This is ONE of my favorite film noirs EVER!
An aging silent film queen refuses to accept that her stardom has ended. She hires a young screenwriter to help set up her movie comeback. The screenwriter believes he can manipulate her, but he soon finds out he is wrong. The screenwriter’s ambivalence about their relationship and her unwillingness to let go leads to a situation of violence, madness, and death.
Until Eddie comes back next week, I think shall pour me a stiff one and re-watch a classic. There are too many good lines to count. Here’s the trailer below and have a great one.
