JOHNNY O’CLOCK
1946, Sony Repertory, 85 min, USA, Dir: Robert Rossen

JOHNNY'S NO GOOD...but that's how women want him! Innocent Nancy Hobson (Evelyn Keyes) ventures to the nasty noir city when her sister winds up dead. She’s soon up to her chin in a tangle of gamblers, gangsters and surly cops - not to mention falling under the spell of charismatic casino owner Johnny O’Clock (Dick Powell, in his signature role). Scribe Robert Rossen’s directorial debut as a director offers the full range of noir iconography, and is played to the hilt by a colorful cast, featuring Lee J. Cobb, Ellen Drew, Nina Foch and Thomas Mitchell. NOT ON DVD


JOHNNY ALLEGRO
1949, Sony Repertory, 81 min, USA, Dir: Ted Tetzlaff

In this underrated George Raft vehicle, the actor plays the title reformed crook, sent undercover to a Caribbean island hiding American gangsters. (Scripters Karen De Wolff and Guy Endore must have vacationed in Havana!) Allegro’s job: Take down Mr. Big (George Macready). Once Mrs. Big (Nina Foch) falls for Raft, things spiral into MOST DANGEROUS GAME territory, with Macready breaking out his bow and arrows! Directed by Ted Tetzlaff (THE WINDOW). NOT ON DVD


Screening formats: 35mm | No passes accepted.
