Rating: 70/100 -- A last-act plot twist, equally likely to alienate as to fascinate, makes Arthur Ripley's obscure The Chase an especially bizarre jaunt through a nightmarish crime world. Full Review

Rating: C -- This film noir is memorable for its dark dream-like feel, as reality becomes indistinguishable from the dream sequences. Full Review

Not so ingenious and engaging as other, Chandler-esque convolutions. Full Review

Product Description:

The noir genre is known for its labyrinthine plots, but Arthur Ripley's The Chase (1946) takes the "wrong man" premise to unexpected extremes. Robert Cummings (Saboteur) stars as Chuck Scott, a down-on-his-luck veteran who lands a job as a chauffeur to a sadistic millionaire (Steve Cochran) and his reptilian bodyguard (Peter Lorre). Scott plays white knight to his boss's suffering wife, stealing her away to Havana. But when she is fatally stabbed in a crowded nightclub, Scott is accused of murder, and must flee the shadowy streets of Cuba in a reckless attempt to prove his innocence. Adapting a novel by Cornell Woolrich (author of Rear Window and The Bride Wore Black), screenwriter Philip Yordan (The Big Combo) introduced a number of twists to the original story, including a third-act surprise that transforms what might have been a conventional story of an ill-fated love into something truly mind-bending and surreal - making it one of the most unique entries in the hardboiled genre.

Bonus Features: Mastered in HD from 35mm elements preserved by UCLA Film & Television Archive, Audio commentary by filmmaker Guy Maddin (The Forbidden Room), Two radio adaptations of Cornell Woolrich's source novel, The Black Path of Fear, starring Brian Donlevy and Cary Grant, A selection of film noir trailers
