I guess if you're a fan of sodium pentathol you'll like this film. For the rest of us it's a pretty uninspired noir. A couple of the character actors do good work, like H.B. Warner as a mental patient who uses Chopin recordings to institutionally survive, and Frank Jencks as a chatty drunk, but the three leads range from over the top (Robert Taylor) to anemic (Herbert Marshall) to merely ok (Audrey Totter.) And Curtis Bernhardt's direction is way too slow for a noir, (although the cinematography's pretty good.) Give it a C. P.S. I must confess that, due to his being such a complete and utter bastard in real life, (ten times worse than John Wayne) unless Robert Taylor's in a good film, I really find the guy hard to take.
High Wall is terrific!
Very well done film noir, a hidden gem with terrific Robert Taylor as a former bomber pilot, falsely accused murderer and mental patient who recovers. Excellent Herbert Marshall and Audrey Totter. Highly recommend.
Film noir at its best!
This really is a forgotten minor classic, starring the best Robert Taylor you're ever likely to see.
High Wall-Please release this on DVD
I had the opportunity to see this movie on TCM and I was hooked!!!!This is such a good movie Conflict with Humphrey Bogart.
Effective use of B & W
It isn't until one sees a movie such as this that one realizes that use of B&W can so effectively add to the overall mood of a film. It is understated but effective.The film also shows how effective Robert Taylor could be in a small role, in contrast to the wide-ranging films that he was to go on and star in.
This is a very good Robert Taylor and Auderey Totter film and should be released on DVD.
