Classified as a “B” movie, The Narrow Margin rises above its “B” label and shines as a great example of film noir from the early 1950s. Directed by Richard Fleischer and starring the “gravel voiced, stoney faced & grizzled looking actor” Charles McGraw, Marie Windsor and Jacqueline White it tells the story of a woman planning to testify against the mob that must be protected against her assassins on the train trip from Chicago to Los Angeles. Remade in 1990 with Gene Hackman and Anne Archer. The original is generally accepted as a superior film. Well, Bob and I sure enjoyed it!
