Great On Screen Couples: Joan Bennett and Edward G Robinson.
Joan Bennett and Edward G Robinson, are one of my favorite film Noir "On Screen Couples". They performed together in two very successful film noirs: The Woman in the Window (1944), which is definitely not a predictable film. The powerful psychological mind games, is one of the best I have seen on film. I believe this film is a "gotta see", and I don't think you will be disappointed.
Their next film together, Scarlet Street (1945). The film is about a man named Chris Cross, who retires after 25 years as a cashier.One rainy night, he saves Kitty from her abusive boyfriend. As a amateur painter Chris lets Kitty think he's a wealthy artist and sets her up in a nice apartment. Chris paints masterpieces and sells them under Kitty's name, with unexpected results.
These two films are some of Joan Bennett's, best known films with the help of, Edward G Robinson's, wonderful performance, who has played many type of characters throughout his acting career..
