Continuing my exploration of Nicholas Ray's films (which began last year), today I tackle the extremely hard-to-find Run for Cover, which stars James Cagney, John Derek, Viveca Lindfors, and he of the eponymous Academy Award for humanitarianism, Jean Hersholt. Peculiarly, I do this from my regular perch at Wide Screen's DVD column. I say "peculiarly" because this film is not yet available on DVD. But I hope to call attention to why it (as well as many other Ray movies I'll discuss here at Cinema Viewfinder in the future) deserves to be released on DVD.
