Film Noir, Crime, Drama – 1945 – Full Movie – 720p

1hr42min- Chris Cross (Edward G. Robinson, “The Woman in the Window”), 25 years a cashier, has a gold watch and little else. One rainy night, he rescues delectable Kitty (Joan Bennett, also “The Woman in the Window”) from her abusive boyfriend Johnny (Dan Duryea, for the trifecta “The Woman in the Window”). Smitten, amateur painter Chris lets Kitty think he’s a wealthy artist. At Johnny’s urging, she lets Chris establish her in an apartment (with his shrewish wife’s money). There, Chris paints masterpieces, but Johnny sells them under Kitty’s name, with disastrous and ironic results. Directed by Fritz Lang, “Scarlett Street” is a masterpiece of film-noir: a magnificent, sordid story, with sex and corruption, a beautiful and manipulative femme fatale, and a lovestruck loser, all the elements are present in this defining classic.
