In this episode, we discuss Jacques Tourneur’s 1947 thriller, Out of the Past. It stars two of the most famous chin dimples of all time: Kirk Douglas and Robert Mitchum, and they are joined by the fabulous Jane Greer.
We highly recommend you watch the film with us, because it’s great. It can be found on DVD, but if you’re a streaming video person, it can also be found for streaming rental on Vudu and iTunes.
Our next episode will be about the steamy 1946 version of The Postman Always Rings Twice. Look for it on June 21st!
