This quintessential film noir?with all the elements of corruption, sex, winners and losers?follows an amateur painter who tries to protect a young woman. In the throes of a mid-life crisis, mild-mannered Christopher Cross (Edward G. Robinson) befriends the sultry Kitty March (Joan Bennett) and convinces her that he possesses a great fortune. But then Kitty's abusive boyfriend manipulates her into conning him out of the money?with disastrous results. Directed by Fritz Lang, SCARLET STREET also stars legendary Hollywood bad guy Dan Duryea.
