    A lesser known dark gem from Lancaster's noir period, I Walk Alone is a melancholy study of betrayal and male loneliness. Byron Haskin's debut feature offers Lancaster’s ex-con returning wide-eyed from an unjust prison term. An emblem of the old world petty gangster, he has been left behind by the new corporate criminal – embodied by his cunning ex-partner played with feline unctuousness by Kirk Douglas. The film's moody allegory of a changing world order points more to 1930s French poetic realism than the hard-bitten postwar American crime drama, a quality captured in the flickering moth-in-flame intensity of Lizbeth Scott's whispered lisp and the somnambulist sadness of Wendell Corey as Lancaster's ill-fated brother.
