"Years of police work have taught Detective Finlay that where there's crime, there's motive. But he finds no usual motive when investigating the beating death of a man. The man was killed because he was a Jew. 'Hate', Finlay says, 'is like a gun.' ... Edward Dmytryk...directs, draping the genre's stylistic backdrops and flourishes around a topic rarely before explored in films: anti-Semitism in the U.S. Here, Hollywood took aim at injustice ... and caught bigotry in a Crossfire."--Container

"Tall Randolph Scott is every inch a hero in three bullet-laced westerns. The secessionist fervor of the 1850s comes to California, and undercover Army officer Scott aims to thwart the separatist passions in The man behind the gun. There's Thunder over the plains and lightning in Scott's holsters in the second film. He portrays an Army captain assigned to a lawless area of Texas after the Civil War. Next, Scott is Riding shotgun and heading into a whirlwind of trouble: a mob bent on vigilante justice wrongly suspects him of robbing a stagecoach. An action bull's-eye all the way!"--Container

Ein römischer Klatschjournalist mit Schriftstellerambitionen beginnt seine Jagd nach den "süssen" Geheimnissen der Prominenz auf der Via Veneto mit seinen exklusiven Nachtclubs und Cafes, in denen das nächtliche Leben pulsiert. Bei seinen alltäglichen Streifzügen durch das Milieu des italienischen Jetset lernt er zum Leidwesen seiner ihn penetrant bemutternden Verlobten eine Reihe faszinierender Frauen kennen. Als ein enger Freund, der aufgrund seiner soliden Lebensweise als Vorbild galt, sich das Leben nimmt, entpuppt sich das von Marcello angestrebte Leben in Reichtum und Glamour als eine Welt des Scheins und der Vergänglichkeit. Fellinis bissiges Gesellschaftsporträt "Das süsse Leben" ist ein Klassiker der Filmkunst mit Marcello Mastroianni, Anouk Aimée, Anita Ekberg und Lex Barker. (Quelle: Covertext)
