Odd Man Out

film / 7.20pm / Talk­ing Pic­tures

This gem from the Talk­ing Pic­tures trea­sure trove of old Bri­tish movies stars James Ma­son as an IRA man with a bul­let in his side on the run from the Bri­tish au­thor­i­ties on the streets of Belfast. Di­rected in 1947 by the bril­liant Carol Reed, two years be­fore The Third man, it has a sim­i­lar semi-doc­u­men­tary feel, highly stylised blackand-white looks and, once it gets over its slow start, gives Ma­son one of the best roles of his ca­reer.

James Ma­son is on the run
