THE HUNTED
1948, Warner Bros., 66 min, USA, Dir: Jack Bernhard

Paroled after serving time for her part in a jewel heist, Laura Mead (Belita) returns to the city looking to reclaim her life. Waiting in the shadows is her former boyfriend, detective Johnny Saxon (Preston Foster) - who may have railroaded her into the pen out of jealousy. When Laura turns up in Johnny’s apartment, is she looking to forgive … or make good on her threat to kill the man who sent her up? A clever, ambiguous twist on the typical femme fatale story, this hypnotic Poverty Row noir from director Jack Bernhard (DECOY) has been resurrected from obscurity in a new print.
