This is one of those movies that exudes star power. Steiger is incredible as a chameleon serial killer, assuming disguises, accents and more while being chased by an earnest Seagal and a luminous Remick. Definitely a product of its era, it still packs a punch.
Brilliance by Rod Stieger makes No Way To Treat a Lady a must see for fans of black and white suspense. Steiger plays his role to perfection but Even without his presence the film flows smoothly and captivates the viewer.
Fun, psycho serial killer thriller. In my opinion it was Steiger's best performance. Lee Remick and Segal also shined. There were moments that were happy and others that were tragic and serious, but that is why it was such an interesting movie to have those two opposites playing off one another. I was sad that Steiger's story was not revealed more.
Rod Steiger gives a freakishly good performance in this dark comedy thriller, which also features Doris Roberts in a small role uttering the line "You homo!" If you have Netflix streaming, catch it before it goes away on New Year's Day.
This is a very strange movie, and not in a good way. Half of the time it's pretty good, though, and there are a couple of funny things that happen. The other half it's stupid and boring. This movie's just okay.
A huge rarity, A Black comedy with moments of high drama in which George Segal as Jewish Detective Mo Brummel tracks a sadistic killer played by Steiger. Throw in an utterly gorgeous scene stealing Eileen Heckart as Mo's fabulous mother who just wishes he could be like his brother the Doctor and the stunning Lee Remick as his new girlfriend who turns up for their first date looking beautiful but admits that it took ages to get ready and you have a great film. If you love any of the principal actors it is a must and if you have a yen for a hilarious jewish mama then watch this its great.
Director-for-hire Jack Smight actually manages to maintain a balance between cat n' mouse cop thriller and a somewhat sadistic comedy (based on a William Goldman novel). Rod Steiger chews on the scenery as if it were a sandwich made of leather. His disguises range from homosexual wigmaker to an Irish priest. George Segal plays the henpecked Jewish cop perfectly. This film reminds you how funny he could be back then. Highly watchable, and well-balanced, but somewhat forgettable mainly in how the script lacks some punch (tension). Maybe if Goldman transfered his own novel to the screen, then the film would have carried further into film history.
