Cast a Dark Shadow (1955)



Reviews and Comments

While film noir is a distinctly American genre, the British turned out some excellent noirs of their own. In Cast a Dark Shadow, Dirk Bogarde plays a bluebeard of sorts who makes the mistake of matching wits with the wrong woman. The acting is great across the board: cold, hard-edged, and sometimes even shocking.
