  • 7th victim addendum

    I just looked Tom Conway up and found the explanation for the "George Sanders type sneer," in his voice; namely, that Sanders was Conway's sibling. Apparently, both brothers were pretty messed up in the private life dept. Good actors, though, especially when called upon to be sardonic.

    As long as you can suspend the ol disbelief, and not ask too many questions regarding De Witt Bodeen and Charles O'Neal's silly screenplay (like how the absurdly naive Kim Hunter wouldn't have had at least a slight suspicion that her death obsessed sister, Jacqueline, who raised her, was, you know, a trifle WEIRD) you can have a good time with this eerie Val Lewton/Mark Robson horror/noir. Some of the performances are quite effective. I love Tom Conway as the anti devil worshiping shrink. He's a good guy, but with a George Sanders type sneer in his voice that is also redolent of a bad guy. Viva la ambiguity! And Jean Brooks, with her Cleopatra hair, disembodied voice, and admission that she has always wanted to die, evokes both pity and revulsion. (First time I've seen this actress. I'll definitely try to catch her in other things.) Also, there are certain touches, like a menacing shower scene that is even creepier than the one in "Psycho," and the dying woman who is so intent on her last evening out on the town that she misses the snap/ thud sound of Jacqueline hanging herself, that make this film linger in the mind. Give it a B plus.(Story's just too ludicrous for an A.) P.S. I know he made this movie fifteen years prior to "Beaver," but it's disconcerting to see Ward Cleaver (i.e. Hugh Beaumont) in the shadowy world of noir. You keep expecting him to show up in a cardigan sweater, pipe and a newspaper, dispensing fatherly advice.

    An eerie, surprisingly modern thriller from producer Lewton. Hunter is a nave orphan who goes to Greenwich Village to find her missing sister, who is involved with Satanist. Lewton has stated this as his favourite film and director Robson has a lot of suspenseful scenes, like when two men try to pass a corpse as a drunk, but it's doesn't have the same creepy, menacing atmosphere as "Cat People." A fine thriller that's worth seeing come Halloween. I give it a 3.5/5.

  • Barbi Hale surprise

    I got immediately hooked. Normally I would have been watching Perry Mason but am vacationing at an inn without Me-TV. (Of course, as long as I have TCM I can live without any other TV.) I was hoping to fall asleep so I could rise early and watch Barbi Hale in the wonderful cult classic noir The Window, when who pops up on the screen in one of her very first appearances as, essentially, an extra? A 21 year old Miss Hale looking adorable! So not only is this movie entertaining in it's own right but it has the added benefit of the iconic Della Street and Igave it an extra half star for this! In the next two years she appeared in two Falcon movies with one of the stars of this movie, Tom Conway. Fun!
