One of director Fritz Lang's greatest American films and a canonical film noir of the classic, genre-defining 1940s. Walking home from a boozy party at his boss' Manhattan mansion, mild-mannered cashier Edward G. Robinson surprises himself when he interrupts Dan Duryea assaulting Joan Bennett on the street, knocking Duryea cold. Emboldened by Bennett's grateful attentions, he spirals into full-on midlife crisis mode, courting Bennett, entering into an art fraud scheme with the apologetic-but-duplicitous Duryea and skimming from the till at work. This isn't going to end well. DIR/PROD Fritz Lang; SCR Dudley Nichols, from "La Chienne" by Georges de La Fouchardière and André Mouézy-Éon. U.S., 1945, b&w, 103 min. NOT RATED
