OUT OF THE PAST
Ex-private eye Robert Mitchum tries to make a new life in the country, but his past catches up with him in the person of his mob-boss former employer Kirk Douglas and bad girl Jane Greer, with whom Mitchum's earlier romantic idyll ended on a murderous note. Dizzyingly told in flashback, blending dreamy romanticism with doomy cynicism, this is the ultimate film noir, with the screen's most vicious love triangle: Mitchum, with his iconic trench coat and laconic cool; femme fatale Greer, a serial man-jilter whose duplicity and murderousness know no bounds; and Douglas, blending charm and menace in one of his best performances. DIR Jacques Tourneur; SCR Daniel Mainwaring, from his novel "Build My Gallows High"; PROD Warren Duff. U.S., 1947, b&w, 97 min. NOT RATED
