THE GHOST AND MRS. MUIR (dir: Joseph L. Mankiewicz, Not Rated) - Michelle says, "Mankewicz went on to direct more popular films like ALL ABOUT EVE, THE BAREFOOT CONTESSA, and GUYS AND DOLLS, but this earlier feature of his charms with Rex Harrison as a whiskered sea captain haunting a strong-willed widow (Gene Tierney) who has taken up residence in his old Victorian home by the ocean. It’s most fun when using that stage convention in which only the audience and the protagonist can see and interact with the ghost, who gleefully pranks and insults anyone threatening Mrs. Muir. But the movie offers just as much when it mellows in its second half, following Mrs. Muir over her life’s course and dwelling in the romance of her melancholy isolation, as she waits to join her ghostly lover."
NIGHTMARE ALLEY (dir: Edmund Goulding, Not Rated) - Bart says, "This dark fable set in the sleazy world of carnies and sideshow geeks is sometimes categorized as a film noir, but other than the long shadows and the oppressive hand of fate which causes the ruination of the film's anti-hero, it has little in common with other films of the genre, or with any other Hollywood film of the time for that matter. Tyrone Power, breaking free from his wholesome matinee-idol image, gives the performance of his career as a con man who sets out to conquer high society as a mind-reader, until his own predictions get the better of him. Exhilaratingly cynical!"
OUT OF THE PAST (dir: Jacques Tourneur, Not Rated) – Bart says, "Everybody loved that movie that came out a couple years ago with Viggo Mortensen called A HISTORY OF VIOLENCE. I hated it and here’s why: It’s just a shallow, bloody rip-off of this Robert Mitchum classic – the most perfect of all Films Noir. As mediocre as Jeff Bridges’ AGAINST ALL ODDS from the 80s was, at least it had the guts to admit it was an OUT OF THE PAST remake. You owe it to yourself to watch the genre-defining original as a reminder how past sins, and past films, will always come back to haunt you."
