Fair to middling...
20 November 2011 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This is an odd film noir movie. John Payne's career had changed with the times. Now middle-aged, he stopped playing pretty boys and acted in some very dark films like "Kansas City Confidential", "99 River Street" as well as "Hidden Fear". But, in an odd twist, "Hidden Fear" is set in Denmark! The film begins with Payne's sister being arrested for murder. Naturally she says she didn't do it and since Payne is a cop back in the States, he starts digging around to see what really occurred. His trail soon leads him to some counterfeiters. Payne plays a violent and tough guy--and this is the best aspect of the film. As for the plot, it's just okay--and a bit talky at times. Worth seeing but not at all a distinguished film.

By the way, when Payne discovers some fake $100 bills, he describes them as 'Alexander Hamiltons'. Hamilton is on the American $10 bill and Ben Franklin is on the $100 (even back in the 50s). Also, get a load of that carousel in the bar near the end of the film!
