Critic Reviews for He Ran All the Way
Berry turned a standard ticking-clock melodrama into an action-movie meditation on manhood.
Less than a classic but more than a curio, John Garfield's last vehicle marks the disintegration of Hollywood's old left.
By the time he finished directing this notable addition to the film noir cannon in 1951, John Berry had become the eleventh member of the Senator Joe McCarthy's "Hollywood Ten" blacklist.
Audience Reviews for He Ran All the Way
Like the title the movie missteps, but this is a classic for several reasons: John Garfield's last movie. 1st film to use the family trapped by a criminal storyline and more. Best reason to see it though is James Wong Howe's brilliant noir cinematography.
Intense drama of a man on the run who slowly crumbles while waiting to escape from the desperate situation he has created for himself. This tense noir was the end of the line for John Garfield who because of unjust hounding by HUAC and the dasterdly Joseph McCarthy died shortly after from a heart attack brought on by the stress. He is exceptional as always supported by three other strong perfomers, Wallace Ford, Shelley Winters and fellow blacklist victim Selena Royle.
decent enough noir; the first of the 'home invasion' thrillers and the last of john garfield's career. alot of people were broken by the blacklist, few as tragically as garfield, a major star and great anti-hero who refused to name names and was banned for life, dying only one year later at age 39 and today mostly forgotten
