On the whole, the MGM B product of the 1950s contained some of the studio’s best-ever “small” pictures. Filmed on location in the Louisana swamplands, Cry of the Hunted boils down to an extended chase, with escaped convict Vittorio Gassman as the fox and sheriff Barry Sullivan as the hound. Sullivan’s deputy William Conrad secretly hopes that Gassman will get away, so that he, Conrad, can step into his boss’ job. Polly Bergen is the requisite love interest, effectively deglamourized to fit in with her soggy surroundings. Cry of the Hunted is directed with flair by Joseph H. Lewis, who always managed to rise above the slimmest of budgets and the barest of production values.
