Directed by Andre De Toth

Mastered in HD from a 35mm dupe negative preserved by the UCLA Film & Television Archive - Film noir great Dick Powell (Murder, My Sweet) plays an ex-vet living the American dream with a beautiful home, loving wife (Jane Wyatt, Lost Horizon), wonderful kid (Jimmy Hunt, Invaders From Mars) and a great job as an insurance executive. But Powell like many returning servicemen exhibits a restlessness experienced by many veterans, his penchant for excitement leads him on an illicit affair with sexy bombshell (Lizabeth Scott, Too Late For Tears) that leads to much more than a guilty conscience- a complicated web of intrigue, jealousy and murder. Considered by many as one of the greatest film noirs of all time, Pitfall features top-notch direction by the great Andre De Toth (Hidden Fear) and a great performance by Raymond Burr (TVs Perry Mason) as a corrupt private eye.


Blu-ray Extras Include:

Audio Commentary with Film Historian Eddie Muller
