PURSUED (1947)

Director Raoul Walsh, who made brilliant gangster noir ‘White Heat’, made this western meets noir where drama was pushed more in quite a predictable plot that shifts between mystery, thrill and romance. The biggest letdown about the film is the climax and the denouement of suspense; the haunting memory of man in pair of shoes! But what is sheer treat watching this long unavailable film is the young and confident Robert Mitchum and fine B&W camerawork by James Wong Howe.
