Directed by H. Bruce Humberstone


In this tense film noir thriller, Victor Mature (Cry of the City) plays Frankie Christopher, a sports promoter who's in the hot seat, relentlessly grilled by a ruthless detective after the murder of a fashion model he made famous. Weighing even more heavily against him is the fact that he's in love with the dead girl's sister (Betty Grable, Pin Up Girl). But Frankie's not the only suspect in this taut expose of New York's cafe society. The police detective also obsessively pursues Frankie's partner, a gossip columnist, and hotel night clerk. Filled with plot twists and turns, I Wake Up Screaming will have you guessing until its surprising ending. The amazing cast includes Carole Landis (Four Jills in a Jeep), Laird Cregar (The Lodger) and Elisha Cook Jr. (The Maltese Falcon). Wonderful direction by H. Bruce Humberstone (Wonder Man), with a screenplay by Dwight Taylor (Pickup on South Street), based on a novel by Steve Fisher (Dead Reckoning).

Reviews
