LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: Ted Tetzlaff. George Raft, Pat O'Brien, Ella Raines, Jim Backus, Roland Winters. Heavy-handed crime drama-romance lacks only logic, understandable character motivation, pace, and excitement. L.A. bail bondsman Raft carries a torch for the wife (Raines) of one of his clients; murder ensues.

Vince Kane has an affinity for dangerous professions. Once he was a cop. Now he's making a lot more dough but facing just as much trouble as a bail bondsman. His latest client,... more

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: Richard Fleischer. William Lundigan, Dorothy Patrick, Jeff Corey, Nestor Paiva, Charles D. Brown, Paul Guilfoyle. Solid little film noir about police manhunt for self-righteous psychopathic killer called The Judge. Packs style and substance into just 59 minutes.

'This is the film that, above all, increased my knowledge of the trade. I learned how to organize a film,' director Richard Fleischer said about Follow Me Quietly. The filmmaker... more

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: John Sturges. Ricardo Montalban, Sally Forrest, Bruce Bennett, Elsa Lanchester, Marshall Thompson, Jan Sterling, Eamon Ryan, Betsy Blair. The skeleton of a murdered B girl is studied by Cape Cod cop Montalban and Harvard doctor Bennett in an early movie depiction of forensic science. Intelligent, realistic mystery is well acted and engrossing, if slow paced.

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: Andre De Toth. Sterling Hayden, Gene Nelson, Phyllis Kirk, Ted de Corsia, Charles Buchinsky (Bronson), Jay Novello, James Bell, Dub Taylor, Timothy Carey. Neat little B picture about some escaped cons who try to involve a former prisonmate (who's now gone straight) in their latest heist. Actuality-style filming on L.A. locations gives this an extra boost.

D: Fritz Lang. Dana Andrews, Ida Lupino, Rhonda Fleming, George Sanders, Vincent Price, Thomas Mitchell, Sally Forrest, Howard Duff, James Craig, John Barrymore, Jr., Mae Marsh. Veteran cast and intertwining storylines keep interest in account of newspaper reporters and police on the track of a berserk killer.

D: Roy Rowland. Van Johnson, Arlene Dahl, Gloria DeHaven, Tom Drake, Leon Ames, John McIntire, Donald Woods, Norman Lloyd, Jerome Cowan. Bland, talky film noir in which hard-boiled L.A. cop Johnson sets out to solve the murder of his ex-partner, who might have been on the take.

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: Jules Dassin. Barry Fitzgerald, Howard Duff, Don Taylor, Dorothy Hart, Ted de Corsia, House Jameson, Frank Conroy, David Opatoshu. Time (and decades of TV cop shows) have dulled the edge of this once-trendsetting crime drama, produced by columnist Mark Hellinger on the streets of N.Y.C., following the investigation of a murder case step by step. Fitzgerald is still first-rate, cast against type as the detective in charge, and the cast is peppered with soon-to-be-familiar character actors (Arthur O'Connell, Paul Ford, James Gregory, Celia Adler, et al.). Cinematographer William Daniels and editor Paul Weatherwax won Oscars for their work. Screenplay by Albert Maltz and Malvin Wald. Later a TV series.

The story is based on facts about a young woman who is brutally murdered in the streets of New York City and the subsequent manhunt for her killer, who eventually leads the police to... more

D: Joseph (H) Lewis. Cornel Wilde, Jean Wallace, Brian Donlevy, Richard Conte, Lee Van Cleef, Robert Middleton, Earl Holliman, Helen Walker. Raw, violent film noir about persistent cop Wilde going up against cunning, sadistic racketeer Conte. A cult item, stylishly directed; Donlevy's demise is a highlight.

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: Vittorio De Sica. Sophia Loren, Raf Vallone, Eleanora Brown, Jean-Paul Belmondo. Loren deservedly won Oscar for heart- rending portrayal of Italian mother who, along with young daughter, is raped by Allied Moroccan soldiers during WW2. How they survive is an intensely moving story. Screenplay by Cesare Zavattini from an Alberto Moravia novel. Loren remade this in 1989 as a two-part Italian TVM.
