The Black Book
- movie Description
The Black Book, also known as Reign of Terror, is a 1949 film noir. Maximilian Robespierre(Richard Basehart, Moby Dick)wishes to become dictator over France, but this is feared by many of the underground resistance, for he rules with a torturous iron fist. He has the ability to work over a crowd with his words which have a power to manipulate. It's currently taken him to his lofty position, but gaining total dictatorship is a dream that would certainly lead to a mass destruction of anyone who even comes near threatening his role as ruler over all. He has a book of death containing names he plans to eliminate when under power as dictator and this black book is the key to his downfall. Finding out what he plans to do to those who were behind him would certainly overthrow Robespierre. That's where freedom fighter Charles D'Aubigny (Robert Cummings) comes into play. He will go undercover to find the book and get close to Robespierre.moreless
