Baxter's lively performance nearly saves this sinking ship.

Audience Reviews for The Come On

½

Garden variety noir but Baxter gives it all she's got to make the material better than it is. She gets very little assistance from Sterling Hayden giving his usual block of wood performance but John Hoyt is properly contemptible as her partner in crime/nemesis.

Super Reviewer

Tough people populating a tough story of manipulation and double dealing. Some fun character performances surround a typically stony Sterling Hayden. Jesse White, who later became familiar as "The Maytag Repairman" does a nice turn as a P.I.
