NBC News & The King of Siam
Good Night, David, – Good Night, Chet. If you were alive and watching the dinner hour television news between 1956 and 1970, you might remember that CBS television had legendary Walter Cronkite hosting its network evening news program. In an attempt to compete, NBC hired two fellows to co-host their live evening news show, one in New York, and one in Washington.
They found Chet Huntley working for CBS radio, mostly from Los Angeles, and hired him to anchor the New York part of the evening news. This movie was filmed in 1949, while Chet Huntley was still doing radio on the west coast. That year he got some extra work doing narration with his authoritative radio voice for a movie – this movie.
The other fascinating person in this classic old movie noir crime story is Yul Brynner. He is most famous for his part in the great Broadway hit, “The King and I.” Before his fame on Broadway, he dabbled in movies, and this, my friends, is his very first role in a motion picture. And what a role it is!
Yul Brynner is the bad guy in this crime tale, and he is a larger-than-life, dark and fearsome villain. In addition to the historic performances of these two famous men, we will enjoy the amazing scenes of 1949 New York City. The villains are tough as nails, but the cops are just a bit tougher in this gangster thriller.
Our movie opens shipboard, where beautiful Toni Cardell is watching from deck when an unknown man jumps overboard, and is picked up by a passing speed boat. She watches as the man is taken aboard the boat, then brutally killed and thrown overboard. We later discover that the gal is part of a crime syndicate, and she used her female assets to convince the ship’s purser to break into a crate containing pure narcotics and replace it with sand, putting the narcotics in different containers that are now on the speedboat heading to shore.
After seeing the purser brutally killed, the gal goes to the head man, villainous Yul Brynner, and demands enough money so that she can get out of town. She doesn’t want any part of murder, and now the dope smuggler has no choice but to kill her. The police start following the slimmest of clues to find the villain, and it certainly delivers a first class detective trail full of danger and deceit on the port of New York, the 1949 front door to America. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
