Just thought of a fairly good film noir from the late 60's with Louis Jordan, Mary Tyler Moore and Wilfred Hyde-White IT is called Run a Crooked Mile and is pretty suspenseful. Two great Film Noirs that are not well-known are with James Mason are The Night Has Eyes (about 2 British schoolteachers stranded on the Yorkshire moors and forced to take refuge in a spooky mansion during a storm) and The Reckless Moment with James Mason and Joan Bennett. How rare does it get? Mason, the blackmailer, falls in love with his victim, Joan Bennett who would do anything to protect her family.
Some other British Film Noirs include Corridor of Mirrors with Eric Portman and Edana Romney. A beautiful socialite meets a handsome and reclusive man in a nightclub. When she visits his huge old-fashioned mansion, she finds he is obsessed with the past and is bent on finding the reincarnation of a 16th century femme fatale whom he has admired from a painting, The young woman seems to match the description. Soon she is invited to a fancy dress ball at the mansion. Murder and mayhem occur with little clues for the police. After the woman marries a successful barrister, she receives blackmail letters about the murder and her association with the mysterious man who would rather be executed than to discover the identity of the real killer! .
