Revisit: The Sniper



A Columbia Pictures release 1952

Directed by Edward Dmytryk

Writing credits:
Edna Anhalt (story)
Edward Anhalt (story)
Harry Brown

Rejected by women all his life, a loner with a high-power rifle starts on a murder spree.

This black and white B-crime noir from the early fifties remains fun depsite it's heavy pro-institutionalization reform sentiments. It also eerily echos that recent D.C. Sniper case. If you're a fan of crime films, it's worth checking out.
