The Cape Town Affair Reviews:

The greatest part of this movie is the occasion to visit Cape Town, South Africa during the height of Apartheid. As a low-budget, spy thriller, it is shot in as many unmodified local settings as possible. Road shots are right in the heart of the downtown and there are harbor shots and scenes from within the Police Headquarters. The images on the wall give away the time frame as well.Claire Trevor is the only actor credited in some Movie Compendia and I wonder if both Brolin and Bisset paid not to be listed!Brolin plays a hard-boiled petty thief and "Jacky" Bisset plays a runner for the spy ring. Claire Trevor plays Sam, the connecting hero to the globe of petty crime and espionage.


On the plus side, there are interesting shots of Capetown and of Table Mountain. Not that many folks know what Capetown looked like in 1967. Not that many folks know what country Capetown is IN for that matter, outside of social activists, gold speculators, and surfers. No, it's not near Provincetown. Also there are interesting shots of Jacqueline Bisset at her most -- well, let's test the word "appealing." Her looks are unimpeachable. James Brolin, young and handsome in a mannequin-like way, does cute nice impressions of Clark Gable and Ronald Reagan in another venues. But you have to ask. Why do they take a peerless piece of cynical and brutal trash like "Pickup on South Street" and do it in color with lesser performers and slipshod direction?Brolin simply can't SMIRK as well as Richard Widmark. And Bisset just looks too elegant, as opposed to the sluttish and overly made-up Jean Peters in the original. Compare the scenes in which the two actresses utter the same lines -- "You're talking like it was HOT, Joey." Bisset sounds as if she's commenting on the pepper pot soup at Bookbinder's Restaurant. With Peters you know exactly what she means. And Claire Trevor, a decent enough actress in her own right, shouldn't be asked to impersonate Thelma Ritter. Nobody on world can imitate Thelma Ritter. Fuller's direction in the original was instant and claustrophobic. His characters brimmed with verisimilitude. The actors here are going through their paces in settings that aren't nearly seedy enough. I'm leaving the politics aside.Stick with the original by all means.


I just purchased this movie for 4 dollars, and allow me say you, it wasn't worth it.No budget, badly scripted, dull, boring, listless, "Cold War" stinker. Difficult to trust that Samuel Fuller was involved in this "movie". There were lines like, "You wish to support us war the commies don't you?"James Brolin looked handsome here, but the terrible guy just wasn't an actor at this scene of his career. All he basically does is look mad and yell and shout the entire movie; gave me a headache. He is living in a run-down shack near a smelly river, with no electric, yet he wears 500 dollar suits. He's a thief who only robs twice the entire movie.Horrible piece of worthless junk.
