SUE LYON JOINS GEORGE C. SCOTT IN 'THE FLIM-FLAM MAN'

Sue Lyon in The Flim-Flam Man Year: 1967 Rating: ***
Fun, frolicking depression-era adventure about a famous (or infamous) charlatan who travels around conning people along the way...

He meets young naive drifter Michael Sarrazin, who learns the ins-and-outs of rambling-trickery and being one step ahead of the law: which includes Harry Morgan and Albert Salmi as frustrated backwoods cops.

The somewhat contrived, stagey dialogue can be corny, the jovial music a bit intrusive and forboding but because of Irwin Kershner's action-paced direction, the characters, and storyline, are delivered smoothly from one location to the next. LOLITA Sue Lyon has a small but significant role as one of the victims who turns into a love interest for Sarrazin, as he realizes the fleeting life might not be for him. And George C. Scott, constantly jutting his chin, seems to be doing an old man imitation, but its an endearingly memorable character no less.
