Guest Introduction by Paul Karasik.

A private eye escapes his past to run a gas station in a small town, but his past catches up with him. Now he must return to the big city world of danger, corruption, double crosses and duplicitous dames.




Paul Karasik has selected three films as prime examples of Must-See Film Noir. Paul is an Eisner Award winning cartoonist whose work has appeared in the New Yorker and whose graphic novels have been translated world-wide. He is the Development Director of the Martha’s Vineyard Public Charter School and lives in West Tisbury.

"Each change of angle and shift of light evokes an inner disturbance; the actors seem to push through the dense shadow as through water, revealing fast people in slow motion ..." - Richard Brody, New Yorker

"Direction by Jacques Tourneur pays close attention to mood development, achieving realistic flavor that is further emphasized by real life settings and topnotch lensing by Nicholas Musuraca." - Variety
