Arkadin, hat's off to you for remembering this particular little film!Mr. Arkadin wrote:I also have not seen anyone mention Inferno (1953). Made in 3D, Ryan is left to die in the desert by his wife and her lover. Interesting film because it depends totally on RR to carry the desert scenes and make the film believable.
Let me add: little, but powerful!
Easily one of my favorite, cheap li'l "sleeper" films, . . don't downgrade or pre-judge it, though: it's got some real muscle!
Especially fine, besides other recommendations, as a fitting denoument to the career of wonderful character actor Henry Hull, who among another assignments was as critical to enlivening the first quarter of The Fountainhead, as he was to fleshing out the final quarter of Inferno.
Beyond question, though, it was Robert Ryan who compelled the viewers to hang-in, and watch him defy the stereotype of character & situation.
Think you know how it all wraps up?
Don't bet on it!
