1. It was one of those Noir Detective thrillers based on someone’s probably pulp fiction story. The Mubi screening was said to be a fully restored version previously seen only in damaged bits and pieces. I thought the actress playing the mother resembled Ann Hathaway. Maybe she was Anne Hathaway’s mother. Otherwise all B actors you wouldn’t know. So in a sense, an alcoholic ex-cop trying to find his kidnapped son. Maybe not Joe Friday. Maybe the first time a lead character said, “It’s only a flesh wound.”
