The Man Who Dared (1946)
User ReviewsReview this title
The Fritz Lang's movie was shot a decade later and the screenwriters are not the same, unlike the story... Strange, isn't it?
At last, only the very end is a bit different.
No IMDb user has noticed this, even for the Lang's film...I am astonished. It's staring you in the face, as a flashlight !!!
Nevertheless, I admit that the Sturges' movie is a rare gem. No one seems to know it. That's the reason why, I think.
The cast are good in this film, especially Leslie Brooks as Macready's fiancée. Unfortunately, the film bombards you from the beginning with too much information. The story is not difficult to follow but it is made heavy-going by cramming in so much in such a short space of time. The result is a loss of interest and we end up just waiting for the thing to finish. Come on, get on and resolve the damn thing. It's not bad but George Macready is an idiot and too much happens.
