  1. cyrildruesne's rating of the film Woman on the Run

    Bon scénario, avec un personnage principal presqu'absent du film !

  2. OGH's rating of the film Woman on the Run

    Un film miraculeusement sauvé du néant... Film noir court et efficace, à la fin un peu rapide... Le rôle principal pour une grande actrice, Ann Sheridan... L'image d'une époque , d'un style... Plutôt 3,5 que 4 étoiles.

  3. BUSTER TIERNEY's rating of the film Woman on the Run

    3,8/5 Quel film attachant ! L'exemple même de ce que le film noir de série B peut proposer comme bonne surprise : nerveux, qui ne s'embarrasse pas de légitimités psychologiques, humour tranchant, mise en scène efficace (bien qu'elle utilise les clichés des cadres inclinés et des éclairages nocturnes expressionnistes dans un N&B pandesque) et, au final, une plongée dans de troubles consciences...

  4. FISCHER's rating of the film Woman on the Run

    Exemplaire réussite du "film noir américain" qui accumule les accessits aussi bien dans la subtile sournoiserie de son scénario, que dans le lent cheminement d'un couple qui se retrouve après de temporels égarements, une splendide mise en scène et en situation de tout un monde de loosers ombrageux ou pathétiques, noyés dans la somptueuse grisaille de leur désenchantement. www.cinefiches.com

  5. Feng Ling's rating of the film Woman on the Run

    A story with potential but ruined mostly by Hays code.. A rare occurrence where knowledge of film history kills the ending. Although I suppose the ending thrill does follow Hitchcock's "made 'em despair but don't actually kill the protagonist" guideline, that is if I identified with the protagonists. Why ran away from police protection? And the Chinese dancer being so dense.. Didn't she know why Johnson is hiding?

  6. David R Williams's rating of the film Woman on the Run

    Minor noir to be sure but the amusement park climax is insane. And you've got to love all that rear projection.

  7. Rikard Westeman's rating of the film Woman on the Run

    A surprisingly comedic noir. The clever, quippy dialogue is a real treat. Ann Sheridan's terrific in the central role. A story which is kind of slight but the expertly directed, tense climactic sequence earns the film an extra star from me.

  8. greyladycine's rating of the film Woman on the Run

    3.5 But I'm giving it a four for the roller coaster ride. Must have been something in its day because it's still pretty impressive 66 years later. And also, San Francisco.

  9. mpho3's rating of the film Woman on the Run

    "Although WOTR opened strongly amidst positive critical reviews, attendance dwindled precipitously due in part to a bizarre advertising campaign that touted the movie as a woman’s picture: 'a probing study of the failure of modern marriage.' Quickly falling into obscurity, the film has been long and unjustly neglected, [when it should have been] heralded as a minor masterpiece.”-Steven K. Hill, UCLA Film & TV Archive

  10. msmichel's rating of the film Woman on the Run

    Tightly structured film noir that begs rediscovery. A man witnesses a murder and avoids becoming state witness by going on the lam. The police use his wife to track him down while she is accompanied by a reporter who may be more than he seems. Very well paced with a memorable climax in an amusement park. Worth looking for.

  11. Brian Gutierrez's rating of the film Woman on the Run

    The balance of comedy and tension with the search for Frank kept me going through the film. Everything worked well with their approach and I enjoyed just watching the film more than the other restored noir this month. Nothing against that film, but this one was fun to watch.

  12. Slappy McGee's rating of the film Woman on the Run

    (3.5 stars) Good Noir fun to be had here. The final scene alone is TERRIFYING and awesome!!! Great entry into this genre. Ann Sheridan is amazingly good.

  13. captainfez's rating of the film Woman on the Run

  14. El Biffo's rating of the film Woman on the Run

    "I thought the police were supposed to protect people - not put them in danger." // Fabulous S.F. scenery, but the finale isn't Playland-at-the-Beach in S.F., it was filmed at Pacific Ocean Park in Santa Monica. However, you can still visit Laughing Sal, the maniacal automaton from that scene, at the Musee Mecanique, located in the former location of Sutro Baths and Playland-At-The-Beach in S.F..

  15. Quattro's rating of the film Woman on the Run

    What a surprise! I mean it: it starts off with the most classic cliché; then charms you with its dry humor; then moves you with an unexpected, bitter love story; and finally, turns out with a thrilling climax. Maybe its most remarkable quality is how organically all these elements fit together, and how they give unsuspectable depth to the plainest plot. Now that's how you write a screenplay.

  17. panagiotatos's rating of the film Woman on the Run

  18. corycorycorycory's rating of the film Woman on the Run

    "I've had just about enough of the wise male." Pretty sharp movie, though it lacks....something. Maybe it's the 50s patter like dialog.

  19. Alberto Funkledink's rating of the film Woman on the Run

    Nice little film that, nice little film.

  20. Le temps perdu's rating of the film Woman on the Run

    Classic film noir with a predictable plot twist at the end, compensated by snappy dialogue and beautiful street views of San Francisco.

  21. Paul's rating of the film Woman on the Run

    nice, very nice, great actress, great dialogue

  22. Holly Hinson's rating of the film Woman on the Run

    Noir romp, not as powerful as its contemporaries but worth a watch

  23. Magic Lantern Alison's rating of the film Woman on the Run

    Sharp, snappy writing, gripping plot, a rollercoaster of a movie and an incredible time capsule. Wonderful!

  24. Adam M's rating of the film Woman on the Run

    Ann Sheridan serves up some noir sass, and the San Francisco scenery is fun: the Laffin' Sal cameo is a nice touch. But what was the crime in the first place?
