I Walk Alone

“In the late Forties, Paramount released a series of films noirs unlike others at the time. They were produced by Hal B. Wallis, and usually starred Burt Lancaster or Kirk Douglas. In I Walk Alone, Lancaster comes out of prison after ten years - he took a bum rap for his friends - looking to cash in on his part of the nightclub his pal Douglas bought with the loot. But everything's changed; he can't fit in. He has only one way to deal with his problems: brute force. I Walk Alone is a very intelligent movie about a man totally perplexed by the new postwar world. And this world became the new world of filmmaking, too. The gangster of the Thirties became the gangster of the Forties.”
