Jacques Tourneur’s Out of the Past
(1947, 97 min)
A tenacious detective (Robert Mitchum) spinning his wheels to make good. A drop-dead beauty (Jane Greer) up to no good, and moneyed mobster (Kirk Douglas) with a shark’s grin, plus double-crosses, fall guys, shadowy rooms, and bleak souls. Mitchum plays a one-time private investigator walking the straight and narrow of small-town life until an acquaintance from his past pulls him back into the troubles he’d left behind.
