NOIR CITY Murderous Husbands! -- CONFLICT / THE SUSPECT
(d. Curtis Bernhardt, Warner Bros., 1945, 86 min.) RARITY! NOT ON DVD!
One of Humphrey Bogart's most rarely screened films features the legendary actor playing a scheming wife killer (Rose Hobart stands in for Bogart's real-life ball and chain, Mayo Methot) who gets into a cat-and-mouse game with family friend Sidney Greenstreet, a psychiatrist with expertise in the workings of the criminal mind. Robert Siodmak wrote the original story, "The Pentagram," which he originally intended to direct.
(d. Robert Siodmak, Universal, 1944, 85 min.) RARITY! NOT ON DVD!
Purists might argue that the Edwardian setting isn't noir. Listen: Whenever a lovelorn sap murders his wife to pursue a feckless young filly, that's noir, whatever era provides the backdrop. Charles Laughton is trapped in the loveless marriage, and gorgeous Ella Raines looks like his ticket out. This unjustly overlooked suspense classic is comparable to Hitchcock's best.
