3 things about Eddy Matalon’s BLACKOUT

Blackout [1978]

1. Nice twist: he doesn’t catch the mugger.
2. The sour look on his face after he’s given out the combination to the safe. Vintage Ray Milland.
3. He lowers his gun and just watches him burn.

Not sure why, but I ended up liking this little suspense thriller. James Mitchum, as the cop, displays a kind of sleepy heroism that’s appealing. Just like his dad. The biggest downside is the truly appalling sound quality of the DVD.
