3.0 out of 5 stars Two interesting near-misses in a decent double-bill 24 April 2012
By Trevor Willsmer HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
With its pop art title sequence and stylish opening tour of the river bottom graveyards where gently swaying gangsters, molls, wannabes and union bosses are weighed down by concrete galoshes as mob war rages on the docks above them, 99 and 44/100% Dead aka Call Harry Crown never manages to turn into the kind of comic book pastiche of gangster movies it clearly wants to be. Robert Dillon's script has the makings and throws in surreal touches like sewers full of alligators happily co-existing with tramps, Bradford Dillman's extwovewted mob boss who can't pwonounce his `r's or Chuck Connors' hitman with a claw for a hand complete with a suitcase full of multi-purpose attachments, but it never goes far enough, leaving the film an underdeveloped action movie with deliberately one-dimensional characters who aren't quite colourful or iconic enough to cut it. As the bespectacled and underdressed out-of-town enforcer called in to save old-school mobster Edmond O'Brien's bacon, Richard Harris gives it his best despite a spectacularly bad haircut but too often leaves the impression that they wanted Michael Caine but he was busy that month. Aside from the opening and part of a bridge shootout John Frankenheimer's handling of the action scenes isn't vigorous or imaginative enough to compensate for the other failings. Only the film's trailer and Henry Mancini's score really seems to really get the idea, giving it a kind of straightfaced tongue-in-cheek urgency at times while playing it cool and mellow at others. Even as a bit of a misfire there's enough that's quirky and stylish enough to keep you watching without getting bored, but it's easy to understand why this vanished almost without a trace after failing to find an audience in 1974.

This was a film I saw in the 1980s and lost track of it then I saw a film clip on you tube and started to look a round for it and found it on amazon I have now watched this film at least 3 times and yet again I think this was one of Harris best films

5.0 out of 5 stars two great films 20 Sep 2013

If the Frankenheimer film is a strange masterpiece of irony and action, the Mullingan's one is real a great mafia movie, one ofe the best in his genre.

4.0 out of 5 stars Classic mid 70's actioners! 11 Dec 2011
By Richardson - Published on Amazon.com
Okay... I was 19 when these movies hit the theatres and they are pretty typical of the kind of "B" movie action flicks of that era and even featured some soon forgotten actors of the day...a couple of higher priced talent and a couple of legendary directors!

FIRST ... let me say that while the back of the 2 disc set says that both pictures are 1:78 aspect ratio .... they are in fact 2:35...so all you buffs who remember these films relax they are appropriate to their original size but labeled wrong...

Now... while its fun to see Linda Haynes as the love interest in "The Nickel Ride" (her fame was fleeting and mostly came from her sexy romp in "Rolling Thunder") and the lead Jason Miller (of Exorcist fame) this film was certainly not on a par with "To Kill a Mockingbird" ...which was directed by the same man Robert Mulligan. My main enjoyment in revisiting this film was seeing Bo Hopkins, John Hillerman and Victor French in supporting roles.

the other film 99 and 44/100% Dead! features one of my all time favorite directors John Frankenheimer.... and his ability with action shows. Of course the guilty pleasure of seeing Chuck Conners (The Rifleman) as "Claw Zuckerman" as well a another classic Henry Mancini score and Richard Harris' always compelling work raise this film above a "B" for me.

There are Trailers for both films as bonus features but no chapter index....both movies feature about 10-11 chapter stops though.

The prints look very good and I think being in combination not only are a good pair but make this a solid investment at $15 or so.

recommended for fans of 70's films..

3.0 out of 5 stars Buy it for 'Nickel Ride' 20 Aug 2012
By Brian - Published on Amazon.com

Some directors have a gift for comedy. John Frankenheimer isn't one of them. A big fan of his early work ('The Manchurian Candidate,' 'Seven Days in May,' 'The Train,' 'Seconds,' 'The Iceman Cometh') and not so much of his later stuff ('Prophecy,' 'Dead Bang,' 'Reindeer Games,' 'Island of Dr. Moreau'-- although 1998's 'Ronin' is a happy exception), I found '99 and 44/100% Dead' a very amateurish attempt at an entirely superfluous genre: the gangster spoof. If you can, imagine a mating of 'The Sting' and 'Alphaville' infused with Keystone Cops humor and a swinging-sixties artistic sensibility (yes, it was made in 1974). The story is perfunctory and almost irrelevant, as are the characters serving it (even played by some big names including Richard Harris and Edmond O'Brien), so it's the aesthetic of the film that must work, and it doesn't. Just a jumble of half-baked ideas, gunfire and car chases. The widescreen presentation, however, is very nice, and there are numerous well-framed shots to ogle (the East River-bed 'graveyards,' for instance). Film rates 1 1/2 stars; picture and audio 4 stars.

The keeper of this set is a movie I hadn't seen or heard of before: Robert Mulligan's 'The Nickel Ride.' It's a quiet thriller-- a character study, really-- about a respected, aging mafia property manager ('The Exorcist''s Jason Miller) who discovers too late that his services have become obsolete to those who employ him. No surprise that this modest project flew under the radar, as it features no major stars and generates only a little heat in the action/suspense department (notoriety crib-death when you're released in the same year as 'Jaws,' 'One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest' and 'Dog Day Afternoon'); but performances all around are sensational, and the beaten-down '70s Manhattan mood (interrupted with great metaphorical impact in the second act by a bucolic-cabin-in-the-woods scenery change) evokes a compelling sense of time and place. Picture and audio are also first-rate. 3 1/2 stars for the film; 4 stars for presentation.

I saw 99 and 44/100% Dead as a kid & it left a lasting impression- it was the gangster version of a good spaghetti western with some intentionally fun humor that works.
3.0 out of 5 stars I really wanted to like this... 9 Feb 2013
By Guy M. Budziak - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
... THE NICKEL RIDE in particular. Years ago I acquired a film noir encyclopedia with listings from A to Z, and this film was among those listed. For that reason alone I've been wanting to see it, and now that I have I can say unequivocally that it's no great shakes. Too bad, because I like Jason Miller as an actor, and I think he deserved better. But the film has no bite, comes across more like a made-for-tv movie from that decade (the Seventies). As for 99 AND 44/100 % DEAD: Frankenheimer tries for a spoof of the crime genre and doesn't quite pull it off. The film is quirky, goofy, but not that funny, which I think was the intention. The cast is fairly interesting, with Richard Harris, Chuck Connors and Edmond O'Brien among those carrying this picture, Worth a glimpse perhaps for its novelty appeal, but not much else to be offered here.
