The Hunted is a 1948 American crime film noir directed by Jack Bernhard, and starring Preston Foster, Belita, Pierre Watkin and Edna Holland.[1]


A policeman sends his girlfriend to prison and won't leave her alone when she gets out.



Critical response[edit]

Film critic Leonard Maltin said of the film, "Low-budget noir has a hard-boiled sheen but a prosaic, overlong treatment; it even finds time for one of Belita's ice skating routines!"[2]
