rare italian noir
9 September 2019 | by happytrigger-64-390517See all my reviews

"La strada buia" is a rare italian and american coproduction in typical noir movie with an incredible number of flashbacks, when you watch the movie, you think it's endless. And for this coproduction, there are two directors, Girolami maybe for the italian team and Salkow maybe for directing the beautiful but not too wellknown Janis Paige who had played 2 noirs directed by Richard L Bare, "This side of the law" and "The house across the street". Janis Paige had a wonderful and hypnotizing face in these noirs, pity she didn't became a noir icon female. And she still has a wonderful face these last years, 97 in a few days.
