Dames Get Along (1954)
Eddie Constantine is Lemmy Caution in his second or third go round at the character.
Here Caution is on the trail of a women who may or may not be mixed up in a blackmail scheme. Its a semi-complicated affair that Lemmy solves more with his fists then his brains.
Its an okay Euro Noir that is a bit too knowing for my tastes-Eddie and some of the other cast members pretty much look in the camera and wink. Constantine is a great actor and I could never understand why he never why he was never big here in the US. He was a fine tough guy that looked like he could do pretty much anything. To be certain he made films up to his death, but at the same time he should have been huge here in the US.
Worth a look if you're in the mood-its perfect late night fare.
