Movie Diary 7/2/2014

Five Steps to Danger (Henry S. Kesler, 1957). A peculiar combination of noir and Red-tinted espionage, with Ruth Roman racing across the Southwest to deliver a whatsis and Sterling Hayden tagging along for the ride. It’s far-fetched, but it does scoot right along. Also has some good cars, motel rooms, and gas stations. I watched pretty closely, but I don’t know what the five steps have to do with anything.

  1. I assume this is the same Henry Kesler who assisted in some capacity on In a Lonely Place a few years earlier. His greatest assist may have been to share his name with the character who–in the adaptation if not the novel–turned out to be the murderer. Oh … spoiler?
