Twists, double-crosses and political intrigue abound in this classic thriller starring the golden couple of film noir, Veronica Lake and Alan Ladd (The Blue Dahlia, This Gun For Hire). A crooked political boss, Paul Madvig (Brian Donlevy), falls for Janet Henry (Lake), daughter of a prospective Baltimore governor, and decides to mend his ways. However, when Janet s no-good brother turns up dead, Madvig s colourful past returns to haunt him as he is fingered as the likely suspect. Which of his many enemies conspired to frame him? And can he, with the assistance of right-hand man Ed Beaumont (Ladd), prove his innocence before he is sent down for murder? The earliest collaboration between Lake and Ladd, The Glass Key boasts a screenplay adapted from the novel by Dashiell Hammett (The Maltese Falcon), father of hard-boiled crime. Now appearing for the first time ever on Blu-ray in the UK, this timeless noir thriller shines like never before.
