A small town is scarred only by sheriff Todd Shaw's unsuccessful courtship of Ellen Beuson, a pacitist who can't abide guns and those who use them. But violence descends on Ellen's household willy-nilly when the U.S. President passes through the town... and slightly psycho hired assassin John Baron finds the Benson home ideal for an ambush.
Running Time: 75 Minutes
MPAA Ratings: Unrated
An interesting, almost experimental little film for 1954. Clocking in at 75 brisk minutes, it's also quite prescient: A man (Frank Sinatra) holes up in a suburban home, taking the family living there hostage for an hour or so. Why? He's going to assassinate the president, whose train will be pulling up at 5 o'clock, right across the street. Sinatra shelved the film after his friend JFK was assassinated many years later. It's now resurfaced to be experienced anew. It's not great filmmaking, but the way a major assassination like this is almost shruggingly planned and executed is quite interesting. The same film made today would involve three car chases, helicopters, and the house blowing up. Suddenly portrays a killing as something that you almost don't bother thinking about before it's done. Fascinating. written by Filmcritic.com
I love this movie and I love Frank Sinatra. I haven't seen this movie in ages and I brought back good memories. A2ZCDs did a great job remastering this and would recommend to all Sinatra fans. written by Jenny Goodrich
All I got to say is any thing with Frank Sinatra in it has to be a hit. The movie is a little dull in the beginning but once Sinatra shows up it becomes very exciting until the very end. Sinatra plays a hit man that takes place in a small California town called Suddenly. I don't want to give too much away so your going to have to find out for yourself what happens. This is a great movie that you wont be disappointed in. written by M. Jirmanos "Amazon Junkie"
