Happy Halloween

Happy Halloween Wishes from lovely Ella Raines, seen here posing in a classic studio publicity shot.

Raines was a striking screen presence throughout the '40s and into the '50s, starring in favorite films such as PHANTOM LADY (1944), TALL IN THE SADDLE (1944), and IMPACT (1949).

Other notable titles in Raines' filmography include CRY HAVOC (1943), HAIL THE CONQUERING HERO (1944), THE SUSPECT (1944), THE STRANGE AFFAIR OF UNCLE HARRY (1945), THE RUNAROUND (1946), BRUTE FORCE (1947), A DANGEROUS PROFESSION (1949), THE WALKING HILLS (1949), and RIDE THE MAN DOWN (1952).

I'd love to watch her '50s TV series JANET DEAN, REGISTERED NURSE! Some episodes are available in iffy prints on YouTube. Oh, for a DVD release!

And for that matter, why isn't THE WEB (1947) with Edmond O'Brien and Vincent Price out on DVD? It's a Universal film...perhaps we can hope for a Noir City screening in the future? (May 2018: Ask and ye shall receive! THE WEB was screened at this month's Arthur Lyons Film Noir Festival. Here is my review.)

Previous Halloween Posts: Veronica Lake (2016), Barbara Bates (2015), Marsha Hunt (2014), Linda Darnell (2013), and the BEWITCHED cast (2012).
