High Wall

Steven Kenet says he killed his wife, but even he doesn't really know. A wartime head trauma has left him subject to disorientations and blackouts. So he enters a psych ward where, the DA asserts, he'll hide behind the wall of an insanity plea.

    Comments about High Wall:

    This is a tense, darkly photographed, beautifully acted film. Robert Taylor is at his best as the tortured vet. Audrey Totter is totally convincing as his shrink. Herbert Marshall is wonderfully slimy. Lots of plot twists and a surprise ending. Highly recommended.

          Comments about High Wall:

          Robert Taylor is in top form as a husband, possibly framed for the murder of his wife. Herbert Marshall is also fine here. One of the best film noir's i have ever seen. And the shots and cinematography of the rainy scenes near the films end? Absolutely stunning and moody. Buy this film if you like noirs, you won't be disappointed.

            The image is sharp, excellent contrast, and the sound is clear.WB Archive has done well with this "B Movie" without any restoration!
            Great Cast, Herbert Marshall is quite good as usual, but the story is too "expectable".
            Anyway it was entertaining, and the print is really nice!
