NOIR CITY 20th Century-Fox Film Noir -- HANGOVER SQUARE / DANGEROUS CROSSING
(d. John Brahm, 20th Century-Fox, 1945, 77 min.)
Laird Cregar, one of the most memorable film actors of the 1940s, makes his final screen appearance (he died at 29 years of age!) in this stark and haunting tale of a Victorian-era composer driven by the sounds in his head to create masterful concertos--and beautiful corpses. New to DVD, but there's nothing like seeing Joseph LaShelle's stunning cinematography on this massive scale, or hearing Bernard Herrmanns thrilling "Concerto Macabre" through majestic theater speakers.
(d. Joseph M. Newman, 20th Century-Fox, 1953, 75 min.)
Legendary "locked room" mystery writer John Dickson Carr (on whose novel this film is based) doesn't exactly define noir . . . but we're thrilled by any chance to bring actress Jeanne Crain back to the big screen. She plays a bride whose husband mysteriously vanishes from the ocean liner on which they're taking their honeymoon. Directed by Joe Newman (711 Ocean Drive, Abandoned, The Human Jungle).
