You know, a dame with a rod is like a guy with a knitting needle

obert Mitchum lands his first starring role and along with Jane Greer and Kirk Douglas, creates one of the landmarks of Film Noir in Jacques Tourneur's classic Out Of The Past (1947).

Based on the novel " Build My Gallows High", Mitchum plays a former detective sent on a mission by a sinister gangster (Douglas) to find and retrieve his former girlfriend (Greer) who not only shot him, but also stole $40,000.00. Greer plays her like the pretty girl next door, who just happens to be homicidal. Mitchum falls hard, and as a result, is crossed, double crossed and framed for a coupla' killings. It's a murderous a trip down memory lane you won't soon forget. Steve Hayes
