A Theory

The amazing face of Jack Lambert in THE ENFORCER (1951), directed by Bretaigne Windust (with bits by Raoul Walsh).

History (and the IMDb) tells us that Lambert stopped acting in 1967, the year of my birth, dying in 2002 in Carmel.

My theory is that, for from retiring, he was actually HOLDING OUT for more romantic leading man type parts.

  1. Aha! – Great to see someone else caught the film on TV this week! (Probably the highlight of this months schedules!)

  2. Weak start, then the flashback stuff is AMAZING, and it picks up considerably. Great photography by Hitchcock’s man Robert Burks.
