Hollywood must have loved noir-type thrillers, the studios certainly made enough of them. Now, courtesy of the good folks at The Film Detective, two more are seeing the light of day.
Earliest of the two is 1946’s “The Red House,” starring the always effective Edward G. Robinson as well as British great Judith Anderson as a brother and sister who know a thing or two about that mysterious house. Miklos Rozsa does the effective score.
1952’s “Kansas City Confidential,” a bank robbery tale by top genre director Phil Karlson, stars John Payne as a patsy trying to discover who set him up. It’s said to be the inspiration for Quentin Tarantino’s “Reservoir Dogs” debut.
