Noir on the Blvd: The Big Heat (1953) (November 18)

November 18, 2018

Police Sergeant Bannion is investigating the apparent suicide of a corrupt cop, then is suddenly ordered to stop the investigation. Driven to unravel the mystery, Bannion continues probing until an explosion meant for him kills his wife. He resigns from the force and soon learns that behind it all is a powerful underworld organisation led by Mike Lagana and his cold-blooded henchman, Vince Stone.

 

“Ford’s portrayal of the homicide sergeant is honest and packs much wallop. Lang’s direction builds taut suspense, throwing unexpected, and believable, thrills at the audience.” – Variety

 

“Brutal, atmospheric, and exciting — highly recommended.” – Chicago Reader

 

“That’s the beauty of Lang’s moral ambidexterity. He tells the story of a heroic cop, while using it to mask another story, so much darker, beneath.” – Roger Ebert
