He was named as a communist in 1951, and moved to England, where he worked for the rest of his life. Not until 1956, with his film Time Without Pity (1957), was he able to use his real name- the arm of the blacklist was long. With the exception of The Boy with the Green Hair (1948), Loseys U.S. films were all examples of film noir, the domain where the Hollywood left-wing excelled in its critique of an alienated and alienating society, where fate was economic and not mere bad luck... Sadly, from 1962 on, Loseys work became self-conscious and self-indulgent but delighted those who had understood nothing of his earlier movies. Only the exemplary King & Country (1964) and The Go-Between (1970) reach the level of his finest film noirs.
