4.0 out of 5 stars Another Entertaining Box Set July 3, 2007
Verified Purchase
Though I am a devotee of the film noir style, I am not expert on films and film-making as one early reviewer seems to be. All of the movies in this set predate my birth and I hadn't even heard of any of them let alone seen them before this box set became available. But because I enjoyed the first Forgotten Noir set, it was easy to take a chance on this one.
Overall, this set is very good although its easy to see why at least a couple of them were "forgotten". Here are my favorites, from best to worst:
1)I'll Get You: A cold-war type thriller involving missing atomic scientists, a shadowy figure sought by both the FBI and the British Secret Service, loads of intrigue, and a beautiful woman. George Raft is excellent as is most of the supporting cast. A top-tier noir film.
2)The Man From Cairo:George Raft again as an American tourist who inadvertently gets involved in intrigues involving French gold hijacked during World War II and missing ever since. Mostly takes place in Algiers, a once French-controlled city which postwar was filled with adventurers of all stripes and from all over. It was also a city where a stranger could easily find trouble. Both the crooks and the police are interested in Raft's character and that makes for an exciting film.
3)FBI Girl: Corruption and murder drive this exciting film. An ambitious governor and his amoral cronies will stop at nothing to keep the governor's secret from being discovered. An excellent cast featuring Cesar Romero, Raymond Burr, and Audrey Totter will keep you in your seat as the governor is finally unmasked.
4)Tough Assignment: An intrepid reporter and his wife discover that their butcher is being forced by goons to buy and sell uninspected beef.

VCI Entertainment and Kit Parker Films presents "FORGOTTEN NOIR COLLECTOR'S SET - SERIES TWO" --- (Dolby digitally remastered) --- Film noir has sources not only in cinema but other artistic mediums as well...the low-key lighting schemes commonly linked with the classic mode are in the tradition of chiaroscuro and tenebrism, techniques using high contrasts of light and dark developed by 15th- and 16th-century painters associated with Mannerism and the Baroque...film noir's aesthetics are deeply influenced by German Expressionism, a cinematic movement of the 1910s and 1920s closely related to contemporaneous developments in theater, photography, painting, scultpture, and architecture...opportunities offered by the booming Hollywood film industry and, later, the threat of growing Nazi power led to the emigration of many important film artists working in Germany who had either been directly involved in the Expressionist movement or studied with its practitioners...Directors such as Fritz Lang, Robert Siodmak, and Michael Curtiz brought dramatic lighting techniques and a psychologically expressive approach to mise-en-scène with them to Hollywood, where they would make some of the most famous of classic noirs. Lang's 1931 masterwork, the German M, is among the first major crime films of the sound era to join a characteristically noirish visual style with a noir-type plot, one in which the protagonist is a criminal (as are his most successful pursuers). M was also the occasion for the first star performance by Peter Lorre, who would go on to act in several formative American noirs of the classic era ... featuring top performances from the '40s and '50s with outstanding drama and screenplays, along with a wonderful cast and supporting actors to bring it all together ...

4.0 out of 5 stars Forgotten but fun October 6, 2007
Verified Purchase
When most people think of movie studios (which they probably don't very often), they usually think of big names like Warner Brothers, Columbia, Paramount, MGM, 20th Century Fox and Universal. But even when these old-timers were in their prime, their were other production companies as well such as Lippert Pictures. Lippert was one of the "Poverty Row" studios that produced cheapie movies that were occasionally memorable but more often forgotten. Hence, the collection of old Lippert pictures in the Forgotten Noir sets. Series Two presents six short movies - with the longest being 82 minutes and two under an hour - that are definitely second or third tier material, but still are not without merit.

The discs are labeled Four through Six (the first three in Series One). I happened to watch the discs in reverse order, which is also how I'll review them. Disc Six has I'll Get You and Fingerprints Don't Lie. I'll Get You owes a bit to The Third Man, with George Raft as an American sneaking into England following up on a job offer from a man he met in the States. By the time he was doing these Lippert Pictures (which would also include Loan Shark in Series One and The Man From Cairo, reviewed below), Raft was a bit long in the tooth for these tough guy roles. The story is passable but unexceptional.

More interesting - and more flawed - is Fingerprints Don't Lie, an early bare-bones version of a CSI episode. Richard Travis plays a crime lab technician who feels he is about to send an innocent man to prison despite fingerprint evidence incriminating him. For better or for worse, this movie is one of three in this set to have Sid Melton providing comic relief.
