The Informer (1935)

3 1/2 Stars (out of 4)

Rat Broke

By Jeffrey M. Anderson

With The Informer (1935) John Ford won his first of four Best Director Oscars. Likewise, Victor McLaughlin won Best Actor as Gypo Nolan, a down-on-his-luck Irish hood who turns in his best friend for a 20-pound reward.

The film's gorgeous black-and-white cinematography -- with its streams of fog and sparkling cobblestones -- gave audiences a new glimpse as to the potential artistry of cinema. After seeing this film, Jean Renoir reportedly once said, "I learned so much today ... I learned how to not move my camera."
