Minor but Essential Film Noir

By Magma-Flow

Comments about The Fall Guy (1930):

One of the most typical themes of film noir immediately after WW2 was that of lost identity or amnesia. The protagonist wakes up after a traumatic war injury, a drugging, or some other cause of unconsciousness and discovers that he has lost crucial memories -- or perhaps his entire memory of who he is. The rest of the film consists his crashing around in a cold world, confronting hostile or, at best, indifferent observers, as he tries to regain the most basic facts about himself. Although this type of story reflects the postwar mood of existentialism, it also appeals to all of us on some level, because we have had nightmares with the same plot, and we fear that our waking life could slip into the same condition after a misfortune. "Fall Guy" is a full-blooded member of this subgenre. Cornell Woolrich, who wrote the story that "Fall Guy" is based on, was a specialist in these scenarios. Watch the film along with another, similar one, "Black Angel" (1946), also derived from a Woolrich work.
