Fox Film Noir (R1) in March


Fox Home Entertainment have announced the Region 1 DVD release of 3 Fox Film Noir titles on 11th March 2008. An electrifying drama about a predatory female – and the first crime-of-passion story to be presented in Cinemascope – Black Widow (1954) stars Ginger Rogers and Van Heflin as well as Gene Tierney and George Raft in a murderous tale of Broadway ambition. A classic love triangle featuring heartbreak and betrayal, Daisy Kenyon (1947) stars Joan Crawford and Henry Fonda, with a powerful supporting performance by noir-staple Dana Andrews and stunning black-and-white direction by Otto Preminger. Exploring the darkest corners of the mind, the classic psychological thriller Dangerous Passage stars Jeanne Crain and Michael Rennie in a high-seas mystery.
