The Dark Corner
I too was never a "I Love Lucy" fan but I have seen a number of her late 30's & 40's "B" movies. She stands out in this one. Another Lucy movie, a comedy, where Lucy shines is "The Long Trailer" made during the height of I Love Lucy days. I had taped The Dark Corner on TMC because it was not close captioned when shown & since I have a hearing loss, I usually require some some backing up & repeating of the dialog in order to keep up w/the plot. This one was worth the trouble.
Lucille's Light Shines in Dark Corner
- c velazquez
Lucille Ball's interpretation of the character is extremely well rounded. Strong, humorous and lovely with just the right amount of warmth. She keeps this perfectly stylized film grounded.
The Dark Corner (1946)
Excellent film noir, great cast. It's interesting to see Lucille Ball in a film of this nature. Great lighting and cinematography, sassy dialogue. Very well written. Nicely produced. The score is great. Very entertaining and solid film. Excellent support
I Fell in Love Lucy!
I was never a Lucy fan; she was too loud for my taste so I rarely watched 'I Love Lucy' on TV. So when I came across this film as part of my recent quest to watch as many film noir films as are available I was somewhat dubious about what it would be like and my inclination was to not bother; was it a serious film noir, or some sort of comedy, I wondered? Am I ever glad that that I took the time because not only is it a very good film noir, which is now one of my favorites, but also because it gave me an opportunity to see Lucy in a serious roll. And she was wonderful! I actually did fall in love Lucy; and surprised myself! She was a good serious actress; and really a very attractive woman. The director and cameraman think so too given the frequent shots of her pretty face. Seeing her in this roll was a real treat. And, you know, she was a serious smoker; I'm not but she was cool. Watch this film and enjoy. cwb3

I saw this movie last week for the first time and was taken with it. I will have to watch it again to really appreciate it because I did miss the first part of it. But I am glad to know that it exists, so I can be watching for it. I am looking forward to seeing it again.
