The Postman Always Rings Twice

Buy Tickets

THE POSTMAN ALWAYS RINGS TWICE

(1946) dir Tay Garnett w/Lana Turner, John Garfield, Cecil Kellaway, Hume Cronyn [113 min; 35mm]
Lana Turner is smoldering as a prototypical femme fatale in this tale of desire and murder from the pen of James M. Cain. John Garfield plays Frank Chambers, a drifter who is taken in by the owner of a roadside diner. Despite this kindness, Frank’s scruples are overwhelmed by lust for his benefactor’s scheming wife (Turner) and the two conspire to get rid of the pesky husband.
