THE FIVE VOLUMES OF FILM NOIR ARE AN EXCELLENT COLLECTION TO OWN.\nTHERE ARE TOO MANY FILMS AND ACTORS TO COMMENT ON.\nSUFFICE TO SAY THERE ARE STAND OUT PERFORMANCES, FOR EXAMPLE BY AUDREY TROTTER (VOL 4), THE \u2018EMERGENT\u2019 MARILYN MONROE (VOL 1), THE CULT CLASSIC \u2018DECOY\u2019 WITH JEAN GILLIE (VOL 4), ROBERT MITCHUM (VOL 3), AND ROBERT RYAN (VOL 2) ETC...\nMANY OF THE SCRIPTS ARE TIGHT AND SUSCINCT COUPLED WITH OUTSTANDING DIRECTING MAKE MOST OF THESE FILMS WORTHWHILE TO WATCH AND TO ADD TO YOUR COLLECTION.\nTHE PHENIX CITY (ALABAMA) (VOL 5) DOCU-FILM (1955), IS A CHILLINGLY HARROWING TRUE STORY WITH A BIO (FROM ACTUAL PEOPLE THAT WERE PRESENT IN C.1954) THAT PRECEEDS THE FILM.
I have seen this movie dozens of times and cannot tire of it. It is a classic! Robert Mitchum is a terrific actor and this movie fits him. I love all the older classic war movies, the actors of yesteryear will never be surpassed. This movie is a cat and mouse game which really maintains your attention. Surprisingly, a bit of human compassion is shown by Mr. Mitchum at the end, really putting a cap on this. It is exciting, well acted (Curt Jurgens is also great), and graphically rewarding.
