FORCE OF EVIL
One of the most distinctive works of the original noir era, Abraham Polonsky's directorial debut is an exposé of the New York numbers racket and a riveting tale of a fallen man's search for his soul (John Garfield, in one of his best roles). Stylized art direction complements vivid New York location footage. Featuring an evocative score by David Raksin and memorable performances by Thomas Gomez, Marie Windsor and Roy Roberts, the film is innovative and superlative in every respect. (Note courtesy of Noir City.) DIR/SCR Abraham Polonsky; SCR Ira Wolfert, from his novel; PROD Bob Roberts. U.S., 1948, b&w, 79 min. NOT RATED
