Jimmy Stewart seeks to prove the innocence of a convinct by gathering evidence 11 years after the conviction. The story is based on actual events and the studio wasted no time flagging that one out. The narration is really annoying here while the pace is slow and only made interesting by watching police and newspaper procedures of yore. Lee J. Cobb co-stars and its quite refreshing not to see him ... read more

Of the small number of Henry Hathaway films that I’ve seen, I haven’t cared much for any of his westerns, but I’m quite fond of his work in noir and thrillers. Niagara’s Technicolor vistas and Marilyn Monroe’s fantastic performance make that an enjoyable ride, while 14 Hours makes solid use of its ripped from the headlines story and ensemble of character actors.

“Of the small number of Henry Hathaway films that I’ve seen, I haven’t cared much for any of his westerns, but I’m quite fond of his work in noir and thrillers. Niagara’s Technicolor vistas and Marilyn Monroe’s fantastic performance make that an enjoyable ride, while 14 Hours makes solid use of its ripped from the headlines story and ensemble of character actors. Call Northside 777 features many of those same strengths, like Niagara it’s got a great movie star turn in the central role, and like 14 Hours is takes a true story and embellishes it to great dramatic effect, sprinkling in some character actors giving solid work in meaty parts.

“Jimmy Stewart seeks to prove the innocence of a convinct by gathering evidence 11 years after the conviction. The story is based on actual events and the studio wasted no time flagging that one out. The narration is really annoying here while the pace is slow and only made interesting by watching police and newspaper procedures of yore. Lee J. Cobb co-stars and its quite refreshing not to see him in a bad guy role, though, not as entertaining. Call Northside is a middleweight crime drama.
