Fox Film Noir in August - Artwork added

Fox Home Entertainment have announced three titles as part of their Fox Film Noir range for 29th August 2006. Priced at $14.98 SRP each are…

Fourteen Hours (1951) - This compelling suspense drama spends its time with a tormented young man (Richard Basehart) as he teeters on a New York hotel’s 15th floor window ledge, deciding whether or not to jump. Paul Douglas plays a traffic cop, the first officer on the scene, and through his gentle, compassionate talk, he becomes the only one the man on the ledge trusts. He certainly doesn’t trust his mother (Agnes Moorehead) or ex-fiancée (Barbara Bel Geddes). The crowd below is mesmerized and for some, the fourteen hours that follow will change their lives forever. This film is notable for the film debut of Grace Kelly in a small role.

Shock (1946) - This post-World War II suspense thriller sets off an emotional roller coaster after the psychologically fragile wife of a POW (Anabel Shaw) witnesses a brutal murder from a hotel window while waiting to be reunited with her husband (Frank Latimer). By the time he arrives, she’s nearly comatose with shock. The hotel’s psychiatrist (Vincent Price) is called in to help. But just as she begins to recognize him as the murderer she saw, he realizes she was a witness to his crime. So he arranges to take her to his private sanitarium where he and his nurse-mistress (Lynn Bari) can insure that no one takes the young woman’s ravings seriously and they can secretly administer enough "treatment" to silence her forever. Meanwhile, her husband and the police begin to suspect that everything is not as it seems and as they get closer to the truth, this complex mystery takes some unexpected twists!

Vicki (1953) - Jean Peters stars as New York cover girl Vicki Lynn, whose fame came fast and hard, and so does her murder. Her press agent Steve Christopher (Elliott Reid) and her sister Jill (Jeanne Crain) are placed under the microscope by relentless police lieutenant Ed Cornell (Richard Boone), who derives sadistic pleasure from interrogating them. And there is no lack of other suspects in Vicki’s death, despite the fact that Jill found Steve standing over the body. Suspense builds as the characters remember moments in Vicki’s lightning rise to the top of café society. Max Showalter plays Steve’s columnist pal, Carl Betz is a police detective and Aaron Spelling operates the telephone switchboard at Vicki’s hotel.
