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

"12/12 Synopsis:Call Northside 777 is a 1948 documentary-style film noir directed by Henry Hathaway. It is based on the true story of a Chicago reporter who proved that a man in prison for murder was wrongly convicted 11 years before. Jimmy Stewart will forever remain one of my favorite actors; the guy is a legend and one of the greatest actors of all time...definitely in the top three. I have yet to see one of his films that I did not enjoy. While I can't regard this film as one of his best, "

“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.

"A movie that wouldn't be nearly as interesting if Stewart weren't in the lead."
