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!

CHICAGO CALLING
1952, Warner Bros., 75 min, USA, Dir: John Reinhardt

An unemployed photographer (Dan Duryea) returns to his Bunker Hill apartment the morning after a drinking binge and is greeted by his wife and daughter Nancy, who are leaving him for good. A heartbreaking, suspenseful odyssey transpires on the streets of downtown L.A. with a desperate Duryea, in one of his finest screen performances, attempting to save both his family and himself - with the help of a lively young boy in need of a father figure, who accidentally crosses paths with Duryea. Beautifully helmed by John Reinhardt with Mary Anderson, Gordon Gebert and Ross Elliott.
