art of scaled-in American bit acting, with the magnificent Sylvia Sidney as the daughter of a prominent family brought low, her flashing pridefulness intact, and Tommy Noonan as a peeping poltroon.

... Ernest Borgnine as a pacifist Amish farmer plunging a pitchfork into the back of the devil character played by Lee Marvin ....

Violent Saturday seems rooted in tradition, but as an exciting pulp story with a profound center, it manages to break all the rules.
