Product Description

The Scarf (1951)

Director:

Ewald André Dupont

Writers:

Isadore Goldsmith (story), E.A. Rolfe (story)

Stars:

John Ireland, Mercedes McCambridge, James Barton
 
Mercedes McCambridge plays a singing waitress named Cash-and-Carry Connie in The Scarf. This alone should be enough to keep the viewer's interest, but in fact the film has much to please the eye and ear. John Ireland stars as John Barrington, an escapee from a institution for the criminally insane. Actually, Barrington is not a looney tune, but instead the victim of an insidious plot orchestrated by a clever murderer. The only person who believes Barrington's story is turkey-farmer Ezra Thompson (James Barton), who hides Our Hero from the authorities. Things really get hopping when the aforementioned Connie unwittingly provides the clue that will prove Barrington's innocence. Co-starring in The Scarf is Emlyn Williams as an all-too-cooperative psychiatrist. The film was directed by E. A. Dupont, whose American career never quite scaled the heights of his years in the German film industry.

  1. Unique Noir 4 Star Review

    Posted by on Aug 15th 2017

    The product itself, the DVD, is like all Zeus DVD's: perfect!

    The rating for the movie would not be 4 stars. Maybe 2.5 to 3 stars. Tough to rate this noiresque film. I like Mercedes McCambridge. A talented, fairly versatile (tends to play a bit tough with the aura of a butch dyke), usually give her 4 stars. Coming to appreciate John Ireland. He's great in the hidden gem noir Open Secret. James Barton as Ezra Thompson (the turkey farmer) is superb! The story is unique/odd. I watched it till the end, but it is no classic. McCambridge "sings" on par with Ida Lupino's "singing" in Road House. If you go for emotional impact over being on-key, and in-tune, you'll love it. Worth viewing for those who like the off-beat, quirky noirs.
