"On Dangerous Ground"
(Nicholas Ray & Ida Lupino [uncredited], 1951, 82 min, USA, English, B&W, 35mm)
Sadistic detective Robert Ryan is sent upstate and joins a manhunt for a local killer through a desolate snowy landscape. But while searching with the victim's embittered father Ward Bond, he finds hope in a remote cottage inhabited by blind, selfless Ida Lupino (who co-directed while Ray was ill off set). A poignant study of loneliness and perhaps the greatest snow-bound film noir.
