Fritz Lang (director) BEYOND A REASONABLE DOUBT (1956) Set of 14 photos
[Los Angeles]: RKO Pictures, 1956. Set of fourteen (14) vintage original 8 x 10″ (20 x 25 cm.) black-and-white glossy silver gelatin photos. All but one have studio copyright information on bottom margin; that one has an RKO Copyright ink stamp on verso. Minor wear, small corner chip on one and a small mended tear on another. Near fine.
Fritz Lang’s last American movie, and the last of his many important noir films.
A tricky plot wherein someone frames himself (a writer with the assistance of his publisher) in order to point out the flaws in the justice system, intending to prove his innocence in court — only to have all of the evidence destroyed and have the law turned against themselves.
Grant, p. 61. Silver, Ward, Ursini, Porfirio, p. 37: “The film poses a social statement about the plight of an innocent man but it is filled with an array of submerged plot elements that belie a far more complex and sinister world than is otherwise suggested by the simple sets and washed-out images.”
With Dana Andrews and Joan Fontaine are co-stars Sidney Blackmer and Barbara Nichols.
