The Captive City (1952)
A private investigator informs small-town newspaper editor Jim Austin (John Forsythe) of corrupt local activity. When the investigator is killed, Austin believes it’s an act of revenge, and his own detective work reveals a network of gambling and corruption. Crime boss Murray Sirak (Victor Sutherland) controls the whole town, including the police. Sirak answers to his own boss, “Mr. Big,” who is seemingly untouchable, but Austin risks his life to expose the truth.

… Wise has made a latter day excellent film noir drama with “The Captive City”. The camera work is fantastic as it frames the subjects in a very involving and immediate way. Wise is one director with a wonderful eye for composition and he certainly chose correctly in using black and white in which to present it. You will not help but notice the depth of field in every shot, a technique learned from the great Orson Welles and augmented with the use of the special Hoag lenses whose focal length seemed to go on forever. Though not quite as overall involving as “The Phenix City Story” it is still quite good and highly recommended (in no way an embarrassment over half a century later). Wise was one of the finest directors of any time and even with a limited budget he proves it here. Also, of note is the introduction of young Martin Milner, who we would later come to love in the TV-series “Route 66” (reruns for me), as the Forsythe’s staff photographer.
