"From the Edge of the Ledge, He Defied Them All!"
Film noir, a classic film style of the 40s and 50s, is noted for its dark themes, stark camera angles and high-contrast lighting. Comprising many of Hollywood s finest films, film noir tells realistic stories about crime, mystery, femmes fatales and conflict.This compelling suspense drama spends its time with a tormented young man (Richard Basehart) as he teeters on a New York hotel s 15th floor window ledge, deciding whether or not to jump. Paul Douglas plays a traffic cop, the first officer on the scene, and through his gentle, compassionate talk, he becomes the only one the man on the ledge trusts. He certainly doesn t trust his mother (Agnes Moorehead) or ex-fianc e (Barbara Bel Geddes). The crowd below is mesmerized and for some, the fourteen hours that follow will change their lives forever. This film is notable for the film debut of Grace Kelly in a small role.System Requirements:Running Time: 92 minutesFormat: DVD MOVIE

"Well-made suspense drama...  Leonard Maltin's Movie & Video Guide

Editor's Note
A lesser-known gem from 1951, FOURTEEN HOURS stars a young Richard Basehart as Robert, a malcontent who decides to end it all by jumping from the ledge of a skyscraper. Officer Charlie Dunnigan (Paul Douglas) happens by and notices him, and spends the next 14 hours rising to the difficult task of convincing Robert not to throw his life away. Meanwhile, in an adjacent building, a young woman (Grace Kelly in her first role) reconsiders her divorce, and two people in the street below (Jeffrey Hunter and Debra Paget) meet and discover a common bond. Barbara Bel Geddes (VERTIGO) plays the potential suicide's girlfriend, and Ossie Davis (SHE HATE ME, THE L WORD) and Brian Keith (THE PARENT TRAP) also appear.

Professional Reviews

Goatdog's Movies 9 of 10
The film's finest moments come at the very beginning. New York City is just waking up; street sweepers clean out the gutters, and a traffic cop notes down the license numbers of illegally parked cars. A hotel waiter brings room service up to a room, in which a nervous-looking man seems startled by him. The waiter places his tray down on the table, and when he turns around, the guest has disappeared - out onto the ledge, it turns out. There's no dialogue; the only sounds are those of the city, until a scream from a woman across the street breaks the silence. - Michael W. Phillips, Jr.
