The Thief ★★ 1952

An American commits treason and is overcome by guilt. Novel because there is not one word of dialogue, though the gimmmick can't sustain the ordinary story. A product of the Communist scare of the 1950s, it tends to be pretentious and melodramatic. 84m/B VHS, DVD . Ray Milland, Rita Gam, Martin Gabel, Harry Bronson, John McKutcheon; D: Russell Rouse; W: Russell Rouse, Clarence Greene; C: Sam Leavitt; M: Herschel Burke Gilbert.
