Pic of the Day: “The Outfit” revisited

Today we take another look at John Flynn‘s The Outfit (1973), the underrated crime drama that gathered together many veterans of the classic film noir genre. Tim and Robert Ryan co-starred again for the first time since Alaska Seas (1954). The following essential conversation has just taken place. Tim: “We’ve got a problem.” Ryan: “No, you’ve got a problem.”

The amusing thing going on here is that just before this shot, a bird poops on Tim’s coat. It took me several viewings to notice it. It could be why he’s smiling.
