Example text

But although the serial format has vanished, the aura of menace, brutality, and deception that informed the creation of these films persists to the present day, particularly in the Star Wars and Indiana Jones films which are, in fact, much more physically ambitious ‘serials’ with commensurately larger budgets. The central conceit of being unable to account for one’s own actions informs numerous 1940s noirs, a period when psychoanalysis was just coming into vogue. Such films as Joseph H. Lewis’s So Dark the Night (1946), in which French homicide detective Henri Cassin (Stephen Geray) is unaware that he is the murderer he seeks for a particularly vicious strangulation killing, speak to the essential mystery of the human psyche, capable of blocking itself off from interior knowledge that it finds disturbing or contradictory.

Against such a backdrop of unrelenting fatalism and despair, there is no defense. One either capitulates, or is dragged under the wheels of a new social order in which everything and everyone is suspect. Jack Bernhard’s Decoy (1946) is an even more vicious and cynical film, which for some reason almost slipped between the cracks of film history. Produced by Monogram Pictures, the film is cheap in every respect, but is more than salvaged by the remarkable performance of British actress Jean Gillie as the psychopathic Margot Shelby.

Anthony Mann, who labored as a director for PRC, Republic, and Eagle Lion on such bizarre ‘B’ noirs as the hallucinatory Strange Impersonation (1946), Railroaded (1947), T-Men (1948), and The Great Flamarion (1945), created one of his most enduring visions of urban hell in Raw Deal. This featured second-string leading man Dennis O’Keefe as Joe Sullivan, a gangster whose plans for revenge against his double-crossing associates are complicated when he falls in love with Ann Martin (Marsha Hunt), and inducts her into his world of violence and mayhem.
