"The Crooked Web" is a film noir whose main attractions are its leads: Frank Lovejoy, Mari Blanchard and Richard Denning. The title describes the main feature of the story, which is a web that is spun upon elaborate deceptive grounds in order to catch a criminal who had committed a crime during World War 2 and escaped prosecution by returning to America.


Director:

 Nathan Juran (as Nathan Hertz Juran)

Writer:

 Lou Breslow (story and screenplay)

Stars:

 This film starts you out thinking it's going one way but take you in an entirely different direction. I liked the film mainly for the cast, the story was full of holes. This is film noir, but not at it's best. I give this one  ★★
