(1946) dir Robert Siodmak w/Lancaster, Ava Gardner, Edmond O’Brien, Albert Dekker [103 min; 35mm]
Lancaster’s film debut was as “The Swede,” a washed-up smalltime hood who has fallen prey to femme fatale Ava Gardner. The film begins with Lancaster being gunned down with his sorry tale told in flashback as his death is investigated.
