1949 Directed by King Vidor

"What a dump!" That's the classic line delivered by
Bette Davis at the halfway point of Beyond the Forest,
her final Warner Bros. effort of the 1940s. Some Davis
devotees feel as though this vituperative utterance is
the high point of an otherwise turgid melodrama;
others consider the line a succinct assessment of the

Review by Jason Seaver

The Big Clock isn't quite cynical enough to be a true film noir, and seems to lack the
malice necessary to be a truly great thriller, but it's got a clever set-up for a game of cat

George Stroud (Ray Milland) is the true crime-magazine editor with a knack for finding
fugitives, and Pauline York (Rita Johnson) is Janoth's mistress whom he murders in a fit

Review by Brent Paton

Stylish mystery with good story and lots of drinking. Harry Morgan at his most menacing.

Review by I_Love_LUCy
