    This movie proved once and for all that Claire Trevor is one dynamite actress. She out did Rosalind Russel ten to one. Ok, maybe it was the part she had but still, she nailed her part while Roz continually hammed it up. Or more like reverted to her type cast over emoted self.

    My great-aunt, character actress Esther Howard, played Pansy Dupont, the newspaper lady who pipes up during the interrogation on the theatre stage by Sidney Greenstreet. She made 108 movies from 1930 to 1952, and was on Broadway from 1914 to 1930, in some of the biggest musicals of the time, including "Sunny" and "The New Moon". See her on IMDB. Very proud of her in our familiy.

    If you're a Rosalind Russell fan, you know that she does hyper better than anyone, and it always works. In this movie, she's exceptional. The trademark film noir techniques - black and white cinematography that creates those wonderful shadows and patterns on the walls,setting the mood, and the violin music rising in the background signaling the impending doom and gloom - move the movie along and build the tension. The only thing wrong with this film is that it isn't on DVD. One can only hope.

    Witty and entertaining. The cast is great, especially Rosalind Russell who is terrific as always. Great screenplay, suspenseful and compelling. Fine supporting cast, especially Claire Trevor. Great classic.

  • Happy Birthday, Mira!

    Good for you, Mira, for having your priorities straight. It's not my birthday, but I'll be watching them too. GOOD DECISION. Have a great night.

  • I wish I could find this movie on DVD!!!

    Today is my birthday, but I've turned down every invitation to celebrate tonight because Night Must Fall and The Velvet Touch will be playing this evening and I plan to drink champagne and watch both movies. I haven't seen The Velvet Touch in years. It's an excellent movie, with a stellar cast and I think, very underrated. Ms. Russell is one of my favorite actresses and this movie is so good. With fellow actors Sidney Greenstreet, Claire Trevor and Leon Ames, this movie is a must see and so I must see it tonight!
