Best remembered as Clark Kent's kindly adoptive PA in the 1978 Superman movie, Glenn Ford once appeared in more hard-edged fare. Here he stars as Dave Bannion, a tough but honest cop who suspects a powerful crime syndicate has infiltrated the force. After his wife is murdered, Bannion is set on a single-minded course of both justice and vengeance. Although film noir's heyday was the 40s, Fritz Lang's film is still a diamond-hard example of the genre - often violent and seemingly nihilistic, but with Ford as the flawed knight battling the forces of evil.
