Goofs

The film opens with an establishing shot of the San Francisco Bay Bridge, then shows Eileen Carr (Nina Foch) standing on a bridge walkway and being accosted by a policeman who asks if she's there to kill herself. The Bay Bridge has no walkway and is not known as a suicide site; scenarist Aubrey Wisberg probably had it confused with the Golden Gate Bridge, which does have a walkway and is famous as a suicide bridge.

Too Boring for its Own Good

Escape in the Fog (1945)

** (out of 4)

Early film for director Boetticher has a former Army nurse (Nina Foch) dreaming about her walking through the fog when they witness two men trying to kill another. She screams in fear and wakes up from the dream only to have the man (William Wright) who was about to be killed enter her room. The two hit it off but what she doesn't know is that he's spy who might actually have people out to kill him. This is a pretty bland "B" movie that doesn't have too much going for it. It's certainly not a horrid movie and it might be a good way to kill 65-minutes if you enjoy watching this type of stuff in the early mornings on TCM but the director would certainly go onto much better movies. This is the type of movie that might keep you entertained while watching it but a couple minutes after the end credits you've pretty much forgotten everything you've seen. While there's nothing overly bad here, there's really nothing good either. Boetticher's direction is pretty hit and miss. He keeps the film moving at a good pace, which is a good thing but the movie goes for psychological thrills but never really grasps this. The use of premonitions play a big part in the film yet they never really come off eerie, creepy or overly realistic. Foch is easy to look at but her performance is also rather hit and miss. Wright brings some charm to his character but Otto Kruger is wasted in his role. The second half of the film deals with an important package that must be tracked down but it's just not very interesting. On a side note, the action takes place on the Golden Gate bridge with one character asking Noch's if she is thinking of killing herself. It's interesting to note that the 2006 documentary delt with suicides off this bridge so apparently they were well known back when this was filmed as well.
