Compact little crime drama tightly directed by Mann with Ann feisty in the lead. Conway isn't the most dynamic of leading men but gets the job done.

(1945) Two O'Clock Courage

Another conventional amnesiac film starring Tom Conway as the victim who is trying to recollect everything that has happened that lead up to his memory loss with a help of a femal cab driver played by Ann Rutherford with at the same time murder!

Out of several films made on people who has loss of memory- this one is one of the weakest, but because I like my films to have happy endings, I didn't mind! Not better than Hitchcock's "Spellbound" but like this film on the same same level as "Charade"!

3 out of 4

An early noir by Anthony Mann that follows an amnesiac who awakens to find that he may have committed murder. The opening sequence is beautifully down as he watch the amnesiac walk down the streets late at night. The atmospheric fog and slow tracking show make up a beautiful composition. The film as a whole features a few scenes with some great compositions but overall its a rather middle of the road film for Michael Mann. The film has an interesting mix of tone as its very serious mysterious film but also features lots of comedic moments which sometimes work and sometimes dont, leaving it to almost feel like a comedy at times. This mix of drama and comedy was a little off putting for me at times but the film still has a lot of merit. For example, the film deals with social class as well, being that the amnesiac happens to be from a higher class yet the taxi driver whom helps him find out about past comes from a lower class.
