Summer Under the Stars ~ Rex Ingram

As a kid I was deeply moved by Rex Ingram’s sympathetic portrayal of Jim the runaway slave in the 1939 MGM production of The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn starring Mickey Rooney.
As an adult I was impressed by his portrayal of the unbending father Joe Lucasta in the United Artists 1958 film Anna Lucasta starring Eartha Kitt. In my quest to tie as many of the Summer of the Stars to Film Noir I see that Rex also appeared in a Film Noir. The United Artists 1944 film noir titled Dark Waters co-starring Merle Oberon, and Franchot Tone.
