Got this movie on DVD. also another great one is woman in the window with all 3 of them acting together again ???????
bizarro. people and their troubles, hopes, fears. pretty good story. joan bennet is lovely.
I wish I could get through the screen and enjoy the life in the old days. No internet or cellphone and even this way it was better.?
Nothing like a good classic film
I continually come back to this my favourite classic. E. R. J.B and of course D.Dyarea ….
The three most classics.
From an American/English old b/w movie classics
Beautiful black & white cinematography. The colourists just don't get it & are slowly destroying this great media. The Third Man in colour I don't think so & a long list.
This is classic Hollywood right here. Some ppl just don't appreciate what it took to get where it's at today
Hard to imagine her as the mother of The Bride opposite Spencer Tracy …. another role she played to perfection!
All-time classic Noir that never palls … Perfect piece of film ….
It’s a 1945 movie, made during war
Amateurish acting by Durea and Bennet. The real pro. Edward Robinson
Noone could be that naive. It was obvious that he was being taken
After the trial why didn’t he go home to his wife instead of going to a dingy room with flashing lights?
A great movie, every frame a work of art. He was a quiet man.
Красота – это капитал и яд одновременно! Несчастный Крист
влюбился в " Икону Красоты", бездушную, безмозглую куклу, которая разрушила не только его
творческий труд, но и помутнила
его рассудок! Глупо, если мужчины
влюбляются визуально, в " Икону",
не учитывая моральных и духовных
компонентов женского индивидуального характера. Красота –
это магнитное притяжение, которое
порой оборачивается несчастьем и губит душу мужчины. Не напрасно
говорят, что " любовь – слепа,
полюбишь и козла! " Китти могла
бы быть счастлива, если понимала
немного Криста и помогла бы ему
I love classic films. They seem so natural and well acted.!
Actually the woman behind the window is better than this one.
I just love this movie! I'm watching it again it's so good! Wonderful actors!
Fritz lang has made after metropolis great noir movies with men,women the best movies ??❤
What a great movie! So much better than Robinson's and Bennet's previous movie 'Woman in the Window.' That would have been a great movie but it was ruined by a ridiculous ending, an ending that could induce nausea. (I do try to remember that censorship was much more strict back in the day. This film 'Scarlett Street' got banned in some cities because of its hard-hitting content.) Both films have very similar plots except this time they got it right.
POSSIBLE SPOILERS: To me, a more workable ending to 'Woman in the Window' might be like this: At the car as the police close in on Robinson, the scene fades to black. Fade back in and we see a dark jail cell, light shining through the bars casting shadows across the lonely figure of Robinson sitting on a bunk staring blankly into space. The camera pulls back and the scene fades to black. The end.
"KARMA" will haunt you forever; there is
(NO REST 4 THE WEARY)!
This is my first time seeing Scarlet Street (1945). I think it should be good now.
Why this man always get harmed by young girls! Didn't he get a lesson from "Woman in the window" !
This wonderful 1945 film was made the same year I was born. 76 years later we are both still great!
Dan Duryea is always my favorite actor! I don't care if the "star" is Edward G., , Bogart, Gable, whoevet……if Dan Duryea is in it, for me, Dan's the man!
pretty dragged out
I can not watch this movie. It’s too horrible. I know why Van Gogh cut his ear off.
I did 25 years where I worked. It's not the money which bothered me but it was given to me in a brown envelope by an office member of staff staff who I'd never seen before with not a word of thanks for 25 years service. Management couldn't be bothered to see me.
