The Black Parachute (1944) DVD-R

Be the first to review this product

Quick Overview

Starring John Carradine, Osa Massen, Larry Parks, Jeanne Bates,

Jonathan Hale

Directed by Lew Landers



Print: black/white

Runtime: 68 min.

Genre: adventure

Print Quality: B



Two years before attaining superstardom in The Jolson Story, Larry Parks

essayed the leading role the Columbia wartime meller The Black

Parachute. Parks is cast as American paratrooper Michael Lindley, who

drops behind enemy lines under cover of night to rescue the deposed

king (Jonathan Hale) of a mythical Balkan nation. Disguising himself as a

slain Naxi colonel, Lindley shows up at the German occupational

headquarters, where he manages to fool the Heydrich-like General Von

Rodenbach (John Carradine). The women in the case are German spy

Marya Orloff (Osa Massen) and beautiful resistance fighter Olga (Jeanne

Bates). Black Parachute was unconvincing even in 1944, but director Lew

Landers kept things moving so quickly that no one had time to dwell upon

the film's logic gaps.
