The Woman in the Window (1944)

Free Great Movies Review

  •  (3.5 out of 5 stars)

Straightforward early film noir with Edward G. Robinson as a stodgy psychology professor who goes home with Joan Bennett, and then kills in self defense when her lover shows up. Instead of reporting the murder they decide to dump the body out of town. As the professor goes about his life he starts making Freudian slips to his friends that implicate him in the murder. And when a cynical private investigator shows up at Joan Bennett's door and asks for money to keep quiet about the murder, the tension tightens from there. The pacing is fairly slow, but it's all well laid out and Joan Bennett is a classic femme fatale. The twist ending might leave you dissatisfied or delighted. Fritz Lang would go on to direct a better film noir in The Big Heat (1953).
