TCM's Film Noir of the Week returns Sunday, January 7 at 10 am ET. This week's feature is Red Light (1949). It stars George Raft and Virginia Mayo with Raymond Burr in another Noir "heavy" role.

Raft is a trucking business owner whose brother, a priest, is killed on the order of Burr, whom Raft had caused to be sent to prison.

I read in a film noir book that George Raft "couldn't act." Presumably, this is because Raft tended to give the same characterization in every film.
