30 hand picked films. A new one every day
**1/2. Screenplay by Dashiell Hammett. Some historical interest can be found here but the directing is stagy. Paul Lukas won the 1944 Academy award in the Best Actor in a Leading Role category for his performance. Almost already forgotten.
Dreary, talky, stagy and nearly unwatchable wartime propagandaish film with stilted script by Lillian Hellman and relentlessly preachy music by Max Steiner.
