FINE COLLECTION OF 50'S NOIR....
Mark Norvell | HOUSTON | 07/25/2010
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Although all the films contained here are worthy of a collection, the main reason I bought this set is 1954's "Human Desire"--- a remake of Jean Renoir's 1938 "La Bete Humaine" with Simone Simon from the story by Emile Zola. Fritz Lang reunited Glenn Ford and Gloria Grahame from Lang's 1953 "The Big Heat" for this murder tale. While not packing the same punch as "Heat", the film still offers a compelling look at a sexy woman, Vicki (Grahame), trapped in a miserable marriage to brutish Broderick Crawford and ensnaring ex-GI Ford in a web of deceit and murder. Set at a dreary railroad yard, "Desire" offers an oppressive atmosphere and a heavy performance from Crawford as a murderously jealous husband. Grahame matches him as his younger,restless wife with her own agenda. Ford is the quiet, nice everyman drawn to Grahames' sultry allure. "Human Desire" had previously been available only in inferior form. Here, it looks great---a b&w treat of powerhouse acting and illicit schemes 50's style. I'm just not crazy about the current trend of packaging discs by stacking them. I just feel it's too easy for them to be damaged. Yet, there we are. Enjoy the whole set, but don't overlook "Human Desire"."
