DEAD RECKONING
1947, Sony Repertory, 100 min, Dir: John Cromwell

Colonel Humphrey Bogart knows something’s fishy when his best friend, Sergeant Johnny Drake (William Prince), jumps off his train rather than continue on his way to receive a much-publicized Medal of Honor. Bogart follows his trail to Gulf City, only to find his pal burnt to a crisp on a morgue slab. Things can only go downhill from there. Before long, other bodies pile up, and Bogart does some fancy footwork to keep out of a murder frame. The twisted clues lead to Johnny’s bewitching sweetheart Cora (Lizabeth Scott), smooth casino operator Martinelli (Morris Carnovsky) and sadistic thug Krause (Marvin Miller). A passel of contradictory stories point to a number of guilty parties, and Bogart has to think fast to figure out who he can trust - or he may end up like his dead buddy.

KEY WITNESS
1947, Sony Repertory, 67 min, Dir: Ross Lederman

After winning a bundle at the track, inventor Milton Higby (John Beal) throws a party; when one of the guests is discovered dead the next morning, he doesn’t stick around to explain. As Higby tries to stay one step ahead of the cops, he stumbles upon another murder victim and assumes the man’s identity.
