Too Late for Tears (1949)
Approximate running time 102mins. Subtitles available.
Starring: Arthur Kennedy, Dan Duryea and Lizabeth Scott
When a pair of film noir icons like Lizabeth Scott and Dan Duryea collide, sparks are sure to fly. Jane Palmer (Scott) and her husband Alan (Arthur Kennedy) mysteriously have $60,000 literally dropped in their laps. The circumstances seem mighty suspicious to Alan, who wants to turn the money over to the police. But in a materialistic rapture, Jane won’t let it go. She doesn’t care where it came from, or what danger might ensue-- not if it will bring her the luxury she craves.
Enter shady Danny Fuller (Duryea, as cocky and menacing as ever), who claims the money belongs to him. Let the games begin! Roy Huggins’ snappy script (adapted from his novel) is complex, breezy and black-hearted.
