Directed by Lewis Milestone and starring Barbara Stanwyck, Van Heflin, Lizabeth Scott and (in his first film role) Kirk Douglas. This moody and incredibly atmospheric film noir tells the story of Martha Ivers (Barbara Stanwyck) and the deep dark MovieNight_Tuesday21secret she’s been hiding for nearly twenty years. When a face from her past, played by the great Van Heflin, shows up, all hell breaks loose.In addition to Douglas’ debut, this film is also a lesser known entry in the long and illustrious writing career of Robert Rossen, the brilliant writer and director of classics like All the Kings Men and The Hustler.
This CMNYK event is going down at the Darkside Cinema on Tuesday, July 21st, and the fun starts at 7:00 PM.
