THE NARROW MARGIN (1952)
At only 71 minutes, THE NARROW MARGIN doesn't mess around, but still, despite the quick pace, I just couldn't stretch my imagination enough to believe that the police would allow a single cop to escort this supposedly super important witness across country by himself. Not only that, but they knowingly allow all of these armed killers on board a normal passenger train?! I call shenanigans. I understand that the 1950's is light years away from the present time, but still the story seems pretty far-fetched to me. That said, the acting and the camerawork are both good and I was mildly entertained.
THE NARROW MARGIN is not a bad film, just too improbable for me to get into.
