JIGSAW (1949) Directed by Fletcher Markle

 A real curiosity. Made by a group of film-makers with vaguely left wing politics and anti-fascist intentions this badly made, acted and scripted political noir is, frankly boring despite a good opening and a lively end. It drags dreadfully and nobody ever seems to be able to define what it is really about. The only fun is checking out the unbilled appearances by Dietrich, Fonda, Garfield and Merideth (among others). Sometimes good intentions are not enough.
