Barbara Stanwyck and Paul Douglas
One of my favorite film-noirs, Clash by Night (1952), is the very definition of the genre. Deliciously dark with a very strong female character who is heck in heels.
The film was directed by Fritz Lang, and has a cast that includes Barbara Stanwyck, Paul Douglas, Robert Ryan, J. Carrol Naish, Keith Andes, and Marilyn Monroe.
It’s one of MANY extraordinary performances by Barbara Stanwyck and one of her best film-noirs.
