After doing a re-evaluation of my opinion of John Lund as Johnny Dollar, I have decided my original thinking was flawed. After listening to more of his portrayal as Johnny Dollar in the early fifties, have led me to raise the bar on his performance. Lund’s Dollar, while dark, is much warmer than Edmund O’Brien who preceded him and quite credible. It was a time when the Johnny Dollar franchise was in a much more realistic and more noirish phase than the Bob Bailey years under producer Jack Johnstone. Jaime de Valle’s productions are really quite good.
