The Narrow Margin (1952) Review


Good
It's "protect the witness" in this brief trainbound thriller, which gives us George C. Scott-soundalike Charles McGraw as a grumpy cop protecting a mobster's wife en route to the witness stand. A mountain of obstacles -- primarily mob hitmen -- stand in the way, but it's a quick ride from Chicago to Los Angeles (at least in the movie). The film was nominated for one Oscar but is best viewed as a fun but hardly involving B-movie experience. Remade in 1990 with Gene Hackman, sans the The.

Crossfire Review


Good
Wildly overrated, Crossfire was nominated for Best Picture in its day with its presumably scandalous look at a murder carried out because its victim was Jewish and the murderer was a G.I. back from World War II, looking for kicks -- and if it rubs out a Jew, well, all the better.

Religious intolerance wasn't a new idea in the movies of the 1940s, but for some reason Crossfire has been singled out as making something unique out of this tale. I'm baffled as to why: Today the movie seems pat, with a curious setup but a drawn-out hour of investigation that looks like a schoolyard game of C.S.I. by today's standards.
