BLACK WIDOW (1954) (BLU-RAY)
Starring:  Reginald Gardiner, George Raft, Otto Kruger, Gene Tierney, Van Heflin, Peggy Ann Garner, Ginger Rogers
Directed By:  Nunnally Johnson
Composed By:  Leigh Harline

“Entertaining…its cinematography is frequently stunning (with plenty of gorgeous panoramas of the New York skyline)…Nunnally Johnson has provided some marvelous dialogue.”
– Craig Butler, allmovie.com

“Combining the backstage bitchery of All About Eve with the murder-mystery-told-in-flashback structure of Laura, and burnishing it all to a garish, high-gloss color palette reminiscent of How to Marry a Millionaire (1953), Black Widow succeeds in being a pleasingly campy goulash.”
– Ken Anderson, lecinemadreams.com

Nunnally Johnson (The Grapes of Wrath, The Dirty Dozen) wrote and directed Black Widow (1954), a CinemaScope™ film noir about a group of sophisticated theater-world New Yorkers caught up in the scheming plans of an ambitious young woman (Peggy Ann Garner). Among her victims are the good (Van Heflin, Gene Tierney) and the bad (Ginger Rogers, Reginald Gardner), all being investigated by a tough NYPD officer (George Raft) after the malicious, mischievous cat among the pigeons turns up dead. Highlighted by a lush Leigh Harline score, available on this Twilight Time release as an isolated track.
