Scarlet Street

This 1945 film is on Amazon, and was recommended by Eddie Mueller (the film noir guru). Of course, anything he recommends we need to see and this was no exception if you love the genre. It has a great cast (who can pass up Edward G. Robinson and Joan Bennett?) and a classic noir story line. Lonely middle-aged man (Robinson) falls in love with a beautiful young woman/con artist (Bennett) with tragic results. Clearly, this deserves the Top In Genre designation — not for everyone but fun for fans. If you are not a noir fan, this might be Good for an Afternoon!
