High Wall (1947)

- October Film Noir Selection

This is the story of a man who returns from two years in Burma to find his wife in another man's apartment. When he wakes up he is in an asylum having confessed to murdering his wife. While in the care of the county he undergoes an operation to help with his debilitating headaches. After the surgery he realizes that he did not kill his wife and must try to clear his name so his son will know he is not a murderer. With the help of his doctor he searches for the real murderer and tries to clear his name. I was somewhat disappointed in the film. It could have been a wonderful film noir but it became very hokey with the use, twice, of truth serum. The extremely happy ending was also cheesy. What started off promising ended up a let down
