The Big Combo

Updated: Mar 25

Those scene stills on my website are from films noirs, of course. Including some from one of my personal favorites, The Big Combo, 1955. The police lieutenant under the bright light is Cornel Wilde, under pressure from mobster Brian Donlevy. The lieutenant’s partner is the marvelous Jay Adler. The girl in this picture, though, is Jean Wallace - married to Cornel Wilde at the time - caught in an opening foot chase with some wonderful photography by John Alton. Not more than 30 seconds of film, not a car or a helicopter in sight and bang on the money. Director is Joseph H Lewis.
