Criminal Georges Rollin has a new identity but will he be found out?
4 June 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"La Muerte Silba un Blues" (1964) is a beautifully photographed film noir, with some really nicely lit scenes with sharp contrast and a noir story. It's a find for noir fans. I watched a subtitled copy recorded off of a TV channel that looked very good and ran 78 minutes. The cinematographer was the very experienced Juan Marine.

I was very impressed with the skillful work of Jesus Franco, clearly a director who knows exactly what he is doing. Franco co-wrote the screenplay and story with Luis de Diego. The music score deserves a special mention. Franco wrote some tunes for the blues-jazz club portions, but beyond that this movie has a full and creative score that really complements what we see on the screen. The composer was Anton Garcia Abril who has scored a tremendous number of Spanish films.

The story opens 10 years in the past on a long stark bridge with a truck rolling to a police stop to be inspected. There is a doublecross involving 3 men: Castro, Smith and Vogel. Vogel (Georges Rollin) is the double-crosser. Castro is shot and Smith goes to prison. Ten years later, Smith is playing jazz trumpet at a New Orleans club. Vogel lives in Jamaica and has married Castro's former wife. On vacation, she happens to see Smith and he sees her, but he doesn't know she's married Vogel who now goes under the name Radeck and lives a rich life and is hated and feared by the Jamaicans who live in the nearby area. She tells her husband and that sets in motion the rest of the story as he attempts to cover up his criminal past.

Definitely recommended as a well-done film noir.
