THE NAKED CITY
1948, Janus Films, 96 min, USA, Dir: Jules Dassin

A landmark crime movie, producer Mark Hellinger's hardboiled tribute to his beloved Big Apple peels away all the stylistic melodramatics of noir to present Hollywood's first true policier. The scrupulously researched script by Malvin Wald and vivid location photography by William Daniels (an Oscar winner) combined to make this one of the most influential Hollywood films of the 1940s. With Barry Fitzgerald, Howard Duff, Don Taylor, Dorothy Hart and a very scary Ted de Corsia.

HARDLY A CRIMINAL
APENAS UN DELINCUENTE
1949, Film Noir Foundation, 88 min, Argentina, Dir: Hugo Fregonese

The best Argentine noir of the 1940s is an audacious blending of NAKED CITY and BRUTE FORCE, telling the tale of a clever bank clerk (Jorge Salcedo) who embezzles money and tries to get caught, since a loophole in the Argentine justice system will free him after six years in stir - when he intends to reclaim his stashed loot. Part caper, part prison picture, it earned Argentinean Hugo Fregonese a career in Hollywood. Noir chiaroscuro mixed with semi-documentary “neo-realism” presents an evocative vision of mid-century Buenos Aires, the Paris of the southern hemisphere.
