Devil in a red dress
10 May 2016 | by (The Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Giancarlo Esposito travels to LA after an invitation from his friend Bill Nunn. Arriving at Nunn's boarding house, Esposito spots a sultry dame, Cynda Williams, who seduces him and they have sex minutes after. Turns out Williams is Nunn's girl! Williams works as a nightclub singer but she wants out, to move on to bigger and better opportunities. Because Esposito is an unknown face in town, they want him to steal her contract from the nightclub. Esposito becomes a barman at the club but can't get the contract, so one night Williams and Nunn create a diversion so he has more time. Death and double-crosses ensue...

This episode's based on a short story by Walter Mosley ('Devil In A Blue Dress'), with a classic femme fatale and not one but two suckers (altho no doubt there have been many more before them). The story is not really surprising but it's executed well by director Jim McBride and the principal actors.

This one starts off in black & white, establishing the friendship between Esposito and Nunn while showing the rampant discrimination of the 40s, before moving on to a muted color scheme, which works well. It's not a stand-out episode in this series, but it is still a joy to watch. 7/10
