CRACK UP

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

Double Feature with ACT OF VIOLENCE

(1946) dir Irving Reis w/Pat O’Brien, Claire Trevor, Herbert Marshall, Ray Collins [93 min; 35mm]
O’Brien plays a forgery expert working for the Metropolitan Museum of Art. One night, after apparently being drunk on the job, he is suspended from his job. His superiors say he was sloshed, but O’Brien insists that he was in a train accident… an accident the police say never happened! Is he cracking up or the victim of foul play? Trevor strays from her femme fatale image as the heroine in this thriller filled with key noir themes: paranoia, art, conspiracy and, of course, amnesia.
