The Pretender (1947) - 7/10. Albert Dekker plays a dodgy financier who, desperate for funds, decides to make an advantageous marriage. Only problem, the object of his desires already has a beau. So Dekker hires a hit man to eliminate his rival. Circumstances quickly shift, however, and Dekker finds himself suddenly married to his intended. Just as suddenly, he also realizes he has inadvertently placed himself in the killer's gun sight. And try as he might, there doesn't seem to be any way to cancel the contract. Hey, it's a noir world, baby! The picture's nice sense of dread is augmented by a Theremin and the high-contrast photography of John Alton. Any amazon Prime-ster can enjoy this snappy little tale here: Don 't have amazon Prime? Hey, it's a noir world, baby!

That's what you get, Drink, for not appreciating the genius of When You Read This Letter.
