Today's feature is a classic film noir featuring Republican superstar Barbara Stanwyck as a femme fatale ever more viperish than her Phyllis Dietrichson from "Double Indemnity"(1946). Kirk Douglas makes his film debut as her alcoholic, weak willed and dominated husband while Van Heflin plays a man out of the past who they fear may know their deep dark criminal secret.

(Rome did not create a great empire by talking, they did it by killing all those who opposed them)
Yay!!! My very first film noir I ever saw. Highly recommended, and you gotta love Barbara Stanwyck.

(With the latest world events, I'm too sad to have a tag line.)
I saw Barbara Stanwyck in “The Lady Eve” with Henry Fonda recently. Very funny and entertaining.

First movie I’d ever seen Lizabeth Scott in.
Watched “Fiddler on the Roof” on “This” - cute story, some lovely music - “Thank you, papa? Thank you, papa?”......
To: Intolerant in NJ
Terrible story about a family leaving God and breaking up. Great music though.
