USA 1943

 

Ex-Spanish Civil War POW Kit McKitrick (John Garfield) is investigating the death of his childhood pal. But the brutality he endured at the hands of his fascist captors has left more then physical scars. Maureen O’Hara, playing an elusive beauty who knows more then she’s telling, matches her cool elegance with Garfield’s electric intensity in this highly regarded psychological thriller. As Kit careens from swank Manhattan soirees to covert Nazi spy nests, he discovers if he does have the guts to confront men who lie, torture and murder in the service of Germany’s crazed Führer.

Comments

An average war-time film noir with an excellent performance by John Garfield gets a DVD-R treatment from Warner as part of their Archive Collection. The transfer is spotty at best. There is minimal chroma evident as seen on capture 4, but more often there are marks and specks.

At least the black and white transfer is progressive and has good contrast. The audio is adequate, but there are no extras, however the trailer is available on TCM web page HERE.
