Jean Simmons is simultaneously sexy and creepy as a Los Angeles heiress who will do anything to get the man she wants. In this case, it's ultimate noir hero-chump Robert Mitchum, who blithely believes he can handle his unhinged paramour's Electra-fying passion. Otto Preminger directs this doomed romance with an almost suffocating precision, creating what Jean-Luc Godard hailed as "one of the ten best ever made in Hollywood."
(1948, Allied Artists [Warner Bros.] 88 min. NOT ON DVD!)
More buried treasure unearthed! Steve Fisher's original screenplay for this bargain-basement B film offers a clever twist on the typical femme fatale. Laura Mead (Belita) has served her time for robbery and still claims her innocence. She returns to the city where her former cop lover (Preston Foster) sent her up. Was she guilty, or was he just jealous? Is she back for a fresh start, or revenge? A strange, hypnotic noir from Poverty Row director Jack (Decoy) Bernhard, resurrected in a new 35-mm print by the Film Noir Foundation!
