Make Haste to Live. 1954. USA. Directed by William A. Seiter. With Dorothy McGuire, Stephen McNally. DCP. 90 min.

One of Hollywood’s most accomplished comedy directors, William A. Seiter turned his hand to thrillers near the end of his film career, most notably with this upscale Republic production starring Dorothy McGuire (Gentleman’s Agreement) as the owner of a small-town newspaper in New Mexico whose hidden past resurfaces in the form of her mobster ex-husband (Steven McNally), freshly released from prison and out for revenge. Seiter’s appreciative and insightful direction of actors again comes to the fore.
