Brazilian director Alberto Cavalcanti (a self-proclaimed ‘surrealist with a tendency towards realism’) followed a successful run at Ealing Studios with this British noir starring Trevor Howard as Clem Morgan, an ex-RAF man who, having slipped into a life of petty crime, finds himself framed for a murder he didn’t commit. From prison Clem plots his escape--and his revenge. A tight thriller shot in brooding black-and-white by Otto Heller, They Made Me a Fugitive is a brutal story of desperate times in post-war London.
