Crime drama
Chicago newspaperman James Stewart investigates a murder in this 1948 feature. Director Henry Hathaway specialized in these true-life dramas in the late 40s and early 50s, filming as much as possible on the actual locations. His quiet, functional camera style suggests some of the classic simplicity of Hawks, although his skills never developed beyond those of a superior storyteller. Like most of his work, Northside is convincing, engaging, and ultimately forgettable. With Lee J. Cobb, Helen Walker, and Betty Garde; photographed by Joe MacDonald.
