One of my all-time favorites. This movie plods along a little, at first in order to establish Edward G. Robinson's straight-arrow life, before taking a sharp left turn and the viewer becomes Robinson's passenger in what becomes the most unlikely roller coaster plot. Personally, this was my first time seeing Dan Duryea, and I became an immediate fan. Although some may find his "bad guy you love AND hate" a bit over-the-top, he provides the cherry on an already tasty cake in this movie.
Happy It Ended That Way
- DON RILEY
I actually was relieved with this ending. I was looking for a way out for our pathetic heroes and it was provided. Only problem is that the film ends up with the quality of a nursery rhyme. Just too many loose ends were simply amended and everything just works out so well............Edward G. Robinson was just fine and I thought it was a first rate film for the majority of the time, so I'll leave it at that.
woman in the window

Actually, this flawed film did us all a favor. Think about it, if screenwriter/producer Nunnally Johnson had managed to provide a properly noir-ish ending to this otherwise entertaining Hitchcockian type drama then director Fritz Lang would not have felt called upon to remake it the next year and we all would have been deprived of the classic noir "Scarlet Street" which is, in my opinion, one of the one hundred best American movies of all time. As for this one, which is lucky to crack the top one thousand, it's stylishly if brutally directed, as per usual, by Fritz Lang, with haunting cinematography by Milton Krasner (you can literally feel the dark damp night in that great scene of Robinson's disposal of the body) and solid performances by Eddie G. and Joan B. and perhaps a bit beyond solid by the always oleaginously menacing Dan Duryea. Give it a B.
Great film noir!!!!!!!!
Loved the twist ending-I am so glad that Edward G. didn't lose it all! As usual, I loved to hate Dan Duryea(a total favorite-if I see he's in a movie, then I have to see it!!) Joan Bennett was fantastic.Edward G. was such a good actor-he brought honesty to his roles
Don't have any objection to twist ending,Scarlet Street was rougher,and maybe what noir fans prefer,but I like that Eddie G didn't lose it all at the end.Dan Duryea seemed like a milder character in this one,nasty tough in SS.Joan beautiful as femme fatale.And Eddie Muller'sintro and outro appreciated as usual for his knowledge and info.
A New Fan of JB
- Maria Ramos
Applause Applause Applause, standing ovation, more, more more. I am now a new fan of Joan Bennett! A great movie and cast, and oh yes, the director. Thank you TCM for all the information about caste and crew! I read your Web page while I watch the movie.
Let down ending
- Mr. Blandings
Pretty engaging film - with superb performances by Robinson and Massey - but the whole thing seems a waste with the unimaginative "twist" ending.
Stunning, Thrilling, Captivating Film
- Kara Lancaster
When I first watched this film, I was totally surprised to see the end result. It is not at all what you would expect to see happen at the end. You just have to watch it and see. With the wonderful cast Edward G. Robinson and Joan Bennett, you cannot go wrong. I really wish TCM would show this movie again soon. It is very captivating, the viewer will be so surprised to see what happens to Joan and to Edward at the end of the movie. Enough said, must be viewed!!
Um filme excelente, assustador e que faz o telespectador ee prender ao filme . Um filme noir de alto nvel. Recomendo.
I just watched this movie for the first time (rented from Netflix) and it was fabulous. Suspenseful, maddening, scary and totally enthralling. This film had me from the beginning to the end. Of course I would never give away the ending, suffice it to say that it is a complete surprise. Wonderful performances, Edward G. is a sympathetic character as is Joan Bennett as the sexy femme fatale. I highly recommend this film noir, you won't be disappointed. I give it 4 stars.
Please Don't Tell Me How The Story Ends!
- S.P. Christopher
The first time I saw this movie is when I bought the DVD. I bought the DVD (sight unseen, so to speak) because of my fondness for Edward G. Robinson (it didn't hurt that Joan Bennett was his co-star) and boy, was I surprised - almost shocked - at the ending!Fritz Lang does a wonderful job of "taking us for a ride".Great film!
The Woman in the Window (1944)
An outstanding drama with a haunting and unforgettable performance by Edward G. Robinson. He is a truly amazing actor. Joan Bennett shines in one of her best performances. Superb story that is brought together so brilliantly be director Fritz Lang.
How have I missed this movie?
I really like the film noir movies, and thought I had seen most of them. How have I missed this one. It is wonderful. Kept me interested til the very end!Thanks for showing it.
One very good mystery
I enjoy a good "whodunit" and this one is one of the best. After you see it for the first time and see how it ends, I'm sure you will agree with me. Very entertaining...
At Last Coming On DVD!!!
