DVD Region 2 PAL. Film Noir from the Golden Age of Hollywood Filmmaking.
Tough business tycoon Donald Whitley Carson III (Robert Ryan) tests his mettle when left to die in the Mojave Desert following a riding accident, which broke his leg. When he realises that his scheming wife Geraldine (Rhonda Fleming) and her lover Joseph Duncan (William Lundigan), his business partner, have left him to perish, he is determined to survive to wreak his revenge.
Rhonda Fleming, “one of Hollywood’s coolest, prettiest villainesses” (New York Times), relaxing by a motel pool with a cocktail, contrasts starkly with her husband’s torment in the harsh desert as Ryan’s dramatic voice-over of his thoughts assesses his options and the resources he has to escape.
With breathtaking desert photography by Lucien Ballard (“Berlin Express”, “True Grit”), Hollywood Noir has never looked better than in this stunning Technicolor ® restoration by the late Dan Symmes, receiving its first Blu-ray release worldwide.
