    Description

    Out of the Past (RKO, 1947). Title Lobby Card (11" X 14"). This multi-layered film noir classic is the one that wrote the vocabulary of the genre. Jacques Touneur, creator of "Cat People" and "I Walked with a Zombie", directs the film from a script partially written by an uncredited James M. Cain and credited to Daniel Mainwaring, based on his novel called "Build My Gallows High". Tourneur's masterful ability to create a doom-laden, dark, shadowy mood of terror, assisted by black and white cinematographer Nicholas Musuraca, is perfectly blended into this tragic film noir classic. Robert Mitchum gives the defining performance of his career, and Jane Greer, vividly portrays the erotic and lethal femme fatale. Posters for this film have always been difficult. Fine/Very Fine.
