Not Streep or Scheider but Greenbacks


Greenbacks was the only thing I could remember from when I saw this film as a teenager probably when it was first aired shown on TV in the UK. Watched it again last night and thought it was a good, creepy thriller. Didn't remember the numerous Hitchcock homages, or the fact that Streep or Scheider were in it - the reason I recorded it to watch. I am surprised it hasn't got more frequent showings on terrestrial TV. Caught it last night on TCM.

Its a very important reference point for me about the film.

Thank Gawd for TCM. Watching it right now. If not for them, some of these little-seen movies would just gather dust on the shelf. I always thought this movie was pretty good, as a thriller.

I love this movie and am glad it is finally on DVD and Blu-Ray.

Each time I see this movie, I love it a little more, so I bought it. Agree with you about TCM. Growing up you could see their library on Channel 7 in NY or Channel 9 in Chicago, and the like, but no more. If not for TCM, one would be hard-pressed to share the classics with young family members. TCM is why I haven't cut the cord with Dish. Although I understand Sling TV has added TCM, so perhaps...
