Noir Saturday: Fear

Here’s tonight’s noir, Fear.

Fear is a 1946 low-budget film noir directed by Alfred Zeisler. The film is considered a loose adaptation of Fyodor Dostoyevsky‘s 1866 novel Crime and Punishment.

A broke medical student who’s in desperate need of tuition money sells everything he owns to a dishonest professor. When the student’s scholarship is suddenly taken from him, he flies into a rage and kills the professor, whom he feels is responsible for his situation. His life then begins to improve, but as the student grows more reckless, police suspicion continues to grow.

Check it out tonight on TCM @ 11pm CST or 9AM CST. Have a great night.
