Aro Recommended Thieves' Highway


USA 1949, 94 minutes
Dir. Jules Dassin
Rating: [PG]
Genres: Classics, Suspense/Crime / Film Noir


Aroview: One of dir. Dassin's early noir triumphs, this has Conte seeking to avenge his father's maiming at the hands of a corrupt Californian fruit marketeer.

The tough world of long-haul truck drivers provides an excellent action quotient as do the carnal attractions of Cortese. Finally hinging on its haunting atmosphere of the life, futility and death, with the boondocks of San Francisco providing a brilliantly detailed setting.
