Matinee Thursday @ Epiphany: The Postman Always Rings Twice
Lana Turner, John Garfield, Cecil Kellaway
Turner/MGM; Directed by Tay Garnett
Black and White; Not Rated; 113 minutes; 1946
A classic example of film-noir. Lana Turner and John Garfield are superb as the lovers in this story of dark sexuality, corruption, and retribution. Based on the novel by James M. Cain, the film relies on subtle innuendo, rather than graphic details, to express the Cain world of violence and sin.
