at last this rare crime movie ...
18 September 2015 | by happytrigger-64-390517See all my reviews

... and not really a film noir to me. There are lacking the main elements of my favorite genre : a dark destiny in a dark city shot with dark photo with dark bad violent guys. Nothing of this in Incident, invisible for decades. You even have some comic scenes.

Remember it is a Monogram picture directed by the fast William Beaudine. The photo and the city is at the opposite of film noir, the cast is nothing explosive and the bad guys are really ordinary : no thrill at any moment. I really wouldn't call Incident a film noir, it was shot in 1948 and a lot of true masterpieces of film noir were behind.

Warren Douglas, who plays the lead, has a much more interesting career as a screen writer : "Loophole" (with Charles Mc Graw), "Finger Man" (with incredible Timothy Carey), the violent noir melodrama "The Cruel Tower" (again with Charles Mc Graw completely insane, sexy Mari Blanchard and handsome John Ericson) and more. Especially for the underrated Mark Stevens as a director : "Cry Vengeance" and "Jack Slade". Without forgetting "The Return of Jack Slade" directed by Harold Schuster with again Mari Blanchard and John Ericson.
