Undertow DVD 1949 Scott Brady Crime Drama
Stars of Undertow: Scott Brady, John Russell, Dorothy Hart
On his way home to Chicago, Reagan shares the flight with a schoolteacher, Ann McKnight (Peggy Dow), someone he met at a Reno casino and helped win at the gambling table. Reagan arrives home and is met by the police. It seems that Reagan is a suspect as a potential trouble maker due to his past dispute with a Chicago mob kingpin, Big Jim, his fiancee’s uncle. The police put a tail on him, which he shakes on a Chicago elevated train. Reagan meets up with his bride-to-be, Sally Lee (Dorothy Hart). He tells her he will go to Big Jim to make peace. But when the uncle is murdered, Reagan is framed for the murder.
Undertow is a 1949 American film-noir crime film directed by William Castle and starring Scott Brady, John Russell, Dorothy Hart and Peggy Dow. It is the story of an ex-con, a former Chicago mobster, who is accused of the murder of a high-ranking Chicago boss. The movie marks the second film to feature a young actor named Rock Hudson and the first in which he received a film credit for his work.
“Undertow” has a quite derivative screenplay and any film noir buff should give it a chance – it thoroughly deserves it. It features at least one unforgettable scene: a chase in a long corridor which gives you goose flesh.
