Day #22,159

Movie #2102: Double Exposure (1944, William Berke)

Breezy little comedy that suddenly turns serious when one of the main characters dies. But don't worry, they spoil the affect by adding a contrived happy ending.

Movie #2103: C-Man (1949, Joseph Lerner)

About time. Another gem from the scrapheap of forgotten movies. Dean Jagger (and his goofy voice) is a treasury agent looking for a stolen necklace. Murder and mayhem ensue. Terrific use of New York street scenes. Directorial touches that work every time and that are probably helped by the shoddy condition of the film. It's total low-life grit and the film captures it beautifully.
