Little know post-WWII Film-Nior gem set in New York City on a hot
sweltering summer night with one of the most unusual murder mysteries
you'll ever see. The movie starts out with Sleepy Parsons, Marvin
Miller, pleading with his estranged wife Edna, Lola Lane, for the
$1,400.00 that she owes him. Edna after insulting the poor blind and
very sick man Sleepy finds out that the money, Sleepy's $1,400.00, that
she had in her purse is gone! what happened to it?
Earlier that evening Edna met this young sailor Alex, Bill Williams,on
leave at a restaurant that her gangster brother Val Bartelli, Joseph
Calleia, owned. After getting him drunk Val cheated him, playing cards,
out of his pay. The story got even weirder when Edna telling Alex that
she'll pay him to goes up to her place to fix her radio, Alex is a
radio repairman in the navy, and got the poor slob even more drunk
where he lost consciousness. waking up at a news stand after being
given a cup of strong coffee by the newspaper man to clear his mind
Alex staggered up on his feet a wad of $1,400.00 falls out of his
pocket, where did it come from?
Going to a dance-hall later that night Alex gets very friendly with a
local dance girl June, Susan Hayward. After June finished dancing with
the costumers Alex goes with June to her place to have a bite to eat.
At June's place Alex gets this bright idea to go back to where Edna
lives and return the $1,400.00 ,which he feels is hers, with June
coming along for the ride. When both get there they find, to their
surprise and shock, that Edna was murdered, who did it? was it Alex?
was it Sleepy? was it about a half dozen other suspects who had some
connection with Edna? All I can say about the movie is that it will
floor you with an ending that you won't see coming and even when it
does! It will take you a while to realize what you missed in the clues
that were so skillfully dropped leading to it all throughout the film.
"Deadline at Dawn" is one of those films that just sticks with you
right from the start. Even though there's a number of flaws in it you
easily overlook them when you realize that it's going in a direction
that will more then make up for them, with it's almost unbelievable
ending. Paul Lukas as NYC Cabbie, Gus Hoffman,is at first just an
innocent bystander who picks up the couple, Alex & June.
As the movie goes on he becomes more and more central to the story by
being more of a detective then a taxi driver as well as having the
knowledge of a Ivy League Collage professor! whats this guy doing
driving a cab? As the trio slowly work together time is running out to
find out not only who murdered Edna but to also clear Alex of the
crime, in which he's the prime suspect, and at the same time make it
possible for Alex to catch the 6;00AM bus to Norfolk Virginia to report
to his ship.
Powerful and surprising ending that has elements to it that you just
rarely see in movies today and never in movies back then, in the
1940's. It really has you thinking about what is really good and bad in
the world. Like I said before the ending just floored me not that it
was so surprising, it was, but that it shows just how human and
imperfect people are in the movie as well as they are in real life.
