      Saw this movie years ago and it was a pleasure to view it again. Brought up many memories of the original event and was interesting to see a very young Kirk Russell. Quality was very good.

        Comments about Deadly Tower (1976 TV M) (MOD):

        The Deadly Tower is an entertainig and fact based movie about an incident I remember watching unfold on TV as it actually happened in 1966. Kurt Russell is excellent as the disturbed killer in a role that was atypical for him at the time. I was fascinated throughout the entire 90 minutes without once being tempted to hit the pause button to leave the screen for any reason.

          Comments about Deadly Tower (1976 TV M) (MOD):

          I have always enjoyed this film. Kurt Russell plays a good crazy without much dialog on his part. Love the shotguns in everyone's car trunk. Definitely not California.

            This film transfer looks as if it was taken from the original master negative. I am very pleased with the job Warner Archive has been doing with these older films which I love best.
