Volume two in our series of Film Noir double-bills features three stars better known for their TV personas – Robert Cummings ("Love That Bob"), June Lockhart (the mom on "Lassie") and Hugh Beaumont (the 'Beave's' dad on "Leave it to Beaver") – but whose hard-boiled performances here are nothing like those TV characters. "The Chase" (1946) has Robert Cummings playing an ex-GI who by chance is hired to be the chauffeur for a ruthless gangster. He is soon drawn into a twisted nightmarish plot involving the gangster's unfaithful wife and a charge for a murder he did not commit. The second feature, "Bury Me Dead" (1947), starts off with a bang when a women (June Lockhart) shows up as a mourner at her own funeral! With the help of her family lawyer (Hugh Beaumont) the women begins an investigation to uncover who's really buried in her place and who wanted her dead in the first place. Features cinematography by John Alton. Two film noir gems for the price of one!
