Returning a lost wallet gains unemployed veteran Chuck Scott a job as chauffeur to Eddie Roman, a seeming gangster whose enemies have a way of meeting violent ends. The job proves nerve-wracking, and soon Chuck finds himself pledged to help Eddie’s lovely, fearful, prisoner-wife Lorna to escape. The result leaves Chuck caught like a rat in a trap, vainly seeking a way out through dark streets. But the real chase begins when the strange plot virtually starts all over again…

“Everything about this film is surprising and I just don’t mean the plot. Cochran’s a thug but he lives in a kitsch mansion filled with marble statues and he likes to listen to classical music while Cumming’s a veteran who is also a dab hand on the piano. Perhaps the biggest surprise is just how good both these actors are. Being a gangster Cochran naturally has to have a henchman and as always Peter Lorre is superb in the part. About midway through you might start to get an idea in which direction this very strange movie is going and you may even be right…but on the other hand. Needless to say, “The Chase” has all but disappeared but if any film deserves cult status this is it. Unmissable.” -Written by MOscarbradley on
