Containing Multitudes Since 2004
An utterly forgotten noir masterpiece that shouldn't be. Why hasn't Richard Baseheart received credit where credit is due. He's magnificent. I also think he elevates The House on Telegraph Hill into an exemplary noir. Thanks, Tom for resurrecting the hard to find but much admired Barbara Bel Geddes too.
My favorite Basehart moment is when he's removing the bullet via self-surgery in "He Walked By Night" - excruciating to watch, and one of the finest pieces of acting ever.
