Critic Reviews for The Rise and Fall of Legs Diamond

Audience Reviews for The Rise and Fall of Legs Diamond

  • Jan 02, 2020
    Sometimes overlooked, The Rise And Fall of Legs Diamond is one of the better crime bios of the 1950s (released in 1960). Ray Danton is magnetic in the title role of a psychopath Legs Diamond who holds no remorse for the multiple killings, betrayals and broken hearts he was responsible for. Unfortunately, most of the rest of the cast fails to match Danton's magnetism.

    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.
