Edmund O’Brien, Joan Fontaine and Ida Lupino star in this drama. Ida Lupino directs. You’d have to be good to be a woman in 1953 and direct a film. Ida was the best. This film has been almost ignored by the viewers and it’s one of the best ones here.
Joaquin Shannon confesses to a murder he didn’t commit. He gets a year in prison to start for manslaughter. It gets hard to be on good behavior.
The Society of the Black Dragons sends Bela Lugosi (Dr. Melcher) to transform 6 japanese into indentical likenesses of American industrialists forming a 5th column. This is at the behest of the Nazis.
If you haven’t, you should watch A Matter of Life and Death. It was released in the US under the title of Stairway to Heaven. It’s a charming story about a pilot who dies after being shot down in a plane and whether love can save him. It’s got David Niven and a very cute Kim Hunter. This is a charming story. One interesting thing is that like the Wizard of Oz, it’s shot in color and black and white, but the scenes on Earth are in color and heaven is in black and white.
