1. War Horse
2. The Woman in the Window
A fine old film noir from 1944, featuring the same principal cast as the more famous Scarlet Street
, made the following year. Edward G. Robinson plays a university professor whose wife and son have gone away on a trip. After admiring the portrait of a woman in a shop window, he is surprised to meet the artist's model, played by Joan Bennett. An innocent evening together entangles the two of them in murder, a cover-up, and blackmail at the hands of a crooked ex-cop, played by Dan Duryea. The Woman in the Window
is lighter in tone than Scarlet Street
(which is one of the bleakest, most nihilistic noirs ever made) but just as entertaining.
