New York actor who went to Hollywood in the early 1940s and, after making a series of skillful and enjoyable B-films ("Dr. Broadway" 1942, "The Great Flamarion" 1945), eventually emerged as one of the leading directors of his day. Beginning with "Desperate" (1947), Mann directed a cycle of taut films noirs that displayed an immaculate visual style and introduced one of the director's favorite themes: the intelligent, thoughtful man who is driven to violence. Of these films, "T-Men", "Raw Deal" (both 1948) and "Border Incident" (1949) stand out.
