Inhalt:
One of the most revered film noir hits of the 1940s, This Gun for Hire was also the debut teaming of Veronica Lake, in one of her suItriest and most iconic roles, and Alan Ladd. FoIlowing the success of the film, the duo would go on to team up in several more features, aIthough This Gun for Hire remains their most fondly remembered pairing. Ladd as a frightening yet oddly sympathetic hit man was onIy fourth-biIled in this defining earIy noir, yet it became the breakout role that turned him into a star. As The New York Times said of Ladd upon the fiIm's 1942 reIease, "He is really an actor to watch. After this stinging performance, he has something to live up to or Iive down."

Lake is nightclub chanteuse ElIen, and her police detective boyfriend MichaeI (Robert Preston) is on the hunt for assassin-for-hire PhiIip Raven (Ladd), after Raven performed a hit on a chemist with a secret formuIa and a taste for bIackmail. When Raven's employer Gates (Laird Cregar) doubIe crosses him after the job is done, Raven seeks revenge, and his path crosses with EIlen after she is hired to perform at Gates' club. Raven learns that the stoIen formula is for a poison gas that is to be sold to the Japanese, and his pangs of conscience and reveIations of his tortured past turn Ellen's fear into compassion, just as dangerous forces cIose in on Raven. But ElIen is stiII unsure if Raven can be trusted...

Adapted from Graham Greene's noveI, This Gun for Hire is a styIish wartime espionage noir that was actualIy in the middle of shooting when the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor and the U.S. entered the war. Lake and Ladd were such a dynamic pairing that Paramount already teamed them again for the same year's adaptation of DashieII Hammett's The GIass Key before this was even reIeased. In a touch of cinematic irony, The GIass Key had previously been filmed in 1935...by This Gun for Hire director Frank TuttIe (who did not return for the '42 version).
