The Man I Love

Post by Bruce R on Sun Jan 08, 2017 6:49 pm

The 1947 noir THE MAN I LOVE stars Ida Lupino, Robert Alda, Andrea King, Martha Vickers, Bruce Bennett and Alan Hale.

Ida "Don't mess with me" Lupino takes a job as a singer in Robert Alda's seedy Santa Monica night club. Lupino ignores Alda's advances to cultivate a romance with pianist Bruce Bennett. Alda uses his connections with the Mob to break up the relationship--and also, hopefully, to break up Bennett into little pieces.

It's an OK, enjoyable noir, but nothing special, getting a 2.5 from Keaney and a 6.9 from IMDb.

Most notably, THE MAN I LOVE supposedly served as the inspiration for Martin Scorcese's 1977 NEW YORK, NEW YORK.
