Pushover

1 year, 11 months ago at Sep 5 2:21
In 1954, Kim Novak made her debut onscreen in this forgettable minor noir. The running time is short, but the story still feels bloated and stretched out, and none of the beats feel shocking or anything more than routine.

In the wake of a bank heist, Paul Sheridan (Fred MacMurray) is part of a team of cops assigned to recover the stolen $200,000. They stake out the apartment of Lona McLane (Kim Novak), the girlfriend of the one of the robbers, and before long Paul and Lona begin a steamy affair. Lona persuades Paul to kill her boyfriend so that the two of them can escape with the money, but, in order to pull it off, Paul first has to trick his boss and fellow detectives.

The running time is short, but the story still feels bloated and stretched out, and none of the beats feel shocking or anything more than routine. It’s fine, but there’s nothing here worth a repeat visit.   Pushover plays like lukewarm leftovers of Double Indemnity, complete with Fred MacMurray going from good guy to rogue cop over a pretty dame. Where Pushover really stumbles is in its inability to generate chemistry between Novak and MacMurray. The central conceit is that Novak’s a gangster’s moll seduces his cop into bumping off her hoodlum boyfriend, stealing his recent robbery earnings, and running off into the sunset. Novak’s beauty goes a long way towards selling the premise, but she seems awkwar” read more
