Johnny Cool (6/10)

Johnny Cool is a black and white gangster movie from 1964 featuring a pre-Bewitched Elizabeth Montgomery and, in the title role, Henry Silva demonstrating that he is more cheekbone than man. Johnny just goes around killing various mob bosses which include members of the Rat Pack and the great Telly Savalis. In hindsight, there are a bunch of plot points that never pay off and Silva’s portrayal of Johnny as a cold, icy killer means he has one expression of cold, icy-ness throughout the entire picture. The Sammy Davis Jr. cameo is fun though.
