THE BIG CLOCK (1948) B/W 95m dir: John Farrow

w/Ray Milland, Charles Laughton, Maureen O'Sullivan, George Macready, Rita Johnson, Elsa Lanchester, Harold Vermilyea, Dan Tobin, Henry Morgan, Richard Webb

From The Movie Guide: "Steady film noir production fraught with suspense, twisting its unique plot and characters to a clever and frightening conclusion. Milland is the shrewd editor of Crimeways Magazine which is published by Laughton, a megalomaniacal media tycoon who kills his mistress. Milland tries to solve the murder, but all clues point back at him! Almost stolen by the eccentric as usual Elsa Lanchester. In 1987, the film was remade in a military setting in NO WAY OUT, starring Kevin Costner and Gene Hackman."
