Movie Diary 4/13/2016

The Crooked Way (Robert Florey, 1949). As Johnny Carson used to say, they can’t all be gems. This noir nugget has John Payne as an amnesiac war veteran returning to L.A. and immediately spotted by the criminals he used to run with. Not a lot of logic on display, but many examples of the genius of cinematographer John Alton, who creates some incredible set-ups. Co-starring Ellen Drew and – Sonny Tufts?!?
