Walk a Crooked Mile is a 1948 anti-communism, Cold War film noir crime film, directed by Gordon Douglas, starring Dennis O'Keefe and Louis Hayward.


Soon after solid leads come to light about a communist spy ring infiltrating the Lakeview Laboratory of Nuclear Physics, a Southern California atomic research center, FBI Agent Dan O'Hara (Dennis O'Keefe) teams up with Scotland Yard Detective Philip Grayson (Louis Hayward) to hunt down the perpetrators responsible for the leak, and at least one of the scientists at the nuclear lab is suspected to be involved in the clandestine, espionage operation.



The film was originally titled FBI vs Scotland Yard but this was changed at the request of J. Edgar Hoover.[1]


When the film was released, The New York Times film critic, Bosley Crowther, while giving the film mixed review, wrote well of the screenplay, "No use to speak of the action or the acting. It's strictly routine. But the plot is deliberately sensational."[2]

The staff at Variety gave the film a favorable review, writing, "Action swings to San Francisco and back to the southland, punching hard all the time under the knowledgeable direction of Gordon Douglas. On-the-site filming of locales adds authenticity. George Bruce has loaded his script with nifty twists that add air of reality to the meller doings in the Bertram Millhauser story. Dialog is good and situations believably developed, even the highly contrived melodramatic finale. Documentary flavor is forwarded by Reed Hadley's credible narration chore."[3]
