The Hard Goodbye Film
We have to laugh at some of the absurd and implausible violence. Marv survives being knocked over by a speeding car twice in quick succession, can take any number of bullets or blows to the head and even survives the first jolt on the electric chair. Nevertheless, like Hartigan in "That Yellow Bastard," he winds up dead.
Marv was arrested, or rather filled with bullets, at the scene of a murder immediately after committing it so why was it necessary to force a confession from him? These police sure are corrupt, threatening to kill Marv's mother.
