Jane Greer for Film Noir “Out Of The Past” (1946)

Film historians consider “Out of the Past” a superb example of film noir due to its complicated, dark storyline, dark cinematography and classic femme fatale. In the film a private eye escapes his past to run a gas station in a small town, but his past catches up with him. Now he must return to the big city world of danger, corruption, double crosses and duplicitous dames. Jane Greer (1924 –  2001) stars as femme fatale Kathie Moffat.

 

In 1991, Out of the Past was added to the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being deemed “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant.”

Vintage Photos of Jean Seberg on the set of Bonjour Tristesse (1958)

Bonjour Tristesse (“Hello, Sadness”) is a 1958 British-American Technicolor film in CinemaScope, directed and produced by Otto Preminger from a screenplay by Arthur Laurents based on the novel of the same title by Françoise Sagan.

A Guardian piece in 2012 described it as:

“an example of Hollywood’s golden age, and both its star and its famously tyrannical director are ripe for rediscovery.”

The film stars Jean Seberg as Cécile, a decadent young girl who lives with her rich playboy father, Raymond (David Niven). Anne (Deborah Kerr), a mature and cultured friend of Raymond’s late wife, arrives at Raymond’s villa for a visit.

Cécile is afraid that Anne will disrupt the undisciplined way of life that she has shared with her father, so she does her best to break up the relationship with Anne.
