"A 'film noir in color' (per Martin Scorsese) and a masterpiece of post-WW II American cinema...director John M. Stahl's gaze remains spare and precise, very Japanese in effect, like an acidic fusion of Ozu and Naruse." -The Time Out Film Guide
"[Technicolor] reached its astounding apogee in the lips of Gene Tierney, as red as a witch's apple. Each frame of her appears to be hand-tinted, as if she had ordered it." -Anthony Lane, The New Yorker
"A juicy entertainment...There are scenes to cherish." -Pauline Kael
Adapted from the Ben Ames Williams million-seller, Leave Her to Heaven (1945) was a blockbuster whose reputation has only grown with time. A juicy Technicolor melodrama with the shadowy heart of a film noir, it focuses on the alluring Ellen (the incomparable Gene Tierney), a femme fatale whose elegant exterior conceals depths of feverish jealousy which will drive her to the most heinous crimes. Although lushly photographed (by the great Leon Shamroy, whose work would win him a well-deserved Oscar), the film is directed with admirable austerity by veteran John M. Stahl, and features a potent score by Alfred Newman, available here as an isolated track.
Enjoy the extensive Julie Kirgo liner notes and film art packaged with the Blu-ray disc.
