Feelin’ Feisty

2 Episodes

Though his name is not as well remembered today, Felix E. Feist was, along with directors like Anthony Mann and Joseph H. Lewis, one of the masters of the B noir, bringing a hard-boiled toughness and stylistic punch to the evocatively gritty crime pictures he directed in the late 1940s and early ’50s. This selection of two of Feist’s finest—the hard-hitting corrupt-cop drama THE MAN WHO CHEATED HIMSELF and the slam-bang couple-on-the-run thriller TOMORROW IS ANOTHER DAY—shows his facility for turning threadbare production values and well-worn genre conventions into pure pulp poetry.
