Description by OLDIES.com:

A man is dragged into a violent underworld when he returns a lost wallet and discovers that the owner is a crime lord. The kingpin, impressed by Scotty's naive honesty, hires him as a chauffeur. Troubled by the sadistic treatment the tyrant visits upon his beautiful wife, the innocent man succumbs to her appeals for help, and organizes an escape plan. The getaway is foiled when she is brutally stabbed and Scotty finds himself framed for the murder. Realizing that he is at the mercy of a diabolic scheme hatched by the crime boss and his insidious henchman (Peter Lorre), Scotty prepares to fight for his life. The twists and turns of the final sequence create a staggering and artful finale to this Film Noir thriller.

Released to critical acclaim and long renowned as a cult classic, The Chase features some of cinema's finest talents. Superior performances from Hitchcock-regulars Robert Cummings and Peter Lorre favor this complex, sophisticated story. Producer Seymour Nebenzal first made a name for himself producing Fritz Lang's M and story writer Cornell Woolrich also penned such masterpieces as Rear Window and Fear in the Night.

Product Description:

A chauffeur falls in love with the boss's wife but the boss is a mafioso and the two elope to Cuba with hitmen on their trail.

Rating 3.0 You'll be surprised Movie Lover: from Middle Village, NY US -- December, 10, 2009

Three-quarters of the way through this movie, you'll be surprised by an unexpected development. The ending, however, may disappoint you and will lwave at least one big questyion unanswered.


Rating 4.5 The Chase Movie Lover: from Cambridge, OH US -- October, 4, 2007

I had no idea Robert Cummings was such a good actor. Steve Cochran and Peter Lorre make a very interesting couple of hoods, Lorre especially. A wonderful script that pulls the rug out from under you. Very unusual for the 1940's. Definitely a keeper.


Rating 5.0 The Chase Movie Lover: from New York, NY US -- March, 27, 2007

Years and years ahead of its time. Gripping all the way and you will NOT know what is really happening even though you think you do. Not till the astounding ending anyway. You must see this or you will lack a key Noir experience. Perfect post war paranoia and fear.


Rating 5.0 Required Noir Viewing Movie Lover: from Columbus, OH US -- January, 13, 2005

A certifiable classic. Highly recommended. From the acting to the (surprising) story-line to the cinematography, this movie is simply wonderful! If you love mysteries, or just love Peter Lorre, you have to see this film.
