Arthur Franz catches on to Helene Stanton, Beverly Garland and Michael Ansara's rackets
29 March 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"New Orleans Uncensored" (1955) is a Columbia film crime-noir, featuring lots of location work in the 20th Century Fox style of the time. Some actual authority figures participate, but the story of cleaning up corruption on the docks is mainly carried by a good cast of professionals. Mike Mazurki has a role as an enforcer who assists Michael Ansara's devious waterfront pilfering operation. Ansara's moll is Helene Stanton, but she's rather independent and trysts with Arthur Franz, who also has a warm relationship with Beverly Garland, wife of a dock acquaintance (William Henry). Stacy Harris, who would star three years later in "New Orleans After Dark", is a disillusioned ex-boxer who knows what's going on. At first, Franz goes along simply to get a job, but his honesty gets in the way.

I'd rate this at 5.5 if I could. It's a decent watch for fans of these crime-noir stories, but it's not deeply noir. The noir aspects of story, character and cinematography are present but they tend to wane in a good many later movies like this. It's a b-movie and Columbia didn't have big budgets for movies like this, but it does the job.
