Wednesday 13th December 2017 - 7:30 pm

Dir: Jacques Tourneur, 1947, USA, 97 mins.
With Robert Mitchum, Jane Greer, Kirk Douglas, Rhonda Fleming.

Director Jacques Tourneur was one of the great genre directors and this film is his noir classic.  It made a star of Kirk Douglas as Whit Sterling, the ruthless ‘Mr. Big‘, who hires private eye Jeff Bailey to find his absent mistress.  When Jeff catches up with sultry Kathie Moffat the inevitable happens and they make the fatal mistake of attempting to outwit Stirling.  Stylish cinematography in typical noir style.
