Before she played Elizabeth Taylor’s suburban mother in the Father of the Bride movies, Joan Bennett was already a stunning femmes fatale of the silver screen. In this film gem directed by Fritz Lang (Metropolis), she’s again up to no good, upturning the life of poor Edward G. Robinson, a mild cashier. Despite its art-world background, it’s a tawdry tale of greed and lust.
