We return this week to that superlative Film Noir Blu-ray set recently released by our friends at Kit Parker/Mill Creek, with another obscure Film Noir for your viewing enjoyment.
Nina Foch has a dream that a man is being murdered on the Golden Gate Bridge, and wouldn’t you just know that her fantasies are soon becoming real? William Wright is our leading man, and Otto Kruger, who surprisingly isn’t playing a Nazi agent, is the real male star of the show in this short, fun movie.
Cinematography is by George Meehan, who was all over the Columbia lot in those days (showing how fast they shot shorts and B-movies); he averaged more than a feature a month in 1945, plus an array of comedy shorts.
(65 min. / B&W / 1.37:1)
Also on the Program
Cartoonwise it's the 1944 Looney Tunes favorite Little Red Riding Rabbit; our TravelTalks affords us Glimpses of Peru; on the Vitaphone bandstand this week is Morrah Minevitch and his Harmonica School; plus Death on the Dial in the seventh suspense-soaked episode of The Master Key.
And much, much more!
A lost silent classic found, more film noir, and a delightful foreign film are all on deck for future weeks. Don't touch that dial (if we had a dial).
ESCAPE IN THE FOG
(1945) Dir. Budd Boetticher
