Product Description

Man Afraid (1957)


 Harry Keller


 Herb Meadow, Daniel B. Ullman (story)


 George Nader, Phyllis Thaxter, Tim Hovey
Man Afraid stars George Nader as a clergyman serving a big-city slum district. He is forced to kill a young hoodlum in self-defense; the police are willing to forgive him of the killing, but the victim's psychotic father (Harold J. Stone) is not so pliable. The father threatens not only to wreak vengeance on Nader, but on Nader's family as well. The minister is torn apart by the practical necessity of protecting his family and the pacifistic edicts of his religious calling. Man Afraid is a tight, claustrophobic melodrama that was inappropriately filmed in CinemaScope; consequently, it tends to play better on TV than it did in theatres.

  1. A Taut Noir 3 Star Review

    Posted by on Dec 13th 2021

    George Nader, Phyllis Thaxter, Tim Hovey star in this enjoyable, forgotten film noir. Director Harry Keller's earlier noirs as a film editor were Moonrise (1948) and The Red Menace (1949). Child actor Tim Nolan is in the film. I interviewed Tim Nolan for my forthcoming book Cries in the Night: Children in Film Noir (BearManor Media 2022). Robert Strom
