BLACK DICE (1951) Jack LaRue, Linden Travers, Lili Molnar, Hugh McDermott. Travers is a society dame who is kidnapped by two small-time thugs. LaRue gives the best portrayal of his life as a bigtime gangster who owns the Black Dice Club, a classy spot filled with rich suckers, showgirls, and illicit types. When his boys hear of Travers’ kidnapping, they swoop in and nab the girl for themselves. But something unexpected occurs, Travers, who admires LaRue’s macho style, melts his gangster heart and they fall for each other.  What follows is one of the best crime movies of the ‘40s, filled with tough talk, ruthless gangsters, sexy dames, classy musical numbers, and taut action.  Released in the UK in ‘48 as No Orchids for Miss Blanndish; then released state-side in ‘51 as Black Dice. LaRue shows he was in the same class as Bogart, Cagney, etc. From 16mm.  PLUS:  NIGHTBEAT (1947) Ronald Howard, Maxwell Reed, Hector Ross, Anne Crawford.  In this superb film noir gem, Ross and Howard play young men who join the police force.  Ross succeeds; Howard fails.  Howard ends up on the wrong side of the law when he falls in with a shady nightclub owner, brilliantly played by Reed.  Falling into the middle of this are two dames—one sweet and innocent (Crawford); the other a femme fatale (Norden), the latter with an insatiable taste for money, men, and sex.  Norden almost steals the show with her high octane, sultry performance.  This forgotten gem boasts a terrific script and top-notch acting.  35mm.
