I just watched Darnell in FALLEN ANGEL. Oh my.
She was something — and “Fallen Angel” is a nifty little noir. Have you ever seen “Angel Face”, also by Preminger? One of the major noirs.
No, I haven’t, but I’m bumping it to the top of my list. Fun to find out that Godard considered it one of the top 10 American sound films.
I wouldn’t rank it that high — though I understand why Godard found it so exciting — but it’s definitely one of the top ten noirs. Fun also to know that Mitchum decked Preminger on the set one day for being mean to Jean Simmons.
