Flesh and Fantasy

USA | 1943 | 94 minutes | Julien Duvivier

February 17, 2018

Considered one of the greatest French directors (his Pepé le Moko launched the "poetic realism" that informed film noir), Duvivier escaped the war at home by bringing his incredible style to offbeat Hollywood films of the early '40s. This anthology of three supernatural tales-a proto-Twilight Zone-features a dazzling cast (Edward G. Robinson, Barbara Stanwyck, Charles Boyer, Robert Cummings, Thomas Mitchell) and exceptional camerawork by Stanley Cortez and Paul Ivano.
