Description
Fritz Lang directs this masterpiece of American film noir with a brutal efficiency and his trademark visual flare. Stalwart leading man Glenn Ford plays an unscrupulous cop looking into possible corruption and gangland ties within the police department. When a car bomb meant for him kills his wife in front of his eyes, Ford abandons his strict code of ethics and becomes an instrument of revenge, using any means available - including a spurned gangster's moll, played by Gloria Grahame - to get to the truth. Lee Marvin also makes an early appearance in this high-water mark for the noir genre.

        Comments about this product:

        Organized crime against a good cop with a scene stealing plot all make The Big Heat a great movie. Glenn Ford is fantastic, Gloria Grahame and Lee Marvin play great supporting roles. Glenn's wife is killed in an explosion meant for him. He becomes dedicated in finding her killer. He even leaves the force to look for the killers. After a life to death confrontation, Ford is convinced his place in on the police force, so he returns with some satisfaction. This movie is a classic film noir.

            The Big Heat has an excellent story line and plot.
            The DVD starts with a bang and is action to the
            very end. Character portrayals are excellent and
            in-line with the plot.

              The Big Heat is action from beginning to end. The
              subtitles help ... some instances of whispering.
              The number one Glenn Ford movie and detective movie
              of all time. I watch it often, never seem to tire
              of watching.
