Blu-Rays News #242: The Secret Ways (1961).

Directed by Phil Karlson
Starring Richard Widmark, Sonja Ziemann, Howard Vernon, Senta Berger

Phil Karlson is one of my favorite directors, and it’s always good to see one of his films come to Blu-Ray (from Kino Lorber in the fall). The time, it’s The Secret Ways (1961), a pre-007 spy movie. Karlson and Widmark didn’t see eye to eye on the approach to the movie, and Widmark took over direction of the last week of the shoot. There’s plenty of the typical hard-edged vibe you get with Karlson to recommend this one. A very cool movie.

    Glad to see Kino Lorber releasing minor gems such as THE SECRET WAYS, but whatever happened to CHARLEY VARRICK? It’s been nearly a year now since Kino announced that it was coming soon. Any inside scoop, Toby?
