Great film noir! When a lonely GI Arthur Winant (DeFore) is taken in by Danny Haley (Heston) and his pals, the first thing they do is play poker. When Arthur loses and owes them all money, he ends up hanging himself. At the time, it seems OK, but they soon find out that Arthur has a psychotic brother. They don't believe it, but soon, they're dropping like flies, Danny and his girlfriend Fran (Scott) have to get away from it. This was pretty much Charlton Hestons first film role. Only 27, Heston proved in this movie that he could be a great actor, and I'm sure he proved it later on ever more in "Touch of Evil", or "Ben-Hur". Supported by beautiful film noir femme fatale usual Lizabeth Scott, Heston couldn't have gotten better. William Dieterle directed this gritty movie in 1950, and the name "Dark City" certainly could've derived from the dreary cinematography and the dramatic script. "Dark City" is a really good movie. Film noir fans will absolutely love it.
