The Woman in the Window [1944]


Welcome! The lobby of the Deranged L.A. Crimes theater is open. Grab a bucket of popcorn, some Milk Duds and a Coke and find a seat.

Tonight’s feature is THE WOMAN IN THE WINDOW [1944] starring Edward G. Robinson, Joan Bennett, Raymond Massey and Dan Duryea.

TCM says:

After seeing his wife and children off on a summer vacation, Richard Wanley, a middle-aged psychology professor, heads to see his friends, District Attorney Frank Lalor and Dr. Barkstane, at their men’s club. On his way to the club, the professor passes a portrait of a woman displayed in a gallery window and, mesmerized, pauses to admire the model’s beauty. While seated with his friends at the club, the professor confides that his life is stodgy and devoid of adventure, prompting Lalor to tease him about his wife’s absence and to warn him of the dangers of committing the slightest indiscretion.

What are the chances that Dr. Barkstane will heed his friend’s advice? How about zero to nil.

Enjoy the flm!

  1. Funny how I first took notice of Dan Duryea in FLIGHT OF THE PHOENIX where he was this really meek man. Boy, shocked at all those Westerns he was very evil in, and of course, this.

    • Oh, I love Flight of the Phoenix and I’d completely forgotten his performance in it — thanks for reminding me — I need to watch it again.
