Alias Nick Beal (DVD)
Directed by John Farrow
From John Farrow, the outstanding director of Wake Island, Calcutta, The Big Clock, Night Has a Thousand Eyes and Hondo, comes this shock-filled film noir starring Ray Milland (The Lost Weekend), Audrey Totter (The Set-Up), Thomas Mitchell (Stagecoach) and George Macready (Gilda). Joseph Foster (Mitchell) is an honest district attorney who wants to run for governor in order to clean up the criminal underworld. Blocked by corrupt political forces, Foster would practically have to make a deal with the Devil to reach his goal. Enter Nick Beal (Milland), a diabolically handsome gent with a slick line of patter and a smooth, infallible method of getting things done. Foster agrees to a deal, and to bind the bargain, Beal sends out one of his most trusted associates, Donna Allen (Totter), to keep Foster in line. When Foster finally realizes that he’s sold his soul, there seems to be no way out... but that’s when the forces of Good switch into high gear.
