What are people saying?

  • ZYNAB's rating of the film The Scarlet Hour

    similar to double indemnity, but through the eyes of the woman. carol ohmart as the femme fatale is as blonde and dangerous as barbara, but her anxiety and vulnerability aren't part of her manipulative arsenal--they're real and keenly felt. curtiz wasn't as much of a misogynist as wilder and chandler. in the end, a single tear rolls down her cheek as she watches her love leave through a shadowed window.
