A coolly riveting crime saga from director Richard Fleischer (The Boston Strangler, Soylent Green), Violent Saturday tells a brutal noir tale against blazing, sun-drenched Arizona landscapes.
Three criminals arrive in the small mining town of Bradenville, planning on robbing its only bank. But as they start scouting the area and gathering the information they need, the lives of others in the town threaten to get mixed up in their scheme, in a tangle that could lead to disastrous consequences.
Featuring the iconic Victor Mature and Lee Marvin, and with Ernest Borgnine in one of his most unforgettable roles, Violent Saturday is a fascinating gem of Hollywood storytelling, complete with memorably vicious and idiosyncratic details, brilliant performances, and stunning Cinemascope imagery.
Violent Saturday is based on a novel by William L. Heath.

A very under rated and well paced film about a bank robbery in a small town in the USA and how it affects the lives of certain members of the town. The background stories concerning some of the main characters are well developed with an excellent cast including Victor Mature playing against type as a reluctant hero, Ernest Borgnine playing an Amish farmer and Lee Marvin playing one of his usual roles during that era as a vicious bank robber. I first seen this film in Cinemascope at a local cinema when it was first released in 1955 and and the Blu ray conversion of the film is first class. To conclude, I would recommend this film to anyone who prefers a "Peyton Place" style plot mixed with a crime thriller.
