"Black Angel" is a 1946
black-and-white film noirbased on the novel by Cornell Woolrich. It was directed by Roy William Neill, who directed many of the Sherlock Holmesfilm series. This was his last film.
A falsely convicted man's wife, Catherine (June Vincent), and an alcoholic piano man, Martin (Dan Duryea) team up in an attempt to clear husband of the murder of the drunkard's wife. Their investigation leads them to face-to-face confrontations with a determined policeman (Broderick Crawford) and a shifty nightclub owner (Peter Lorre). Catherine, as the investigation goes on, begins to suspect her new partner of the crime.
"Dark City: The Film Noir", by Spencer Selby, calls "Black Angel": "Important, stylish B-noir, featuring Dan Duryea as the ironic central character."
Writer Cornell Woolrich hated this adaption of his story which, aside from the conclusion, differed greatly from his book.
