Description by

"This is the film that, above all, increased my knowledge of the trade. I learned how to organize a film," director Richard Fleischer said about Follow Me Quietly. The filmmaker learned well: his subsequent career included the film noir gem The Narrow Margin, the family favorite 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea and the sci-fi milestone Soylent Green.

William Lundigan stars in Follow Me Quietly as a cop on the trail of an elusive serial killer who strikes when darkness and rain fall. Anthony Mann shares a credit for the story, a tale similar to his work (uncredited) on the previous year's He Walked by Night. Slip into the shadows (cinematography by The Body Snatcher's Robert de Grasse creates a sinister mood). Embrace the night. Follow into classic noir.

Product Description:

The sound of a woman pacing back and forth in the nighttime rain punctuates the opening credits for FOLLOW ME QUIETLY. She enters a bar and gets the once-over from a departing customer. However, she's not merely a streetwalker but a journalist--although Lieutenant Harry Grant (William Lundigan) clearly doesn't think that's much better. Grant and Art Collins (Jeff Corey) are on a case, pursuing the Judge, a serial killer who righteously strangles his victims. The journalist, Ann Gorman (Dorothy Patrick), is looking for a sensational story. She's in luck--the Judge strikes again.

FOLLOW ME QUIETLY is a taut, 59-minute thriller--one in a series made by director Richard Fleischer early in his career. When the police construct a dummy to help identify the Judge, Fleischer produces a moment of genuine frisson--the dummy is slumped in a chair when, unseen by the police, it suddenly moves. FOLLOW ME QUIETLY is also notable for the acerbic performance by Corey--one of the great American supporting actors (LITTLE BIG MAN, BUTCH CASSIDY AND THE SUNDANCE KID)--and for the climax, shot on location, when the police finally confront the Judge.

Plot Synopsis:

FOLLOW ME QUIETLY is unique film noir in which a psychotic killer, known as the Judge, ends the lives of those he deems unworthy. Police use information from witnesses to create a life-size mannequin of their quarry which they keep in the station; setting the stage for a daring switcheroo. The film features a great performance by William Lundigan as the obsessed detective.
