Hollow Triumph is a 1948 American film noir crime film directed by Steve Sekely starring Paul Henreid and Joan Bennett. It was released by Eagle-Lion Films, based on the 1946 novel of the same title written by Murray Forbes.
Hollow Triumph opened in August of 1948, with only a luke warm response from patrons at its first release. In 1949, it was re-titled "The Scar", and the name change seemed to help boost box office takings. In 1953 the film was re titled yet again, this time as "The Man Who Murdered Himself".
Hollow Triumph is now regarded as one of the quintessential Film Noirs.
