DIRECTOR: JOSEPH H. LEWIS

CAST: STEVEN GERAY

Blessed with one of the most noir titles in the history of film noir, Lewis’s tight, tense thriller concerns a Paris police detective, Henri Cassin (Steven Geray), whose vacation becomes rather less relaxing when he starts tracking the psychopathic killer who’s terrorizing the countryside around where Cassin is staying. Freud meets hard-boiled fiction in Lewis’s cult classic, with Burnett Guffey’s canted camerawork matching the contortions that its protagonist’s mind is subjected to, for as Cassin grows closer to his quarry, he can’t help but notice that the description of the killer is awfully familiar...
