Synopsis

More Marriage Noir! Double Feature: THE SUSPECT, 1944, Universal, 85 min. Dir. Robert Siodmak. Timid tobacconist Charles Laughton develops a friendship with poor young Ella Raines, igniting his wife’s jealousy. Despite the Edwardian-era decorum, this is one of Siodmak’s best noirs, with Laughton’s memorable portrait of a lonely man who will do anything to protect the unexpected joy he’s found too late in his life. LADIES IN RETIREMENT, 1941, Sony Repertory, 91 min. Dir. Charles Vidor. Ida Lupino scores as a housekeeper who becomes enmeshed in murder and madness. Ida tends to an aged actress (Isobel Elsom) and persuades her to take in her two eccentric sisters (Elsa Lanchester and Edith Barrett). All bets are off when a mysterious stranger (Louis Hayward) arrives to stir the pot further. Introduction by Alan K. Rode of the Film Noir Foundation.
