(1945, PRC) Tom Neal, Ann Savage, Claudia Drake, Tim Ryan, Edmund MacDonald. Directed by Edgar G. Ulmer. A film noir classic. Neal plays a down on his luck musician who thumbs a ride that leads him into an unbelievable series of circumstances that finds him implicated in murder and crime. Savage is priceless as the female psycho who holds him in the clutches of her power. Probably the best film ever made by PRC. The high desert driving scenes look great in widescreen. From 35mm.
