Long before becoming director of two successful musicals (West Side Story and Smiles and Tears), Robert Wise had a noir stage at the RKO, where he proved to be especially gifted for the genre. This pack contains the titles that the director shot for the studio at the beginning of his career, including Blood on the Moon, with which Wise brought the noir to the western.
