HIGH TIDE
1947, Film Noir Foundation, 74 min, USA, Dir: John Reinhardt

A crusading newspaper editor (Lee Tracy) gets more than he bargained for when he hires a private dick (Don Castle) to protect him from riled-up gangsters. Los Angeles' Union Station and Malibu figures in. With exchanges like "Can I take you to dinner sometime?" "Sure, the second Thursday of next week," this film is as witty and moody as any B-noir of the era. NOT ON DVD!
