I thought the movie was as good as the book, not many like that but I loved them both and Mitchum in the first and DeNiro in the second with Mitchum playing the investigator role. Anybody else see it like that?
I also agree that the movie was as good as the book. In fact, I thought the movie was better. The original movie, that is. The remake really turned me off. For me, it was entirely Mitchum who made the movie credible.
