Shades Of Grey: T-Men

Knockout images from an indelible noir.

Two treasury men slip undercover to expose a lethal counterfeiting operation.

Dutch angles, deep focus, and hard faces linger long after the end credits roll.

T-Men‘s cinematographer John Alton once said, “I could see in the dark.”

T-Men‘s die-hard agents: duty before self.  Justice will be served.


Anthony Mann directed T-Men in 1947.  Find it on TCM, Netflix, and DVD.
