“Tension” should creep its way into unseen or forgotten noir gems on its way to even better lists. Just because it stars Richard Basehart and not Glenn Ford, Audrey Totter and not Gloria Grahame and a non-dancing, dramatic Cyd Charisse means that it shouldn’t be considered as a taut, edgy thriller, and with the works.
