The Big Combo
Directed by John Lewis
The Big Combo
This iconic film noir crime film directed by Joseph H. Lewis stars Cornel Wilde, Richard Conte and Brian Donlevy, as well as Jean Wallace, who was Wilde's wife at the time. It also included the final screen appearance of actress Helen Walker.
Police Lt. Leonard Diamond is on a personal crusade to bring down sadistic gangster Mr. Brown. He is also dangerously obsessed with Brown's girlfriend, the suicidal Susan Lowell. His main objective as a detective is to uncover what happened to a woman called "Alicia" from the crime boss's past. A traditional tale of a cop’s pursuit of a kingpin as having virtually nothing to do with honoring law and order and everything to do with private vendettas that tumble into reality out of the realms of our submerged desires.
