This review is from: Fallen Angel (DVD)
Twentieth Century Fox Film Corporation presents "FALLEN ANGEL" (5 December 1945) (98 min/B&W) (Fully Restored/Dolby Digitally Remastered) -- Eric Stanton (Dana Andrews), a penniless drifter, falls in love with Stella (Linda Darnell), who works in a small-town coffee shop --- She refuses to marry him because of his poor financial condition --- Desperate for money, Eric marries a wealthy local spinster (Alice Faye), who he plans to divorce --- His plans go awry when someone ends up dead and he's the prime suspect --- The film's shadowy world is just right --- As with all Preminger films, the women look fantastic.

This noir is star studded. It not only features Andrews, Darnell and Faye, but spectacular performances by Charles Bickford, Anne Revere and Bruce Cabot.

Otto Preminger's follow-up to Laura (1944) - he made one further noir thrillers with Dana Andrews: Where the Sidewalk Ends (1950).
