Posts from Robbie in thread „Big Jim McLain (1952)“

    I did a little more research and found the following article.

    Once again, the West Coast reception of ”Blood Alley" was more positive than that of it Eastern counterpart. The Critic Philip Schewer described it as "a good movie of the old epic school," (Los Angeles Times, September 29, l955). In the end, "Blood Alley" was less popular at the box-office than either ”Big Jim McLain" or ”Sea Chase," grossing in domestic rentals two million dollars.

    According to the IMDB Big Jim Mclain cost $825,000 to make and grossed in over 2 million that therefore would make it a hit.
