Storyline

The film centres around gangland boss Vic Morono who presides over a mixed pack of cards with the trumps being the 'The Four Deuces'-Chip Morono, Mickey Navarro, Ben Arlen and Smokey Ross. There's an abundance of humor,sadness and blood in this fast moving film although not necessarily in that order! it all comes to a head in the final shoot out with just one left standing but who is it to be, and whats he been left with... has he been dealt the worst hand of all?

THE FOUR DEUCES (William H. Bushnell Jr., 1976) **
17 November 2006 | by Bunuel1976See all my reviews

Yet another jokey gangster film which proliferated the screens in the wake of BONNIE AND CLYDE (1967); the ragtime score, then, is clearly inspired by the recent success of THE STING (1973).

It's evidently cheaply made and pretty bad overall but, I guess, harmless enough; still, virtually the only thing of interest here is the film's comic-strip look, complete with captioned descriptions during transitions.

Jack Palance (another film I watched as a tribute to him - renting this one would certainly not have been a priority otherwise!) mercilessly chews the scenery as one of two warring gang bosses.
