Build My Gallows High

Jacques Tourneur USA, 1947

HKFanatic's rating of the film Goldenes Gift

"I think I'm in a frame...I don't know. All I can see is the frame." *The* definitive film noir. The dialogue by Daniel Mainwaring, adapting his own novel, is pure poetry; every exchange between characters a dazzling catch-and-release repartee. There's never been a noir protagonist more ruggedly handsome and unflappably cool than Robert Mitchum—and it doesn't matter, he's doomed from the start. Utterly doomed.
