film based on a novel:
BY NIGHT (1949)
(Fraley Granger) and Keechie (Cathy O’Donnell) meet – we could have a classic
boy meets girl story – but: Bowie is on the run. The police is after him and
his mates (Howard Da Silva and Jay C. Flippen). And though Keechie and Bowie
try to live the classic lovers’ dream of marriage and founding a family – the
polive doesn’t forget about Bowie..

I love this
film. It’s kind of a gloomy love story about two very young people who’s luck
doesn’t have a real chance. I love the moments when they’re together trying to
live kind of a normal life.
