WHIPLASH
1948, Warner Bros., 91 min, USA, Dir: Lewis Seiler

Mix OUT OF THE PAST with BODY AND SOUL and what do you get? An artist who falls for a mystery woman, pursues her to the Big Apple, and ends up fighting for the middleweight championship! Pugnacious Dane Clark is artist/boxer Mike Angelo (get it?), Alexis Smith is his sexy siren, Eve Arden the sassy girlfriend, Douglas Kennedy the scar-faced gunsel and, best of all, Zachary Scott is a sadistic, wheelchair-bound fight manager! "Whiplash" is what you'll get keeping up with the careening plot, which climaxes in a smashing finale! Not on DVD!
