  3. Brute Force (1947, directed by Jules Dassin), with a stellar cast including Burt Lancaster, Hume Cronyn, Charles Bickford, Sam Levene, John Hoyt, Jeff Corey, Sir Lancelot, Howard Duff, Art Smith, and Whit Bissell, with cameos by Yvonne DeCarlo, Ella Raines, and Ann Blyth. Rarely do I call a film inspired, but this one was in many ways. Tight script (Richard Brooks), gripping story, top-notch acting and musical score (Miklos Rozsa), and excellent direction. Ostensibly a story about the steps leading up to a spectacular, failed prison break, but ultimately a commentary on man's inhumanity to man, and the often fine line between right and wrong. The scene with stool pigeon Jeff Corey lashed to a "coal" car, heading towards a machine gun team and sudden death is unforgettable, as is the climax when prisoner Lancaster throws throws sadistic guard captain Cronyn off the watchtower. A very violent, and honest film for its time.

    "Conflict" Bogart couldn't be any better,if you haven't seen it by all means find it. Haven't seen it in years and it still kept me on the edge of my seat. Highly reccomended

    Just watched 'The Caine Mutiny' I can't believe I've never seen this before, what a good film Bogarts acting especially the courtroom scene where his real character slips out was some of his best...well done Hollywood way back when films were films....outstanding, honestly made my afternoon!

    Yes... a fine one there. Excellent and a believable story in most respects. I love Jose Ferrer's speech at the end... outstanding. He gave Fred McMurray both barrels and reloaded on him. Spectacular acting. Glad you caught this one!

    Written and shot right down the road from me in Schnectady... It's as rough there as it looks... trust me, but they're trying to fix it up.

  16. I thought it was an enjoyable film. You have to watch it a couple of times as the story line is a bit confusing. Afterwards I had look up the spoiler on wikipedia to fully understand it.
