Classic Film: "The Woman in the Window," part of the Mysteries of Life film series
(1944, 99 minutes, Black and White) Directed by Fritz Lang. Legendary filmmaker Fritz Lang directs this psychological thriller about an unassuming college professor (Edward G. Robinson) who becomes involved with a beautiful model (Joan Bennett) and finds himself ensnared in a web of blackmail, deception and murder. A masterful storyteller, Lang is in top form as he weaves this spellbinding noir, replete with stunning cinematography, sublime editing and pitch-perfect direction. The Woman in the Window shows that good and evil are present in all, and that circumstances frequently dictate moral choices.
