The Postman Always Rings Twice ★★★½ 1946

Even without the brutal sexuality of the James M. Cain novel, Garfield and Turner sizzle as the lustladen lovers in this lurid tale of fatal attraction. Garfield steals the show as the streetwise drifter who blows into town and lights a fire in Turner. As their affair steams up the two conspire to do away with her husband and circumstances begin to spin out of control. Tense and compelling. A classic. 113m/B VHS, DVD . Lana Turner, John Garfield, Cecil Kellaway, Hume Cronyn, Leon Ames, Audrey Totter, Alan Reed; D: Tay Garnett; W: Harry Ruskin, Niven Busch; C: Sidney Wagner; M: George Bassman.
