Kick-Back Friday: #88
Criss Cross (1947): More noir with Lancaster. And about as complicated as noir gets—which is pretty complicated.
The paripatetic Steve (Burt Lancaster) returns to Los Angeles, where he pursues his gorgeous ex-wife Anna (Yvonne De Carlo, aka Mrs. Munster), who’s hooked up with Slim Dundee,* the local mob boss. But Anna is inconstant in love…or in deciding her best option.
P.S. Check out De Carlo’s dance partner in the Round-up Bar.
* I just wanted to write out that name, ’cause it’s so goofy.
