  • Mistake in Hollow Triumph aka The Scar

    look for the mistake on the location of Henreid's facial scar....He puts his scar on the left cheek and the next morning it's on his right cheek.

  • An unexpected gem

    I was ironing and needed to be distracted, so I began watching "Hollow Triumph". Paul Henreid playing a villlain was only the first surprise. The improbable plot worked well; as it unfolded, irony upon irony brought our overconfident protagonist closer to his end. Joan Bennett, as the jaded but straightforward girlfriend, also played against type, another surprise. An affecting moment is the small scene with the charlwoman, who is the only one to notice the misplaced scar. Despite his hurry, John stops a moment, evidently reflecting on the fact that this modest soul really LOOKS at people, unlike others who take only superficial notice. A small but significant commentary. The acting, cinematography and pace of this film are outstanding and I highly recommend it. You don't even have to be ironing.

  • Henreid produces and star's in this noir!

    Perhaps because of the "Hungary connection" Henreid has Sekely direct this film but I believe the story & the film would have been better served if a Billy Wilder for instance could have been brought in to help Henreid develop the screenplay to it's fullest especially, when Joan Bennett is your co-star.Right, Edward G.

    This was a wonderful, little known film noir featuring what may be the best work of his career for Paul Henreid and the warm, presence of Joan Bennett at her best. John Alton's cinematography is also one of the very best of his distinguished career. The score, One thing though--The TCM article about this movie ascribes the quote below to Henreid's character. It is Bennett who delivers the line with heartfelt conviction:"It's a bitter little world full of sad surprises, and you don't let anyone hurt you."Thank you for broadcasting this great little gem.
