In the car after the chicken run with the train, Gino lights a cigarette in close-up. Cut to a wider angle, and he's again lighting the cigarette. Back to close-up, and his hand is now at his side, with the cigarette out of frame until he raises it to take a puff. See more »
In some copies (now in the public domain), the name of one of the major stars of that movie is deleted ! It should start with «Robert Cummings, Michèle Morgan» in The Chase. Co-starring Steve Cochran. With... etc.» In fact, Miss Morgan IS the leading lady : her part is almost as pivotal as Mr. Cummings'. Why is her name thus «cut out» ??? If you look at some of the posters, she does indeed have second star billing, right opposite Robert Cummings, in that «strange» (and somewhat «post-modern»!) film noir. Has anybody else noticed that «tampering» with the original credits ? Can anybody guess why that is so ? Remember : in the forties, lovely Miss Morgan was one of the most famous and beloved stars in France. And she has appeared since, and after, in some British movies such as The Fallen Idol, and in other American films (The Vintage, The Lost Command) and in some international productions.
