JEALOUSY (1945) in 35mm
A perky female cabbie (Jane Randolph) gets embroiled in a dangerous love triangle involving her suicidal writer husband (Nils Asther) and an aloof, high-toned doctor (John Loder) who takes a shine to her. Director Gustav Machatý, known for the scandalous ECSTASY from 1933, concocts a dreamy, off-kilter tale that touches all the tropes of "B" passion plays while also depicting the displacement of European artists adrift in sunbaked Hollywood. The result is part bargain-basement loopiness, part experimental art film... and, not surprisingly, it is the last film the artistically inclined Machatý made in America. Featuring Karen Morley (at her best!) and Hugo Haas. (Note courtesy of Noir City.) DIR/SCR/PROD Gustav Machatý; SCR Arnold Phillips, from a story by Dalton Trumbo. U.S., 1945, b&w, 71 min. NOT RATED
