Fallen Angel (1945)


Linda Darnell really makes Fallen Angel come alive. But unfortunately it is at the expense of Alice Faye’s part.

Alice Faye plays June Mills who is all sunshine and lollipops. She is billed first but the story is her part kept getting shrunk and shooting went on in favor of Linda Darnell who is cynical, mean. and snappy with the comebacks. She plays games, tilts her head, bats her eyes. Basically brings it from Squaresville to Noir City with no stops.

Poor Dana Andrews as Eric Stanton. He keeps waffling between the blonde and the one in the toiben. He looks great in a Fedora which is requisite #1.

Worth a watch to see Linda and Dana’s repartee.
