OUT OF THE PAST, 1947, Warner Bros., 97 min. Dir. Jacques Tourneur
Robert Mitchum plays a grubby private eye hired by sleek gangster Kirk Douglas, who vie for the honor of being betrayed by Jane Greer in this quintessential noir masterpiece. The serpentine plot is spiced with some of the wittiest wisecracks ever, rendered in the highest noir style by Tourneur and cameraman Nicholas Musaraca with equal measures of poetry, poignancy and hardboiled fatalism.
NOTORIOUS, 1946, Walt Disney Co., 101 min. Dir. Alfred Hitchcock
Director Alfred Hitchcock’s superb espionage thriller and intoxicating love story follows allied agent Cary Grant as he convinces disillusioned party girl Ingrid Bergman, the daughter of a supposed traitor, to marry and spy on her father’s Nazi friend (Claude Rains). This seemingly clever plan becomes complicated by the smoldering romance that emerges between Grant and Bergman.
