The Undercover man. [Trailer] ( visu )
1 edition published in 1949 in German and held by 1 library worldwide
A group of undercover agents working for the Internal Revenue Service attempts to reveal information that would prove a top mobster guilty of tax evasion. One of a number of disparate noir films made during the 1940s that approach the subject of organized crime through the conventions of the documentary form. The nature of the unresolved murders in the film, coupled with Lewis's eclectic directing style, gives the film an episodic quality. Lewis draws heavily from a base of pure romanticism, embellished with stylistic touches of American expressionism and his own natural flare for the surreal. As in 'T-Men' and 'Naked City' much of the action is related in the style of newsreel film footage. The grotesqueness of the characters and the unorthodox nature of much of the action relates these films to noir stylistics while they maintain their documentary flavour

"Millionaire Martin Drewen, owner of Consolidated Airlines, thinks rival owner Barry Eldon's air mail scheme is too risky to invest in and urges him to sell his Independent Transcontinental Lines to him. However, at a meeting, Barry's pilots urge him not to sell out but to try to expand his own company. As Barry leaves the airport, he encounters the ravishing Renee Dupont in a taxi. That evening, Barry and Renee meet again at Victor Arnold's casino, where she works as a dancer. Meanwhile, Arnold shows Consolidated's representative his hideout. There, in a secret laboratory, the Russo-German scientist, Shutter, has developed a destructive ray gun. Consolidated's chief accepts Arnold's plan to build a full-scale ray gun, which will then be used to destroy their competitors' airplanes. With Shutter at the controls, the ray gun destroys one of Barry's airplanes. Meanwhile, two government men suspect what is happening and order Barry to ground his airplanes, but not before another airplane is destroyed. Barry decides to bet the airline's survival on a new speed plane with which he will try to beat the transcontinental record. Meanwhile, Tiny Davis, a reporter friend of Barry's, discovers Arnold's hideout and investigates, then tells Barry. A phone number Tiny noticed on the wall leads them to Arnold's casino, where Barry finds a map of his airline's routes and the bills for the devices required to build Shutter's ray gun. Renee discovers Arnold's and Drewen's collaboration and warns Barry of their plot to kill him. Renee pretends to flee with Arnold on an airplane, which unknown to him, is piloted by Barry. Barry forces Arnold to point out Shutter's truck on the road below. He then dives at the truck, bombing and destroying it. Meanwhile, Lewis has convinced the famous aviator, Wiley Post, to join him in flying the speed plane in Barry's place. After Drewen is captured, Renee accompanies Barry to Washington to sign a new contract"--AFI catalog, 1931-1940
