Scarlet Street

year: 1945
director: Fritz Lang
cast: Dan Duryea, Edward G. Robinson, Joan Bennett

A box-office hit (despite being banned in three states), SCARLET_STREET is one of legendary director Fritz LangŐs (M, Metropolis) finest American films. When middle-aged milquetoast Chris Cross (Edward G. Robinson, Double Indemnity) rescues street-walking bad girl Kitty (Joan Bennett) from the rain-slicked gutters of an eerily artificial back-lot Greenwich Village, he plunges into a whirlpool of lust, larceny and revenge. As ChrisŐ obsession with the irresistibly vulgar Kitty grows, the meek cashier is seduced, corrupted, humiliated and transformed into an avenging monster before implacable fate and perverse justice triumph in the most satisfyingly downbeat denouement in the history of American film. Dan Duryea, as KittyŐs pimp boyfriend, skillfully molds Ňa vicious and serpentine creature out of a cheap, chiseling tin horn.Ó (The New York Times). Packed with hairpin plot twists and Ňbristling with fine directorial touches and expert actingÓ (Time), SCARLET_STREET is a dark gem of film noir
