SYNOPSIS

Inspired by Jean Renoir's La Chienne, this is one of Frtiz Lang's most visually intense and enigmatic Hollywood films. A homely, bourgeois Sunday painter (Edward G Robinson) rescues bewitching Joan Bennett from a fake assault. It's a set-up, but here the victim turns dangerous and in the finale, works extraordinary variations on the classic German Street film formula.
