RKO Radio Pictures presents "CROSSFIRE" (22 July 1947) (86 min/B&W) (Fully Restored/Dolby Digitally Remastered) -- Edward Dmytryk's shadowy noir deals with a righteous homicide cop (Robert Young) investigating a murder --- Evidence points to a racist demobbed soldier Robert Ryan and his cronies - their motive, Antisemitism --- Robert Mitchum is the sergeant attempting to protect his charges while finding out the truth for himself --- This is a classic B-movie, using flashbacks and minimal lighting, making a virtue of its small budget --- It's the subject matter and the way it is dealt with that stays with you, explicitly and without apology drawing parallels between the soldiers back from a war and the enemy they were fighting --- Great performances all around --- Brave and impressive stuff.
