havent seen it in a while. interesting that it was a box office failure despite praise from a number of prominent reviewers including pauline kael.

Studio executives analyzed the reviews for months, concluding that the reason for the film's failure was the misleading advertising campaign in which it had been promoted as a "detective story". They spent $40,000 on a new release campaign, which included a poster by Mad magazine artist Jack Davis.

Another 70's bright sun LA noir with a protagonist that mutters to himself in a way that should embarrass any self-respecting viewer is Save The Tiger starring Jack Lemmon. Not the critical darling that TLG is but it was Lemmon's personal favorite. With Jack Gilford
