The amusement business.

The Chase (1946) - 6.5/10.
A great everyman hero who's got this great and mysterious smile to complement the fact that he has nothing interesting to say, a great villain with a ridiculous vice, and Peter Lorre makes a great Peter Lorre. The first hour is solid, but what I thought was heading into an interesting villainous act (fucking with the hero's head) turns into just some of that psychiatric shit that makes for boring mystery movies.
