Pier 23 #

Released 5/11/1950

Description: Pier 23 was one of three hour-long mysteries produced by Lippert Productions for both TV and theatrical release. Every of the three movies was evenly divided into two half-hour "episodes," and every starred Hugh Beaumont as San Francisco-based amateur sleuth Dennis O'Brien. In Pier 23, O'Brien first tackles the situation of a wrestler who has died of a suspicious heart attack after refusing to lose a match. He then agrees to support a priest talk an escaped criminal into returning to prison. The film's two-part structure leads to repetition and predictability, but it's fun to watch TV's "Ward Cleaver" making like Philip Marlowe.

L'Insulte Reviews:

I live and work in Lebanon for already a decade, so I'm well accustomed to local methods and habits, frequently "justified" through common phrases of the following kind: "This is Lebanon… Only in Lebanon… Welcome to Lebanon!" In my ongoing increased attendance to film theatres, and exposure to actual repertoire, "The Insult" (original game "L'insulte", literal English translation of Arabic game "Case No. 23") (2017), was my last choice. Actually that I've seen it, I realized that it should've been the first! Namely, while another detail films from the contemporary repertoire, even those allegedly inspired by real events, are mostly saying excessively exaggerated, hard-to-believe stories, revolving around almost out-of-this-world heroes, thus flooding the A-movie store with commercial exploitism, otherwise exemplified in low-budget films, "The Insult", based on deeply insightful screenplay written by Ziad Doueiry and Joëlle Touma, and compassionately directed by the former, is richly soaked into (Lebanese) reality.What begins as an every-day incident (cited in the title) in an average Beirut neighbourhood, within mins grows into a bigger conflict between two ostensibly unreasonably stubborn personalities, and spirals out of proportion to a high-profile courtroom drama and a matter of an almost utmost national interest.What happens here is not unknown (m)anywhere else in the World. It's only that in Lebanon it has greater gravity and impact due to well-advertised, for more than half a century closely monitored, media covered multitude of regional and local political problems, ever so easy reviving and fuelling age-old animosities based on ethnic, religious and sectarian antagonisms, as well as rivalries between the autochthonous communities and migrants--whether economic immigrants, or internally and externally displaced refugees--ergo plethora of political, economic and humanitarian challenges.Actors did a nice job, and although sometimes method to eloquent and theatrical, especially, not unexpectedly, lawyers in the courtroom scenes, at least they deliever ample historical background which should explain but not justify all the buildup subsequent to otherwise an ordinary incident. However, silences and exchanged glances between conflicting protagonists, Toni, a Lebanese Christian (Adel Karam), and Yasser, a Palestinian refugee (Kamel El Basha), often speak even more than words! The very ending is a bit vague, but so is the broader context, involving multifaceted interests, creating tensions, eternal conflicts whatsoever, sadly, with no solution in sight, neither at present, nor in the foreseeable future?As it was mentioned by the end of the movie… nobody has monopoly for suffering. I would like to add… for happiness, neither, which makes it even harder to agree endlessly ongoing bitter realities folks of (not only) Lebanon have to live.All in all, "The Insult" is a fine courtroom drama, which keeps you at the edge of the seat. It is an almost excellent Lebanese movie, fairly slash even for international audience, well worth seeing.


The Insult is the definition of a nice cinematic achievement. It is the fresh film directed by Ziad Doueiri and says the storyline of Toni a Christian Lebanese who got into a war from an insult blown out with a Palestinian plumber. Haunted by their past and the civil war, they went really far with it and the film took unexpected turns and surprises. Doueiri and Touma wrote a splendid courtroom drama script that is really tense, exciting and really fair for the two sides. It reminded me of the nice Sidney Lumet films with a touch of political background. That movie has nice characters rich with backup stories and it wouldn't be nice without the marvelous cast. Every actors gave an Oscar worthy performance. Thumbs up for Karam, Hayek and Diamand Bou Abboud. I gotta give credits to Camille Salemeh because he led the present for sure! Doueiri worked difficult on letting the actors give their greatest for the characters. Cinematography and score were also on a high lvl here! Doueiri is a magnificent director. His debut West Beirut has everytime been each Lebanese's favorite. The Insult was competing in Venice (It won greatest actor for Kamel Basha and had a 5 mins standing ovation), Telluride, TIFF and it the official submission for Lebanon at the Oscars for greatest foreign language movie. Daring, bold and smart, this film is large step forward for the Lebanese cinema.


What a tour-de-force! What a triumph! What a masterpiece! I haven't seen such a strong film in years. This is the type of film you come across so very rarely, that shakes you to your very core, makes the art of cinema worthwhile and reminds you why you fell in love with the motion picture in the first place.
