The Dark Man

A forgery suspect fallen on hard times murders a black marketeer for a wad of pound notes, and the cabdriver who took him there, and nearly does in a repertory actress (in Night Alone and Hamlet) who is a very casual witness, Scotland Yard has an Inspector on the case.

A seaside town with a nearby Army installation for gunnery practice is the site of Dell’s very astute direction, his genius is above all evident at “the end of the bay” on a day of sun and clouds, a perfect representation, the very able cinematography has many a perception as fresh and authentic.

Reviewed by H.H.T. of the New York Times with Train of Events (dirs. Cole, Crichton, Dearden), “neither has much merit.”
