5.0 out of 5 stars The Archtype Film Noir Feb. 15 2011
By Moodywoody TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The Woman in the Window is one of the film noirs that contributed to the reputation of Fritz Lang as one of the all time great film noir directors. A relatively simple story, it nevertheless gives the marvellous entertainment one expects from such a film noir by the charisma of its characters and the suspense driven direction of its director.

This film has one of the best film noir casts you'll ever find. Edward G. Robinson, Raymond Massey, Joan Bennett, and Dan Duyrea are exceptional in this film. It is particularly a real treat to view Dan Duyrea at his sinister best and Raymond Massey looking suspiciously at Edward G. Robinson. Joan Bennett appears to be too nice a gal to play the mistress/call girl, but she still does a fine job in her role.

This film, along with Scarlet Street, is probably the best film noir Fritz Lang ever directed. Simply one of the best film noirs you are ever going to view.

RKO Radio Pictures presents "THE WOMAN IN THE WINDOW" (3 November 1944) (107 min/B&W) (Fully Restored/Dolby Digitally Remastered) -- College professor Wanley (Robinson) and his friends become obsessed with the portrait of a woman in the window next to the men's club --- Wanley happens to meet the woman while admiring her portrait, and ends up in her apartment for talk and a bit of champagne --- Her boyfriend bursts in and misinterprets Wanley's presence, whereupon a scuffle ensues and the boyfriend gets killed --- In order to protect his reputation, the professor agrees to dump the body and help cover up the killing, but becomes increasingly suspect as the police uncover more and more clues and a blackmailer begins leaning on the woman.

Only after the film is over does the viewer realize that importance of that first conversation between Wanley and his two middle-aged friends --- Wanley's dream is the direct result of their discussion regarding the dangers and risks of succumbing to temptation.

Robinson's performance was believable and Bennet's was just as realistic as two people desperate to cover up a crime --- It's suspenseful and dramatic --- Get ready for that roller coaster ride and just try to get off.

4.0 out of 5 stars Gripping melodrama marred by co-out ending Aug. 8 2001

Robinson and Bennett are terrific in the Fritz Lang movie, but the cop-out ending shatters what could have been among the best of the film noir genre ever.

4.0 out of 5 stars A really good movie July 31 2001

This movie is done very good, the only thing I didn't like was the surprise ending. It's like taking away all that you experienced before. Why would anyone like that?

Edward G. Robinson gave a superb performance in "The Woman in the Window" which he made the same year as he starred in Billy Wilder's classic movie "Double Indemnity" (1944). To have two great parts such as these in the same year was a remarkable achievement but Robinson was a talented actor and played a variety of roles in a long and successful career. He started out at Warner Bros. in typical gangster roles (along with Bogart and Cagney) but by the 40's had branched out into other more satisfying characterisations. In "The Woman in the Window" he was outstanding as Professor Richard Wanley and had excellent support from Joan Bennett as the seductive Alice Reed and Dan Duryea was suitably menacing as the villainous Heidt. The film was powerfully directed by Fritz Lang with an unexpected surprise twist at the end!!
Robinson plays decent and respectable Richard Wanley whose family life is very straightforward and orderly. However, his peaceful routine is about to be devastated by sinister events completely beyond his control. With his wife and children away on holiday he is visiting his club for a quiet drink with colleagues when he stops to admire the painting of a woman in the window of an art gallery nearby. Much to his astonishment he sees the glamorous model (Joan Bennett) watching him carefully. She explains that she often visits the gallery to check on people's reactions to her painting in the window. After a few minutes conversation they go for a drink and then continue on to her apartment which turns out to be Robinson's biggest mistake. The events which follow lead to violence, murder and blackmail made even more complicated when Wanley's friend District Attorney Lalor (Raymond Massey) is assigned to the investigation.
