2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Mark Norvell on July 8 2004
Format: DVD
Among the spate of b&w noir films recently released by Universal and Warner's is this classic. Directed on a somewhat higher budget than most noirs of the 40's, Jacques Tourneur used his considerable skill honed on his 40's noir horror films with Val Lewton to fashion a first class thriller of deceit, lies, double crosses, murder, blackmail etc. all wrapped up with a first rate cast. One time gum shoe Robert Mitchum (now running a small town gas station) is tracked down and hired by Kirk Douglas to find his runaway mistress (Jane Greer) who shot him and ran off with $40,000. He finds her in Acapulco and immediately falls for her deceptive charms. She's a femme fatale with more traps in her web than a black widow spider. Of course, things get complicated (there's a murder and Mitchum disposes of the body) and soon Greer is back with Douglas and Mitchum is up to his neck again with another "job"...from Douglas. Mitchum is torn between his love for a good girl (Virginia Huston) and the wily machinations of Greer. And this time, he suspects he's being set up as a fall guy by Greer and Douglas. But Greer has her hooks in him good and it looks as if no one will win. Rhonda Fleming is another bad girl Mitchum contends with and there's more murder and mayhem to be dealt with as the walls close in on everyone. "Out of the Past" is an incredibly entertaining film that pulls you in and doesn't let up. Mitchum narrates the first part of the story (telling how he got involved to Huston) in typical fatalistic deadpan style. This is one of the all-time greats and the DVD print is really crisp and clean. A definite collector's item.

Format: DVD
Jacque Tourneur's "Out of the Past" is one of the quintessential film noirs. Everything, from Robert Mitchum's musings - "Build my gallows high, baby" to the darkly mysterious environment is fraught with subtle entendre and troubling meaning. yet so fascinating that you can't turn away. Robert Mitchum is at his sleepy-eyed, dry and brooding best as Jeff Bailey, the ultra-cool, ultra savvy former P.I. hiding out from his former life as a gas station owner in a little alcove of existence that itself is absent from the mainstream world. But the past catches up with Bailey in the embodiment of callous, calculating career criminal, Whit Sterling (Kirk Douglas). Whit and Jeff had some spurious goings on once upon a time, an old score that Whit isn't willing to overlook or concede once he finds Jeff. If that was not bad enough, Kathie Moffat (Jane Greer) enters the picture as the atypical femme fatale, whose bite is more venomous than the poisonous web of destruction and deceit that she manages to ensnare everyone in. This is a palpable taut thriller with few equals, an intellectual crime drama that puts its remake "Against All Odds" to shame. As is to be expected, the plot is anything but straight forward, leading to twists of convention that the first time viewer will be hard pressed to figure out or see coming.
In keeping with Warner's current trend to not really do all that is required to completely remaster classic movies for DVD, the transfer of "Out of the Past" is just a bit above average. The gray scale is nicely balanced with deep solid blacks and whites that are relatively clean. There's a considerable amount of film grain and age related artifacts for a visual presentation that, while a considerable improvement over previously issued VHS tapes, is still below par.

I Remember Jane Greer talking about Mitchum in his bio and the fact that Kirk Douglas was trying to " underact" Mitchum. Greer says " Nobody Could Underact Mitchum.
Its true, and this is one of his great films. As noted the sparkling dialogue such as.... Rhonda Fleming and Mitchum are walking down a corrider towards an elevator..after just leaving her boyfriend..she says ' What did you think of him" Mitchum says " He,s a jerk" Fleming then asks " Why do you say that"?
Mitchum says .." He,s in love with you isnt he! Look for Paul Valentine and Dickie Moore as the mute.Classic Mitchum..

Out of the Past... What can one say?... Just watch it late at nite like its meant to, everyone's asleep and it's four in the morning... Just like Mitchum looked in most of his best roles ...If you love old black and white movies like me, especially noir, this is one of the top ten movies of all time...Dialogue, Come on! Some of the best you'll ever hear. Photography, Ditto! Especially the rain scene in Mexico with the shadows of palms in the cabina...Sum it up, They don't make em like this anymore. Get it!!!

RKO Radio Pictures presents "OUT OF THE PAST" (13 November 1947) (97 min/B&W) (Fully Restored/Dolby Digitally Remastered) -- Jeff Bailey, small-town gas pumper, has his mysterious past catch up with him one day when he's ordered to meet with gambler Whit Sterling --- En route to the meeting, he tells girlfriend Ann his story --- Flashback: Once, Jeff was a private eye hired by Sterling to find his mistress Kathie who shot Whit and absconded with $40,000 --- He traces her to Acapulco, where the delectable Kathie makes Jeff forget all about Sterling --- Back in the present, Whit's new job for Jeff is clearly a trap, but Jeff's precautions only leave him more tightly enmeshed.

Classic example of 40's film noir with dialogue a particular standout.
