THE RECKLESS MOMENT

75 Years of Film Noir, Part 4: Prime Noir of the 1940s

Double Feature with LAURA

(1949) dir Max Ophuls w/James Mason, Joan Bennett, Geraldine Brooks, Henry O’Neill [81 min; 35mm]
Joan Bennett plays an unassuming, regular ‘ol mom who tries to protect her daughter from a seducer, only to be blackmailed herself. Confronted by the seedy side of life, she finds an unlikely champion in the form of one of her blackmailers (Mason). This elegant and atmospheric noir is one of a few American films made by German born director Max Ophuls.
