The Woman in the Window

USA 1944. Dir: Fritz Lang. 99 min. 35mm

35mm PRINT! ► Edward G. Robinson and Joan Bennett top the cast of the stylish and seductive Woman in the Window, one of Fritz Lang’s best and most nightmarish American noirs. Robinson’s a mild-mannered psychology professor enjoying a bit of freedom while his wife and kids are away on vacation. Bennett’s the alluring subject of a painting he regularly stops to admire in a gallery window. An unexpected encounter with this beauty in the flesh puts the professor in a compromising — and dangerously criminal — position. Noir regular Dan Duryea appears as a blackmailer; Canadian Raymond Massey plays the professor’s pal, a DA. “Not merely a dazzling piece of suspense, but also a characteristically stark demonstration of Lang's belief in the inevitability of fate ... A classic noir thriller” (Geoff Andrew, Time Out).

REVIEWS

“Lang's familiar, ripe-for-interpretation trademarks — mirrors, clocks, and shop windows — dovetail nicely with the dime-store psychoanalysis.”

"The film gives viewers their money's worth with not one but two logical and satisfying surprise twists at the end.”
