Storyline

Returning a lost wallet gains unemployed veteran Chuck Scott a job as chauffeur to Eddie Roman, a seeming gangster whose enemies have a way of meeting violent ends. The job proves nerve-wracking, and soon Chuck finds himself pledged to help Eddie's lovely, fearful, prisoner-wife Lorna to escape. The result leaves Chuck caught like a rat in a trap, vainly seeking a way out through dark streets. But the real chase begins when the strange plot virtually starts all over again...

Why is «HER» name deleted from the credits ?!?!
12 October 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

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.
