STRANGE IMPERSONATION
1944, Films Around the World, 68 min, USA, Dir: Anthony Mann

This kooky and claustrophobic crime/sci-fi/soap opera hybrid crams about three movies’ worth of plot into its brief running time: chemical experiments, insurance scams, romantic triangles, plastic surgery - it’s a bizarre and berserk funhouse ride, featuring Brenda Marshall, William Gargan and sexy Hillary Brooke. One of director Mann’s more stylish, inventive (and nutty) B’s, paving the way for his ascension to A-list assignments and eventual auteur status.
