  • The Rise and Fall of Legs Diamond

    1960. USA. Directed by Budd (Oscar) Boetticher. With Ray Danton, Karen Steele, Elaine Stewart, Warren Oates. Boetticher—better known for his string of low-budget, high-caliber Randolph Scott Westerns—was, along with directors like Don Siegel and Phil Karlson, a Midas who could transform genre dross into gilded, if not golden, treasure. Here, he references prohibition-era gangster films of the 1930s and anticipates Boardwalk Empire. 101 min.
