Movie #1616: Underworld U.S.A. (1961, Sam Fuller)

This was DVD #7 in the Sam Fuller box set. I saw this one about 35 years ago. The ending seems kinda familiar but the rest was like watching it for the first time. Last night I saw Phil Karlson directing a Fuller story and tonight it was Fuller directing. I give the edge to Karlson. Fuller sets up too many scenes for dramatic effect - but it looks phony and it disrupts the flow of the story. His worst scene is the long long long death careen of Cliff Robertson. It's pretty funny but I'm sure that wasn't the intention.
