Editorial Reviews

Academy Award nominee Trevor Howard (Sons & Lovers, Superman: The Movie, The Third Man) gives one of his greatest performances as Clem, an ex-serviceman who is fed up after the War and drawn to the excitement of black-marketeering. His psychopathic, sadist gang boss, Narcy (Griffith Jones), betrays him when he refuses to deal in drugs, and the story becomes a breathtaking tale of revenge. The complex ending of They Made Me a Fugitive is not a trivial resolution, but lives up to the social consequences of this violent and disturbing film that Leonard Maltin raves ''No holds barred...packs a real punch.'' From legendary screenwriter Noel Langley (The Wizard of Oz).

Format: Blu-ray
In 1947, the British film noir "They Made Me a Fugitive (also known as "I Became a Criminal" was released in theaters.

Based on the novel written "A Convicted Has Escaped" by Jackson Budd, the film would be directed by Alberto Cavalcanti (best known for "Dead of Night", "Went the Day Well?" and "Song of the Sea"), a screenplay by Noel Langley ("The Wizard of Oz", "A Christmas Carol", "Ivanhoe") and cinematography by Otto Heller ("The Ladykillers", "Alfie", "Peeping Tom").

The film would star Trevor Howard ("Brief Encounter", "The Third Man", "Gandhi", "Superman"), Sally Grace ("The Hidden Room", "The Saint in London", "Suicide Squadron"), Griffith Jones ("Henry V", "The Comedy of Errors", "Kill Her Gently") and Rene Ray ("Jennifer Hale", "The Passing of Third Floor Back" and "Twilight Women").

The film was released on Blu-ray in July 2012 courtesy of Kino Lorber featuring a restoration by the BFI National Archive with funding provided by The Film Foundation.

VIDEO:

"They Made Me a Fugitive" is presented in 1080p High Definition (1:33:1 aspect ratio) and black and white. The film was restored by the BFI National Archive.

The film looks very good on Blu-ray considering its age. No major flickering problems, no blurring during the video, no warping or any problems. The picture quality is quite clean and looks like the original negative source for the film was in very good shape.

The Blu-ray release of "The Made Me a Fugitive" is definitely a better upgrade over its older Kino DVD counterpart. Better clarity and detail, owners of the previous DVD will definitely feel it is worth upgrading to Blu-ray!

AUDIO & SUBTITLES:

"They Made Me a Fugitive" is presented in LPCM Monaural 2.0.

I enjoyed watching "They Made Me A Criminal" DVD. Great acting by well known actors giving the B&W a touch of nostalgia for the movie lovers. A hard to find DVD, but so nice to have these type of old classics available through Amazon.
I had missed this film when it was shown in theaters; but I feel very lucky to be able to enjoy in DVD format and enhance my video collection.

Sincerely,

MC

This appears to have been transferred from the same source element (BFI preservation materials) as Kino's earlier DVD of this movie. It's much better, especially in terms of midtone detail. But the bitrate is on the low side for a BD (typically fluctuating between around 17-20), I suspect so that they could get it onto a single layer one to save costs, and there are no extras. Given the absence of any extras, $30 is quite a hefty sticker price, though it must be kept in mind that smaller, independent video labels don't have the resources of the studios and can't publish archive or "classic" titles as a loss-leader. The bottom line: if this is a movie you know and admire, this BD is well worth it. If not, you might feel that the cost is a bit steep.
