Audience Reviews for I Died a Thousand Times


I went into this one rather blind, in that I was expecting a B & W film and got one in color, and I had no idea it was a re-make of an older Humphrey Bogart film. I have to say that I enjoyed it for what it was, with Palance playing a consummate tough guy, and I would like to revisit it after seeing the original. Well worth a look.

Almost scene for scene redo of High Sierra with color added but missing Raoul Walsh's energizing touch. Palance and Shelley Winters are fine actors but Bogart and Ida Lupino they are not so the whole enterprise comes across as rather pointless.
