(aka 'Rough Sketch')

directed by John Huston
USA 1949

 

  China Valdes (Jennifer Jones) joins the Cuban underground after her brother is killed by the chief of the secret police, Ariete. She meets and falls in love with American expatriate Tony Fenner (John Garfield). Tony develops a plan to tunnel under the city's cemetery to a plot owned by a high official, assassinate him, and blow up the whole Cuban hierarchy at the ensuing state funeral. Together with a band of dedicated revolutionaries, they begin digging. A real Huston gem... a totally buried classic film.

Comments:

Although a meager offering from Columbia Tri-Star, the image is very good. Super black levels from a very clean print. Quite a lot of grain showing which is a good sign that no excessive manipulations have occurred... and I don't see any chroma or moireing either. Those yellow subtitles will be the death of me yet, and there are no extras worth discussing. A ho-hum effort on the package, but at least the film is intact and Jen Jones looks as radiant as ever.  out of
