  • The Black Book (1949)

    I have no idea why Bob Cummings would have wanted to be in this film. I found it unwatchable and less like a movie than a series of artsy static shots joined together by bleak imagery, like people getting tortured and shot in the mouth. It has a fairly short running time (but not short enough) but that's because there is nothing remotely interesting about the characters or the movie unless you are an avid student of French history.

    Definitely worth watching. The chase scene was not far-fetched.For those who have an opportunity to see this movie would probably enjoy the 1939 movie Mortal Storm.

  • Another Film That's In Dire Need Of Restoration...

    With in your face (avant garde) direction and minimalistic photography and fine performances from Cummings(even in this "dark" film Bob still manages a wise crack or two) & Basehart and the strinkingly beautiful Arlene Dahl this film, like so many others, deserves to be seen at it's best!
