Viewing Notes

My second film for my mini Noir City Saturday. It’s been a couple of decades since I’ve seen the “remake” but it’s crazy how lo-fi this movie is compared to that one, which I appreciate. Marie Windsor is always so great. I started the commentary with William Friedkin however it’s disappointing that he’s reading it as opposed to free form. Still interesting.
