Episode 440: The Big Combo (1955)

Guest Co-Hosts: Jedidiah Ayres, Brian Hoyle

We kick-off Noirvember 2019 with a look at Joseph H. Lewis’s The Big Combo (1955). Written by , the film stars Cornel Wilde as Lt. Leonard Diamond. He’s a cop with a soft spot for Susan Lowell (Jean Wallace), the main squeeze of Mr. Brown (Richard Conte). Diamond and Brown play a strange game of cat and mouse as Diamond seems to pursue justice while Brown is a psychopathic thug who thinks he’s anything but.

Jedidiah Ayres and Brian Hoyle join Mike to discuss the film and posit just what that big combo of the title can mean.
