  • 突然剧情简介
      In post-war America, the President of the United States is scheduled to journey through the small town of Suddenly, California. Claiming to be checking up on security prior to his arrival, a group of FBI agents arrive at the home of the Bensons, on top of a hill that looks down upon the station where the Presidential train is due to stop. However, they soon turn out to be assassins led by the ruthless John Baron (Frank Sinatra), who take over the house and hold the family hostage.
      Sheriff Tod Shaw (Sterling Hayden) arrives with Dan Carney (Willis Bouchey), a Secret Service agent in charge of the President's security detail. When he does, Baron and his gangsters shoot Carney and a bullet fractures Shaw's arm.
      Baron sends one of his two henchmen to double-check on the President's schedule but he is killed in a shootout with the police. Jud (James O'Hara), a television repairman, shows up at the house and also becomes a hostage. Pidge (Kim Charney) goes to his grandfather's dresser to fetch some medication and notices a fully loaded revolver which he replaces with his toy cap gun.
      Baron is confronted by the sheriff on the risks and meaning of killing the President and Baron's remaining henchman begins showing some reluctance. For Baron, however, these are the very least of his concerns and it soon becomes clear that he is a psychopath whose pleasure comes from killing – who and why he kills being the least of his problems.
      A sniper's rifle has been mounted on a metal table by a window. Jud discreetly hooks the table up to the 5000 volt plate output of the family television. Pop Benson (James Gleason) then spills a cup of water on the floor beneath the table. Although the hope is that Baron will be shocked to death, his remaining henchman touches the table first and is electrocuted, firing the rifle repeatedly and attracting the attention of police at the train station as he struggles to free himself. Baron shoots Jud, disconnects the electrical hookup and aims the rifle as the president's train arrives at the station, but to his surprise, doesn't stop (having been alerted to the risk). Ellen Benson (Nancy Gates) shoots Baron in the chest and Shaw shoots him again. Baron's last words are, "Don't... please."

    刺杀总统算是黑色电影里很独特的题材,基本上全片都只设定在一个狭小的空间内,并且还是白天,总体很有张力但有过于话唠的嫌疑。代表正义的警长实在太神烦了,还不如丧心病狂的反派有魅力(和长得帅)。

    3.5星,一家老小对抗试图暗杀总统的黑帮对黑色电影来说三观太正了点,不过瘦皮猴的最后一句台词算是力挽狂澜了。。。“坏人”才是黑色电影的灵魂从这个角度来说也就难怪海登扮演的好警察那么挫了而瘦皮猴和海登之间二十六公分的身高差也真是有够萌。PS困于室内的部分和盖世枭雄以及危急时刻类似。

    Key Largo。The Desperate Hours。槍。歸國軍人與冷戰氛圍的結合。開場緩慢瑣碎,Frank Sinatra直到20分鐘才低調進場,高潮有力(尤其那段近15分鐘),劇本節奏獨具。題材好,換個導演能更好。
