2:00 a.m. Eastern-- "The Tall Target" D i c k Powell, Paula Raymond, Adolph Menjou, Ruby Dee, Marshall Thompson, Katherine Warren, Lief Erickson, Will Geer, Florence Bates, Barbara Billingsley
Sight unseen, but this historical thriller sounds very good. Respected film noir director Anthony Mann depicts the frantic efforts by a New York City policeman (Powell), trying to prevent Lincoln's assassination while en route by train to his Second Inaugural. Based on the Baltimore Plot.
Powell had briefly guarded the President once during his career, and was very much impressed. When he learns of an assassination plot, neither his superiors nor other authorities are convinced and none will help. So at great risk he undertakes the guardian role himself...
Love: train movies, suspense, history, great directors like Anthony Mann, anything to do with Lincoln, D i c k Powell, Ruby Dee. A must-record!
