Scarlet Street 1945, starring Edward G. Robinson. German director Fritz Lang is best known for the highly influential films from relatively early in his career. But he also had a brief Hollywood heyday during the mid 1940s, when he made some of his best films. Scarlet Street has been claimed by film noir. The lighting is dark, with heavy use of shadows. The characters are all shady. It is in reality a black comedy. A superb story with outstanding execution by the actors.
