Double Feature with STREET OF CHANCE

(1942) dir Stuart Heisler w/Alan Ladd, Veronica Lake, Brian Donlevy, Bonita Granville, William Bendix [85 min; 35mm]
This violent, cynical tale of political skullduggery was the second pairing of glamorous stars Alan Ladd and Veronica Lake, who skyrocketed to fame in This Gun for Hire. Scripter Latimer brilliantly adapts the complex tale that Hammett considered his best book. Ladd is loyal “fixer” to a shady politico (Donlevy), who gets framed for murder when he turns on the mobster who got him elected. William Bendix is memorable as the thug who tries to set Ladd “straight.” A seminal film in the development of Hollywood noir, briskly and brutally directed.
