Though hamstrung a bit by the hypnotic hookum the villain uses to dupe our heroine into a murder frame-up, with the way director Otto Preminger paints her into a corner in Whirlpool, I wasn’t sure they were going to get the lovely Gene Tierney out of this airtight mess let alone how — but I encourage you all to find out for yourselves just how they do. Props to Charles Bickford as the well-seasoned detective in charge and Jose Ferrer’s despicable David Korvo belongs in the Film Noir Villain Hall of Fame.
