Critic Reviews for The Rise and Fall of Legs Diamond
Director Budd Boetticher and screenwriter Joseph Landon are as fast on their feet as their hoofer-turned-gangster protagonist; the efficiency and momentum of their storytelling should be models of inspiration for today's filmmakers.
Strange and often grim gangster film, notable for some off-trail approaches.
Audience Reviews for The Rise and Fall of Legs Diamond
Overlooked gangster picture with the fierce energy of the early classics. A rags to riches story with the typical hubristic, heartless, no-nonsense character battling to get to the top of the underworld.
