Movie Reviews

Excellent noir, poor transfer

"It's like watching a movie underwater. Alpha video gives us another movie we want to see with a poor, poor transfer."
ENJOYABLE NOIR THRILLER!!!

"Good mystery yarn that keeps you both involved and entertained as reporter Mary Roberts (Mary Anderson) uncovers a strange tale of murder and mayhem after interviewing a dying actress. Well plotted little suspense film has the novelty of being filmed in Old Quebec by Russian director Fedor Ozep. The locations are beautiful/striking/haunting, as is this wonderful city.
Yes, the print source is poor, but I'm not sure if any other dvd company has yet to offer a better print. This said, the ALPHA dvd is watchable and did not distract from my enjoyment of the film. Helmut Dantine is very effective as the troubled composer as is Mary Anderson as the Nancy Drew type reporter who is old enough to become involved with the male lead. Paul Lukas is exceptional as the lawyer/guiding friend who is much more than what he seems.
A very good film of it's type, low-budget noir.
This is one you'll enjoy."
