I saw Raw Deal, a minor film noir, on the Criterion Channel. It's directed by Anthony Mann and has some pleasures to it. It has some strong noirish visuals and an interesting structure. Half the film is told from the viewpoint of and narrated by a prisoner's girlfriend (an excellent Claire Trevor, but when is she not). The other half is told from an objective viewpoint, the story of the con's escape and his going on the run with his girlfriend and his social worker. A satisfying time.
