Hard-hitting, snappy dialogue
Engrossing British noir with great characters, excellent dialogue, and lots of potent visuals. Narcy is the ideal villain: heartless, hard-boiled, well-dressed, and very funny. This movie has plenty of dark moments, and the ending is not Hollywood, but you care enough about the characters that you hope for a happy ending after the closing credits.
Good British Movie
I really enjoyed this movie. Great acting and cinematography.
Good British flick w/twists
There are a few disconcerting points in this film but all in all it is worth a look I laughed at the APB the police put out on Trevor Howard when he escapes prison, as it is for a man 27 years of age. Howard was 35 and looked 50! This is post-WWII and, as with all Brit flicks of the time, it brought the war into the story; however, this is essentially a gangster film. One should note Sally Gray in this film, as she is stunningly beautiful and a good actress. Too bad she refused to come to the US to make films, as I believe she would have been a big star. In one music hall routine in this film, she could have been the body double for Veronica Lake!

*** Entertaining, British gangster flick.
Coincidence with 'The Count of Monte Cristo'?
- Michael Helwick
It seems more than a coincidence that a man named "Alberto Cavalcanti" chose to direct a movie whose theme parallels that of "The Count of Monte Cristo." After all, "Andrea Cavalcanti" is the alias that the Count of Monte Cristo chooses to give to his pawn Benedetto, who is in reality the illegitimate son of the prosecutor de Villefort and Baroness Danglars.
They Made Me a Fugitive
- Bruce C
You'll be glued to your seat with this thrilling suspense filled film. Classically British with superb camera work in old London gives the "gangster element," greater intrigue. Housed within a funerary setting addsto the dramatic impression of the concealing nature of the "bad guys." Visual representation that Trevor Howard was actually young at one time is almost alarming, but true. Its not the Lavender Hill Mob, withan all star cast, yet its very, very clever and is played out charismatically to the hilt. A must see.
they made me a fugitive (1948)
Trevor Howard is always watchable, Susan Gray is a stunner. Totally entertaining and suspenseful--with great b&w cinematography. Snappy dialogue--a hoot. An ending of the Hickcockian variety. We loved it.
