The Tell-Tale Hand
14 March 2010 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

In a jazzy New Orleans bar, handsome piano man Robert Loggia (as Tom Brandt) fends off lonely "Chopsticks" playing blonde Ann Carroll (as Nina Olson) to make eyes at the exotically sexy Miriam Colon (as Alma Rodriguez). When he gets off work, Mr. Loggia follows Ms. Colon into an alley, and builds up some sweaty passion. "I'm dead without you!" he begs. When Colon rejects him for another man, Loggia stabs her to death with a broken bottle. Then, he gets a case of guilty conscience Edgar Allen Poe would envy (if he hadn't already thought up the story). Loggia finds himself unable to wash away the dead woman's blood.

"The Hand" isn't too original, but Loggia performs the part nicely; he and the "Alcoa" crew seem to court censorship with the opening murder. The eerie music, by Harry Lubin, plays well. But, the "Vengeance is mine, saith the Lord" coda seems to come out of nowhere.

***** The Hand (12/28/59) John Newland ~ Robert Loggia, Miriam Colon, Ann Carroll, Joe Sullivan
