The Blue Gardenia - cinema review
directed by Fritz Lang, starring Anne Baxter, Raymond Burr, Richard Conte, Ann Sothern
b/w, 90', 35mm Italian dubbed version
A young call-center girl is shocked because she's convinced that, while she was drunk, she killed the man who tried to take advantage of her. A bright journalist helps her as she tries to discover the truth. McCarthyism left director Fritz Lang unemployed, and this film marks his comeback to the industry. It was supposed to be just a small commercial feature, but Lang forged it into a first-class noir, with a tense pace and a great script shot with the director's unique style.
