Introduction by Film Noir Foundation’s Foster Hirsch!
George Stroud (Milland), editor of Crimeways, America’s most popular true-crime magazine, finds himself the prime suspect in the murder of his publisher’s mistress with whom he’s just shared a day-drinking dalliance. Earl Janoth, the tyrannical Murdoch-like publisher, is played with sinister relish by Charles Laughton, whose real-life wife, Elsa Lanchester, provides comic support as a kooky Greenwich Village artist. One of the most suspenseful noir films of all time.
Double Feature with CALL NORTHSIDE 777
