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.”
