1955 – directed by Joseph H. Lewis – with Cornel Wilde, Jean Wallace and Richard Conte
"First is first and second is nobody!" Tough guy Richard Conte and honest cop Cornel Wilde get obsessive over femme fatale Jean Wallace in this stylish and unjustly forgotten film noir. Aided by a strong supporting cast (Brian Donlevy, Lee Van Cleef, Earl Holliman) and brilliant chiaroscuro photography by John Alton, director Joseph H. Lewis dials up the smut and violence level sky high. Brilliant, visionary and suspenseful, The Big Combo delivers a cinematic wallop that rarely has been seen since.
PLUS!–Jack Webb is Sgt. Joe Friday--a lean, mean cop machine in The Big Thief (1953) + selected' rock -n' roll clips from The Johnny Otis Show featuring Lionel Hampton!
