The Breaking Point-Well made adaptation of To Have and Have Not that is very different in look, style and tone from that of the Bogart-Bacall film. John Garfield does a good job in his role as the main character, Harry Morgan. The last shot of the film is a sad and sombering image.

I can add
The Walking Dead - A

Really enjoyed the look of this one. Very Germanic style lighting
with lots of shadows and those classic window blinds images.
Kind of a hybrid gangster horror film with Karloff. I'd love to know
how the two of them got on during the shoot.

Case of the Curious Bride-Good second film in William Warren/Perry Mason series. Prefer the previous film, Case of the Howling Dog. Memorable first appearance in Hollywood film for future star, Errol Flynn.
