Paint It Black
The hands of fate grip like a vise in two of master director Fritz Lang’s darkest journeys through the lower depths, each revolving around paintings and starring the crackerjack noir trio of Edward G. Robinson, Joan Bennett, and Dan Duryea. First, Robinson plays an artist mixed up in a web of deceit in SCARLET STREET, one of the most harrowing and haunting noirs of the 1940s. Then, he’s a psychology professor whose encounter with a mysterious woman—whom he first glimpses in a painting—leads him down a road to ruin in THE WOMAN IN THE WINDOW.
