The Postman Always Rings Twice (1946)- John Garfield and Lana Turner

On TCM Sat 9/24- An Adaption of the James Cain novel The Postman Always Rings Twice (1946) directed by Tay Garnett with screen greats John Garfield and Lana Turner as murder co-conspirators getting support from great character actors Cecil Kellaway as the victim, Hume Cronyn as the clever defense lawyer, and Leon Ames as the local prosecutor. Love how the prison bar shadows on the wall in some scenes bring out the Noir entrapment of Garfield and Turner. A very ironic movie well casted and directed.
