With Crain and Rennie where can you go wrong
I loved this movie. Just noir enough to keep it mysterious, and light enough to not be too depressing. It's a real spell binder, but you know something is up with the stewardess when she lies. Everybody else was a question mark, but when she lies, you know she's in on it somehow. Hope to see it on the lineup again soon.
Excellent Suspense Film
- Brent Rohde
"Dangerous Crossing" [1953/Fox/b&w] was a low-budget film, but a first-class spellbinder. Scenario in brief: a new bride boards an ocean liner with her husband. The ship sails. He disappears. Why? How? Did he even exist? The bride's hysteria builds...until the mystery is solved. This alarming, but riveting story was conceived by John Dickson Carr, a veteran contributor to CBS Radio's "Suspense." Director Joseph M. Newman's delayed-gratification, "march to the guillotine" pacing; the successful creation of an absolutely suffocating atmosphere of dread; the heart-rending performance of beautiful Jeanne Crain in one of her most challenging roles as the young bride; the sympathetic contributions of Michael Rennie as the ship's doctor: all distinguish "Dangerous Crossing" as a suspenseful film noir of the first order. Recommended without reservation.
This a great movie from beginning to the end. A must see !!! I hope to see it on TCM real soon.
