<p>CRY OF THE HUNTED, 1953, Warner Bros., 80 min. Dir. Joseph H. Lewis follows obsessed prison security man Barry Sullivan, abetted by evil-tempered deputy William Conrad, as they plunge into the Louisiana bayou hunting fugitive Vittorio Gassman. Although neither can admit it, Sullivan and Gassman share many of the same inflexible ideas about personal pride and honor, and their fiery personalities suck them ever deeper into a vortex of brutality.</p> <p>LURE OF THE SWAMP, 1957, Paramount, 75 min. Comparatively unknown pulp novelist Gil Brewer, had a rep during the '50s for some of the most nihilistic, sex-driven, ultra-violent fiction this side of Jim Thompson. Director Hubert Cornfield helmed this hard-to-see, low-budget adaptation of one of Brewer’s steamy, noir bestsellers. Marshall Thompson charters his skiff for jaunts into the swamp, and his curiosity is aroused when his newest client is unusually secretive.</p>
