(Richard Quine, 1954)
Release date: 25 March 2024
Standard Edition Blu-ray

Richard Quine (Drive a Crooked Road) directs Pushover, a film noir classic featuring a top-notch cast including Fred MacMurray (Remember the Night), Kim Novak (5 Against the House), Phil Carey (The Long Gray Line), and Dorothy Malone (Convicted).

Lona (Novak) is the girlfriend of a bank robber suspected of murder, and detectives Sheridan (MacMurray) and McAllister (Carey) are assigned to stake out her apartment, where each becomes dangerously fixated – Sheridan with Lona, and McAllister on her neighbour, Ann (Malone). Then Lona makes Sheridan an offer... to kill her lover and run away with her.

With its themes of surveillance and obsession prefiguring Novak’s role in Alfred Hitchcock’s Vertigo, Pushover is a triumph of suspense, and an acknowledged influence on Jean-Luc Godard’s Breathless.
