Rated NR · 71 minutes · 1946
Joseph H. Lewis is best known for his burning, violent film noir Gun Crazy, but this 1946 production is equally impressive in a different mode—that of moody, hallucinatory expressionism. Steven Geray, a little gray mouse of a Paris detective, is sent to the provinces to solve a series of mysterious murders; there are flashbacks, fogs, and mirrors, expressively arranged in a ghostly mise-en-scene. It's astonishing to see this kind of craft and creativity going into a B movie that had no chance of being taken seriously by the critics of the time; Lewis's work here is all for his own satisfaction, and it's superb. With Micheline Cheirel and Eugene Borden.
