Real Noir that's really great!
on August 15, 2013
A solid entry in the Fox Film Noir Series. Film noir should be dark. That doesn't mean poorly lit , although that is often part of
the package. It should be dark in a sinister , threatening , brooding manner. This one delivers on all fronts. In this film noir the sound track enhances the mood. I'm not talking about music , I am referring to the
background noise, which will give you the willies. (Very creative trick) . The plot involves a young newly married couple
boarding a cruise ship for their honeymoon. They settle into their cabin and he goes to the purser's office to cash
some travelers cheques or something. He never returns. She is distraught , and doubly so when no one will admit that
her husband even boarded. The captain and crew come to think of her as crazy , or maybe pulling some sort of scam.
She has no passport or money ( My husband had all that ...). Things get increasingly bizarre , including her missing
husband calling her over the ships phone system. Of course no one believes . Eventually things come to a climax ,
but not one you will be likely to anticipate. Highly recommended . In glorious Black & White. A must see just for
the soundtrack noir.
