    Director Preminger owes a lot of this films success from previous noires. Mitchum is a driver lured by Simmons, excellent against type, into the murder of her parents. While some elements of this genre film are predictable, the story is more cynical than previous noires. Definitely worth watching for noir-lovers. I give it a 3.5/5.

    Just finished watching this and wanted to write about it while it was still fresh in my mind...some of Mitchum's noirs with RKO were fairly average, and some of Preminger's 50s films were also rather average, but with this production, they truly crank out a superb film. Jean Simmons is probably what makes it so good...it's another one of those complicated characters she plays so well in her career (like the one in Elmer Gantry, where you know she's all wrong and bad, but there is still an angelic quality). The courtroom scenes are very good in this film, with a great turn by character actor Jim Backus. And even after the verdict, there's still about 15 minutes of screen time left, and Preminger and his cast keep it suspenseful right up till the end. Loved it!

  • Superb Noir

    "Angel Face" is one of the most underrated 50's film noirs, and I think one of Otto Preminger's best films. The last scene where the Robert Mitchum and Jean Simmons characters go flying off the cliff in her sports car is kind of a twist on an old adage: instead of you should never get into a car with a stranger, you should never get into a car with a woman(and psycho killer)that you have fallen obsessively in love with.

  • more subtle than your typical murder mystery

    The Jean Simmons character is much more complex - and genuinely human - than the normal bad girl/murder suspect. She's confused, immature, lovable, devoted, manipulative, dangerous and gorgeous, a rare combination. What she see in Robert Mitchum, I'll never know.
