Combo Patter

When Fante and Mingo appear
You can't help but think something's queer
Holliman and Van Cleef
Almost leave you stone deef
When they plant something right in your ear.

David Cairns

The only warmth in The Big Combo is generated between gunmen Lee Van Cleef and Earl Holliman, while their mobster boss Richard Conte uses a hearing aid as a weapon against cop Cornel Wilde.
