TRY AND GET ME
1951, Film Noir Foundation, 91 min, USA, Dir: Cy Endfield

The true story of a shocking 1934 kidnapping and murder in San Jose provided the inspiration for one of the most compelling—and unjustly neglected—masterpieces of film noir. Ex-GI Howard Tyler (Frank Lovejoy), struggling to support his family, meets flashy hoodlum Jerry Slocum (Lloyd Bridges), who eases the gullible Howard into a lucrative life of crime. Their escapade turns dark and desperate when Jerry takes hostage the son of a wealthy local businessman. One of the last films made in the U.S. by blacklisted writer/director Cy Endfield before he relocated to England, TRY AND GET ME (originally released as THE SOUND OF FURY) has been restored by the Film Noir Foundation so that it may be experienced in its original form by future generations and assume its rightful status as one of the great films of its era. NOT ON DVD!


HELL DRIVERS
1957, Park Circus, 101 min, UK, Dir: Cy Endfield

An ex-con (Stanley Baker) trying to go straight takes a job driving for a corrupt trucking company, where the bosses pit the drivers against each other in a dangerous competition that leads to higher profits and ... death! Peggy Cummins is the saucy secretary who flirts her way through an array of up-and-coming stars. A gear-grinding masterpiece!
