Counter-Attack / Zotan Korda (1945). Columbia Pictures. A taut thriller shot in noir style that has Paul Muni as a Russian military officer along with another fighter (Marguerite Chapman) trapped in the cellar of a bombed out building with several German soldiers. Muni has the firearm to keep the Germans at bay, but there is the need to stay awake and there is the uncertainty of who is trying to dig them out – the Russians or the Germans. In the hands of veteran director Korda and genius cinematographer James Wong Hong, the dark crowded underground space is never less than cinematic. I hadn’t known of this film before before I saw it on TCM.
Good one, though I'm questioning whether many films listed here are truly Noir. The 1939 The Roaring 20s has been mentioned by one poster and I can't see that as a noir; more like a gangster picture or, more broadly, a crime film, in which World War is a factor in its story and if the topic here was "Gangster Films With Wartime Settings And/Or Theme", I'd agree.
