Blast of Silence 1961 Allen Baron Crime Drama
Stars: Allen Baron, Molly McCarthy, Larry Tucker
Blast of Silence story line. Having been ‘away’ for some time, professional killer Frankie Bono returns to New York to do another job. He is to assassinate a mid-level mobster. Although intending to avoid unnecessary contact while carefully stalking his victim, Bono is recognized by an old fellow from the orphanage. His calm and unambitious life and happy marriage contrast heavily with Bono’s solitary and haunted existence.
All the methodical preparation becomes unraveled as fate deals Frankie a crueler hand than he’d planned for his unsuspecting victim. Exhausted and distracted, Bono makes another mistake, but his contract is not one to back out of.
This black and white film, set in New York, uses its locations and actors with great skill. The sound editing is very effective and adds moments of tension to the atypically dark contrast lighting. One shot of an exterior street is enormously powerful without any action beside the cityscape. The director has a great eye. Atmospheric takes often feature Bono in a raincoat and hat stalking the mean streets of the Big Apple. The shots show him dwarfed by the concrete jungle cityscape. If you like film noir, this film is worthy of your viewing.
