Everything you want in a film noir you’ll find in Out of the Past. 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 solidified his tough-guy persona in this moody, fatalistic noir directed with memorable high style by Jacques Tourneur (Cat People). He plays Jeff Bailey, a laconic 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 thought he’d left behind. “Build my gallows high, baby,” Bailey sneers as events stack up against him. With dialogue like that and much more, Out of the Past builds its reputation high. Remade in 1984 as Against All Odds, starring Jeff Bridges, Rachel Ward and James Woods. (Dir. by Jacques Tourneur, 1947, USA, 97 mins., Not Rated)
