Sorry, Wrong Number the other night for the first time and I’m now convinced Barbara Stanwyck is one of the greatest actresses who ever lived. As a result, I am more than a little obsessed with her. I'm watching as many of her films as I can.
Turner Classic Movies (TCM) earlier this month, Danger Signal. Adapted from the novel of the same name by Phyllis Bottome, this little film noir gem from 1945 starts with a creepy opening scene (a wedding ring is stolen off the hand of a dead woman) and doesn't let up until it's surprising and suspenseful final moments. Faye Emerson and Zachary Scott are fantastic in this. I highly recommend it.
Until next month...
P.S. I recently discovered the beautiful, haunting, poetic music of Hayley Ross. This is the video for her song Tumbledown. Enjoy!
