Lady in Cement (1968)
"Hip" 60's version of "Murder, My Sweet"
Film noir fans who are familiar with "Murder, My Sweet"(1944)directed by Edward Dmytryk, with Dick Powell and Claire Trevor can't help but see the similarities. Fun seeing Dan Blocker playing the Moose Malloy role (played in 1944 by Mike Mazurki). Guess they wanted a sequel to the first Tony Rome film and decided an updated version of a detective classic would fit the bill. This is as much a "period" piece as the original is to its time: Dick Powell and the whole flick personifying the 40's, Sinatra and Raquel Welch, et al, and the "funky" music and "edgy" references by Sinatra being a poster child for the free-lovin', hip 60's.
The Dark Past (1948)
Narrator - John Forsythe???
As soon as I heard the opening narration, I realized that it was the voice of John Forsythe to which I was listening. After a few minutes,however, I thought that it might, in fact, be Lee J. Cobb doing the voice-over for his own character ... until the scene where Cobb is leaning back on his office chair, "reminiscing" ... and when the voice-over comes in, it's subtly (but clearly) different than Cobb's voice. I don't see Forsythe credited anywhere, yet I know that voice so well from the Charlie's Angels TV show, amongst many other things. I feel confident that it's Forsythe ... or am I having auditory hallucinations? ;) Does anyone have any information on this? I'd love to know if I'm right. Thanks, in advance.
