The Perfect Crime, and the Almost Perfect Getaway

During the first days of motion pictures the stories explored every emotion and custom of men and women, but in 1934 the Hays Office began censoring what could and could not be done in a movie. Most of the stories were very tame with a feel-good ending. Then World War Two dominated the thoughts of the world, and movies were either be-happy, don’t worry, or gritty military stories. Then in 1945 the war ended and creators of great movies had a chance to explore the shady side of the street. Film Noir was born.

Every good film noir movie has a couple of things that make it noir . . . first a man who thinks that the regular rules of law don't apply to him . . . he is smarter than the police and all of the powers that be. He can be a good man turned bad, or a born-to-be-bad guy spreading his wings. In addition to the bad guy, there is usually a bad girl, and these two dominate the story. Sure, the good guys will win in the end, after all, the Hays Office was still setting the rules, but the dark side of the street could be exposed with glorious dark shadows dominating the screen, for all to see and enjoy for an exciting hour or so.

Our bad girl in this noir thriller is actor Felicia Farr, born in New York, educated at Penn State University, and five years after this movie she would marry legendary actor Jack Lemmon. Our bad guy in this story is Mark Stevens, who made a good living in the movies, but never became a super-star.

It is usually the kiss of death when a movie is produced, directed, and acted by the same person, but Mark Stevens directed, produced, and starred in this one, and if I do have to say so myself, he did a bang-up job of all three. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
