Audience Reviews for Walk the Dark Street
Chuck Conners (The Rifleman TV show of the sixties) stars in this rather weird crime drama. Here as a hunter, he "aims" to kill his prey, a human, claimin his rifle is just a camera.

Weird action drama starring Connors as a somewhat crazed big-game hunter who challenges Army officer Ross (whom he blames for his soldier-brother's death from a heart attack to a duel by giving each man a camera-gun he has invented and forcing each to defend himself in the streets of Los Angeles during a simulated manhunt.
While not your top pick for movie of the year, this non-the-less interesting film has a rather novel twist in it. While a tale of revenge, the hunter becomes the hunted... oh gee, haven't we seen that one before?
I do have one real criticism of this film. These two guys carry rifles in full view (in their cases of course) all over the city. While one of them is stopped by police, it doesn't raise an eyebrow by anyone! It gets rather tiresome for these actors to have this anchor on them all the time.

NOTES about the film:
1 Best known for some classic "B" science fiction films of the 1950s such as MONSTER FROM THE OCEAN FLOOR, writer/producer/director Wyott Ordung attempted to work in the LA film noir/psychological drama vein with this 1956 rarity, taking the classic "Most Dangerous Game" scenario as a starting point, but reinventing it in a very novel way.
