Product Details


Product Description

Everything's going right for Mike Donovan (Barry Sullivan). He came home after the war, married his gal, got a regular job as a bank teller in Hollywood, makes payments on a house in the 'burbs. But, as the voice-over narrator of this on-edge film noir notes, "One day the world's all right. The next, it's nowhere." Nice-guy Donovan's life quickly begins to unravel. He's wrongly suspected of grand larceny at the bank, hounded by a dogged insurance investigator convinced of his guilt and loses his job and home. Is there any way he can stop his free fall? As the insurance shamus determined to crush Donovan, Charles McGraw (The Narrow Margin, Armored Car Robbery) glares and growls in the style that helped make him one of the icons of noir. Dorothy Malone plays Donovan's supportive wife. And, in solid noir tradition, Mary Beth Hughes is sizzling blonde ice as an avaricious femme fatale.

WRONG MAN THEME HOLDS AUDIENCE IN ITS GRIPS May 13 2013
By jimi - Published on Amazon.com

WELL DONE NOIR USING THE WRONG MAN THEME. BARRY SULLIVAN LEADING A NORMAL LIFE AS A BANK TELLER AND THE BEAUTIFUL DOROTHY MALONE ARE CAUGHT IN A NIGHTMARE THAT SEEMS IMPOSSIBLE TO ESCAPE. EACH RABBIT HOLE HE FINDS TO BEGIN A NEW LIFE IS DESTROYED BY HIS FATE TO BE CHOSEN AS A DUPE. WELL DONE ACTING BY SULLIVAN AND MALONE AS WELL AS THE GROWLING CHARLES MCGRAW KEEP THE FILM ON THE EDGE OF ONES SEAT. IF ENJOYED HITCHCOCK'S WRONG MAN AND THE STEEL TRAP WITH JOSEPH COTTON'S STEEL TRAP THIS FILM NOIR IS A MUST.
Interesting noir effort doesn't quite make it Jan. 18 2014
By The CinemaScope Cat - Published on Amazon.com
At the end of his Friday workday, a bank teller (Barry Sullivan) finds himself short almost 50,000 dollars. An error in judgment causes him not to report the shortage until the following Monday morning. That error in judgment makes him a prime suspect in embezzling the money and when the bonding company refuses to bond him, he is fired. Convinced he stole the money, an insurance investigator (Charles McGraw) begins stalking and harassing him. Though the plot may sound like an updating of LES MISERABLES, this "B" crime film is more akin to Chandler than Victor Hugo. Its story of an innocent man who finds his life turned upside down because of a lapse in judgment is strong enough to keep one engrossed though the protagonist's own stupidity renders him somewhat unsympathetic in the end. Thankfully, bank security is now sophisticated enough to prevent such an occurrence today. Its low budget B&W, shot on location look gives it a raw realism it would have lacked with a more polished studio finish. Sadly, the final 20 minutes are rather messy and deflate the tension that the film's first hour carefully built up. Directed by Harold D. Schuster. With Dorothy Malone, wasted as Sullivan's wife, but Mary Beth Hughes makes for an excellent hard as nails femme fatale and Don Haggerty, Don Beddoe, Joanne Jordan and Richard Reeves.

The Warners Archive MOD DVDr is a nice anamorphic wide screen (1.85) transfer.
