      j f If you're an enthusiast of the sassy skirt genre, you'll enjoy it. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 09/24/23 Full Review Tom M Really bad amnesia movie. Hard to follow from one scene to next. Rutherford is good for the first 20 minutes or so and then becomes unimportant. Jane Greer (in her first credited role) shows up late and gives a hint of what she may become capable of. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 05/05/20 Full Review Audience Member It starts off OK but deteriorates into a screwball comedy. Very lightweight. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member Compact little crime drama tightly directed by Mann with Ann feisty in the lead. Conway isn't the most dynamic of leading men but gets the job done. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review dave j Wednesday, July 13, 2011 (1945) Two O'Clock Courage THRILLER/ MYSTERY/ COMEDY Another conventional amnesiac film starring Tom Conway as the victim who is trying to recollect everything that has happened that lead up to his memory loss with a help of a femal cab driver played by Ann Rutherford with at the same time murder! Out of several films made on people who has loss of memory- this one is one of the weakest, but because I like my films to have happy endings, I didn't mind! Not better than Hitchcock's "Spellbound" but like this film on the same same level as "Charade"! 3 out of 4 Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member An early noir by Anthony Mann that follows an amnesiac who awakens to find that he may have committed murder. The opening sequence is beautifully down as he watch the amnesiac walk down the streets late at night. The atmospheric fog and slow tracking show make up a beautiful composition. The film as a whole features a few scenes with some great compositions but overall its a rather middle of the road film for Michael Mann. The film has an interesting mix of tone as its very serious mysterious film but also features lots of comedic moments which sometimes work and sometimes dont, leaving it to almost feel like a comedy at times. This mix of drama and comedy was a little off putting for me at times but the film still has a lot of merit. For example, the film deals with social class as well, being that the amnesiac happens to be from a higher class yet the taxi driver whom helps him find out about past comes from a lower class. As the film progresses Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/17/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
