The Narrow Margin (1952): Opening Credits

The Narrow Margin (1952)
It is a shame the brilliant shot used for the opening credits of The Narrow Margin (1952), by great noir director, Richard Fleischer, is obscured by the credits. In a single elegantly paced panning shot, cinematographer, George E. Diskant, establishes the noir atmosphere of the movie.

Fleischer’s major noirs:

Bodyguard (1948)
Follow Me Quietly (1949)
Trapped (1949)
The Clay Pigeon (1949)
Armored Car Robbery (1950)
The Narrow Margin (1952)

Diskant’s noir credits include:

Kansas City Confidential (1952)
On Dangerous Ground (1952)
The Racket (1951)
They Live by Night (1948)
Riffraff (1947)
