Excellent example of film noir at its best
Full of atmosphere and heat, “Out of the Past” is a classic film noir, directed by a master, Jacques Tourneur. Although considered only an above-average B movie at the time of release, it’s doubtful anyone thinks of it that way today, as it is superior to many “A” films. With a top-notch cast and a deceptively easy pace that belies the tension and danger underneath, “Out of the Past” makes for an intriguing, absorbing film.
Robert Mitchum and Jane Greer make a great pair – both are sultry, sexy, hard to read, and gorgeous. I found Greer’s performance quite interesting. In the beginning, she appears quite warm, frightened, and sincere, as opposed to, say, Lizabeth Scott in “Dead Reckoning.” When she turns hardboiled, it’s subtle, with only a change in her eyes and voice, when she comments that Fisher isn’t going to say anything to anybody. I love the way Mitchum sizes up women. He absolutely smolders, and 40 years later, in “The Winds of War,” he was still smoldering.
Kirk Douglas is appropriately edgy in his supporting role as Whit. Rhonda Fleming has a small role, but no one that incredibly beautiful was going to go unnoticed for long.
What a wonderful film, what a perfect example of a genre.
