| Lynn Redgrave
This chaotic, fitfully amusing comedy of how Lynn Redgrave's character came to mastermind the kidnapping of a Mafia don owes its occasional successes largely to Ms. Redgrave's crisp performance and her sardonic delivery of some amusing lines. Victor Mature is also fine as an oblivious Mafia don. Dom Deluise and John Astin put a lot of energy into their roles as lawyers, and Pat Morita has a funny monologue about how Japanese people can't pronounce the letter L. However, the script stumbles in several directions at once, trying and failing to cover the subplots in the Evan Hunter novel, and the other men in the cast, particularly Paul Sand and Austin Pendleton as Redgrave's unwitting henchmen, along with three or four other alumni of the Second City troupe's first year all wind up playing their characters alike, as vague, whiny and low key. The net effect is slow and dull. Give this a miss.
