  1. This has been, for me, one of the greatest new release announcement weeks of all time. First A Matter of Life and Death and the Dietrich/von Sternberg set, and now THIS – one of my all-time favorite films.

  2. Great news! I first saw alll but the first on TV late one night age about 8. Took me some time to find out the name (no Internet) and years to see it.

    I have now seen it in a new 35mm print, own the DVD, and will soon have a Blu-Ray.

    The perfect noire.

    Yes, I agree. I have to admit however that time has softened the disappointment of the ending for me.

    Disappointments that we experience throughout life does also tend to have a smoothing over effect. Over the course of time, some no longer seem so bad.

    CHEERS! 🙂

    I don’t recall ever seeing this but having recently watched Kino’s excellent SCARLET STREET I’m looking forward to it. There seem to be conflicting opinions on which is the better film.

    The two films, both excellent, go together but Scarlet Street is more ruthless and unflinching.

  5. that's a good algebraic equation but i don't think it works

    i would say Ewd. G Robinson > Joan Bennett, because i factored the following and this is because of personal prefrences

    Little Caeser
    Double Indiminity
    The Sea Wolf
    Key Largo
    The Woman in the Window
    Scarlet Street
    The Ten Commandments
    Mackenna's Gold
    Soylent Green

    but then that's the answer i came up with i am sure that there may be a different solution to the problem

    by the way this was a no brainer on the pre-order 😀

    Mathematical Quiz:

    Fritz Lang + Edward G. Robinson = Cinema Magic

    and…

    Fritz Lang + Joan Bennett = Cinema Magic

    Does it follow that…

    Edward G. Robinson = Joan Bennett ?

    No, because you missed out the two other elements in the equation: Dan Duryea and Milton Krasner :).

  7. Robin9

    No, because you missed out the two other elements in the equation: Dan Duryea and Milton Krasner :).

    Incorrect. They simply cancel out of both sides of the original equation:

    Fritz Lang + Edward G. Robinson + (Dan Dureya + Milton Krasner) = Cinema Magic

    and…

    Fritz Lang + Joan Bennett + (Dan Dureya + Milton Krasner) = Cinema Magic

    still leading to…

    Edward G. Robinson = Joan Bennett

    [We can test this by eliminating all other variables – i.e.:

    Fritz Lang + Joan Bennett – (EG Robinson + Dan Dureya + Milton Krasner) = Cinema Magic

    refer to Man Hunt and Secret Beyond the Door

    QED]

  8. I never get tired of watching these film noirs from this era. They are like eating a good meal that I want to enjoy over and over. And I also think of DARK SHADOWS when I think of Joan Bennett. She was even beautiful in that. I think Robinson is one of the greatest actors of all time. DOUBLE INDEMNITY proved that to me. I’ve never heard of this one, but I’m gonna take a look at it. Keep ’em coming!

  9. Love E.G.R I love this movie ! Thanks Kino ! I hope Kino releases, and restores …The Red House (1946) united artists E.G.R is Terrific in that movie. It needs restoration. Film Detective version is ok, but no sharpness or detail.

  10. I just watched a crappy copy on Youtube and loved it! What a great movie! And Joan Bennett is beautiful and gives a great performance! Can’t wait to see what this Kino version looks like!

    Joan Bennett deserves better than a low grade bootleg presentation on YouTube! This photo of her, made as part of the publicity build-up for Woman In the Window

    Is currently going for $39.95 on Ebay. It shows how attractive Joan Bennett was in those days.

  12. Thanks, Kino, for releasing one of my favourite films ever in high-def!

    If you love film-noir, you must not miss this gem from German-Jewish genius Fritz Lang. An absolute masterpiece of film-making in a wonderful narrative style.

    Top notch performances by the wonderful Mr. Edward G. Robinson, Joan Bennett, Dan Duryea and Raymond Massey.

    Don't miss the facial expression of E. G. Robinson when told by Dist. Atty. Raymond Massey that they had a female suspect questioned, which Robinson believed it was the character of Joan Bennett.

    Robinson: "How does she look like?"
    Massey: "Bottom-of-the-barrel."

    😉

    Looking forward to a nice Blu-ray with intact grain structure!
