LOOPHOLE
1954, Allied Artists [Warner Bros.], 80 min, USA, Dir: Harold D. Shuster

One of the rarest films of the original noir era, this tidy tale of unjust persecution plays like a B-movie version of Les Miserables. An innocent bank clerk (Barry Sullivan), made the fall guy in an embezzlement scheme, is pursued to the brink of insanity by a scarily righteous insurance investigator (merciless Charles McGraw, in a signature performance). “On the hot spot! … With a lethal blonde and a cold-blooded cop!” Not on DVD!


KISS TOMORROW GOODBYE
1950, Warner Bros., 102 min, USA, Dir: Gordon Douglas

While not as famous as Jimmy Cagney’s huge hit WHITE HEAT (made the previous year), this brutal, hard-as-nails adaptation of Horace McCoy’s superb novel is one of the best crime films of the noir era. A handful of battered survivors recount in court the violent saga of criminal Ralph Cotter, from his prison breakout to his fateful double-dealings with women (Barbara Payton and Helena Carter, both terrific). Tremendously tough direction by Gordon Douglas, featuring an amazing crew of noir tough guys. “The whole blistering story of the crimson-stained career of Ralph Cotter, thug with a heart… of ice!” Not on DVD!
