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.

"November 02. Jimmy Stewartot mindig elmeny nezni, most is. A legjobb a hajstilusa volt, kisfius, es tiszta modern, uniszex! (Profilbol a legjobb, amikor folkel az agybol egyszer ejjel, otthon, a profil hata!) Ugy meg egyebkent kozepszer, viszont az erdekes volt, hogy nem volt 'megoldasa'. Kiderult, hogy a pacak artatlan, ki is engedik, de hogy vegulis akkor ki olte meg a rendoroket, azt nem tudjuk meg. "

“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.

"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, "
