THE STRANGE AFFAIR OF UNCLE HARRY
(1945, Universal. 80 min. NOT ON DVD!)
Small-town designer Harry Quincey (George Sanders) finally meets the right woman (Ella Raines), but his possessive and possibly insane sister Lettie (Geraldine Fitzgerald) has no intention of letting him go. How will Harry get free of her incestuous clutches? A dark and mordant psycho-sexual drama (with lots of spicy wit) in which director Robert Siodmak creatively undermines the Hollywood Production Code. Fitzgerald is at her stark, raving, sexy best.
SO EVIL MY LOVE
(1948, Paramount [Universal] 112 min. NOT ON DVD!)
Inspired by a true-life, never-solved murder, this is one of the great undiscovered gothic-noir dramas of the 1940s. A devout missionary (Ann Todd) falls under the spell of a charming rogue (Ray Milland) and can't resist aiding him in the commission of his crimes. Milland is at his caddish best, but the real standouts are Todd and costar Geraldine Fitzgerald. Based on the novel by Marjorie Bowen, who wrote under the pseudonym Joseph Shearing.
