(1942) Directed by Frank Tuttle. Alan Ladd, Veronica Lake, Robert Preston. (81 min.)
A baby-faced killer with a soft spot for fluffy kittens crosses paths with a petite prestidigitator, a peppermint-nibbling fat man, and a cantankerous cookie dunker. Lake’s iconic peekaboo hairstyle and Ladd’s sangfroid riveted a wartime moviegoing nation in this thriller written by Graham Greene. Universal Archive print.
