MINISTRY OF FEAR

75 Years of Film Noir, Part 4: Prime Noir of the 1940s

Double Feature with THE BIG CLOCK

(1945) dir Fritz Lang w/Ray Milland, Marjorie Reynolds, Carl Esmond, Hillary Brooke, Dan Duryea [86 min; 35mm]
During WWII, Stephen Neale (Milland) stops at a fair on his way to London and wins a cake by correctly guessing its weight. For some reason, it seems that a lot of other people want to get their hands on that cake too and Neale finds himself embroiled with a ring of Nazi spies, a beautiful woman, and one very sinister tailor.
