THE 3RD VOICE
(d. Hubert Cornfield, 20th Century-Fox, 1960, 80 min.) RARITY! NOT ON DVD!
This sensational, brain-teasing murder yarn (based on the novel All the Way by Charles Williams) features noir stalwart Edmond O'Brien as an anonymous chump hired by scheming secretary Laraine Day to kill her boss/lover . . . and assume his identity at a Mexican fishing resort. The appearance of sexy songbird Julie London complicates matters, of course. Featuring breathtaking black-and-white Cinemascope cinematography by Ernest Haller.

THE FACE BEHIND THE MASK
(d. Robert Florey, Columbia, 1941, 69 min.) RARITY! NOT ON DVD!
Peter Lorre stars as an immigrant watchmaker, horribly disfigured in a fire, whose despair and alienation lead him into a life of crime. A friendship with a young blind woman (Evelyn Keyes) offers him a shot at love and redemption. But . . . this is a noir film festival. Screenplay by Paul Jarrico.
