Build My Gallows High

Jacques Tourneur USA, 1947

Jim's rating of the film Goldenes Gift

★★★★ / 35mm /Tourneur’s gorgeous noir, exquisitely shot, is a haze of shadows, cigarette smoke, femme fatales and double crosses, Mitchum, momentous in the lead, as is Greer, a devilish creature of self-determination. A remarkable script, the idea of the past as a haunting nightmare to awake from, is taken full advantage by Tourneur who orchestrates a tragic tale of hearts and rage extinguishing.
