Print

In film noir’s prime is 1944’s Ministry of Fear (adapted from Graham Greene’s novel). Directed by Fritz Lang and starring Ray Milland and Majorie Reynolds, the drama starts out with a man who’s won a cake at the village fair. What ensues is entanglement in an international spy ring and accusations of murder, naturally. Tonight the Heights Theatre is featuring a showing of the flick said to be “a masterpiece of suspense.”
