Very nice German romantic movie.

White Heat (1949)
Nice story, cinematography and good actors especially James Cagney. It was interesting to see what methods and technical innovations of that time the police was using.

A film noir about an alcoholic. Ray Milland was very convincing in his role and deservedly won the Academy Award.

The highlights of this movie are the beautiful Lana Turner and the nice film noir typical night shots. But the story is weak.
