(Lew Landers, US 1953, 70 min.)
In 3-D! A lean thriller about lobotomized amnesia and tough-guy gangsters, Man in the Dark was the first major studio picture released in 3-D. Starring noir standbys Edmond O’Brien and Audrey Totter, Man in the Dark is a beguiling blend of medical drama, fever dream, and crime saga. The rollicking climax shows both 3-D and Ocean Park’s seedy Sea Serpent roller coaster to their best effects.
