Jane Greer, Out of the Past
The 1947 movie Out of the Past (directed by Jacques Tourneur) is, in my estimation, one of the best film-noirs ever made. The perfect cast was put in place to tell the dramatic story.. and did they ever do it with style. In addition to the stunningly beautiful Jane Greer, pictured here, the cast also includes Robert Mitchum, Rhonda Fleming, Kirk Douglas, Richard Webb, Steve Brodie, and Virginia Huston.
Out of the Past is (understandably) one of the first films recommended to people who are new to the world of film-noir. It’s just so deliciously perfect in every way and is, quite honestly, the picture perfect image of what a film-noir should look like.
