Part of BAMcinématek series Overdue
Directed by John Reinhardt | 1947

With Lee Tracy, Don Castle, Julie Bishop, Anabel Shaw, Douglas Walton

Short, sharp, and narrated in flashback from a car flooding with water, this noir from low-budget, B-movie pioneer Monogram Pictures stars Lee Tracy as a rampaging newspaper editor who hires a private investigator (Don Castle) for protection from a gang boss. Featuring backstabbing, tipsy widows, disputed newspaper ownership, and spittin’ rivets, this film is based on a short story by hardboiled pulp writer Raoul Whitfield. “Reinhardt’s films are worth seeking out, both for a formal mastery that suggests he may have taken a place as a noir stylist beside Anthony Mann and Joseph H. Lewis if his career had taken a more conventional path, and for a delicate sensibility that combines an agonizing awareness of the evils afoot in the world with a sincere and tender appreciation of small acts of kindness” (Dave Kehr).
