The good folks at UCLA Film et Television Archive... have been restoring overlooked movies, and four of their efforts are freshly available on Blu-ray.
Three are noir films and one’s an unusual drama with a Frenchman’s view of America.
Produced independently by maverick European refugee Seymour Nebenzal for United Artists...
The Chase (1946) is a doozy of a postwar headache starring “Love That Bob” Cummings as a troubled, decorated, unemployed war vet who’s hired as a chauffeur by a suavely sadistic gangster (Steve Cochran).
It’s fair to wonder if the psychopath actually intends the chump to fall for his sultry trophy wife, played by Michele Morgan in long blonde locks and shimmery gowns.
He spends most of his time shrugging and yawning, so it means something when his boss’ moods make him wipe his brow.

“Sometimes, chum, you go soft-headed. I'd like to see any blonde do that to me.”
“There are blonde dames and soft-headed saps galore in THE DARK Noir ALLEY Of Film Noir, a celebration of one of the American cinema’s richest and most creative (and most jaded and cynical) periods.
Where crime, corruption, greed, cruelty, and despair; of dark city streets, double-crossing broads, doomed anti-heroes, cold-blooded killers, and two-bit heels — all served up with lavish helpings of menacing Expressionist style and marvelous hard-boiled dialogue.”

OUT OF THE PAST (1946)
Robert Mitchum and Jane Greer in the classic that set the standard 1947 film noir-Out Of The Past
Adapted from Daniel Mainwaring’s provocatively titled novel Build My Gallows High (1946), Jacques Tourneur’s riveting noir is often ranked as one of the best of the genre.
There are multiple reasons why Out of the Past is such an exemplary work, and in part has to do with how faithfully and inventively it adheres to the form, where themes of betrayal, corruption and fatalism are interwoven and entangled together in a perplexing and convoluted plot.
Unlike most film noirs, however, much of the drama is played out not in the typical confined corners of a shadowy city, but in broad daylight and natural settings – in this case, the sun-drenched backdrops of Lake Tahoe and Puerto Vallarta.
Watch the film complete over there on Daily-motion:
Throughout, cinematographer, Nicholas Musuraca –who also filmed Tourneur’s Cat People (1942) – utilizes stark imagery, contrasting the dark scenes of murder and treachery with stunning compositions of rural, wooded retreats.
where themes of betrayal, corruption and fatalism are interwoven and entangled together in a perplexing and convoluted plot. Out Of The Past was re-released in France in 1967 as 'Pendez-moi haut et court'.
Alfred Hitchcock remakes his 1934 thriller into a lush, widescreen adventure. The Man Who Knew Too Much makes excellent use of exotic settings, playful chemistry between Doris Day and James Stewart, and the brisk story of an average man sucked into an international assassination plot.
