The Chance of a Lifetime (1943) DVD-R

Be the first to review this product

Quick Overview

Starring Chester Morris, Erik Rolf, Jeanne Bates, Richard Lane, George E.

Stone, Lloyd Corrigan

Directed by William Castle



Print: black/white

Runtime: 65 min.

Genre: drama

Print Quality: B



This lively entry in the "Boston Blackie" series finds Blackie (Chester

Morris) acting as spiritual leader of a group of ex-convicts. The plan is for

the former inmates to redeem themselves by working in a defense plant.

Only problem: some of the cons (Douglas Fowley, Arthur Hunnicutt et. al.)

have no intention of going straight and are planning a major robbery.

Predictably, suspicion falls upon the only honest one (Erik Rolf) in the

bunch -- and upon Blackie, who is himself a previous "guest of the state."

Chance of a Lifetime represents the first directorial effort of William

Castle, who later claimed that, saddled with a hopeless project, he made

the film "work" by re-arranging the reels in the editing room (it sure

doesn't look like it was put together that way!)
