New from A Reel of One’s Own by Andrea Thompson: 52 Films By Women: Death is a Caress (1949)

By Andrea Thompson

It’s still Noirvember, and I wanted to mark the occasion with another noir film directed by a woman. Having discussed Ida Lupino’s “Outrage” last week, my options were predictably limited. Lupino was practically the only female director working in Hollywood at the time, and breaking it down by the genre made pickings far slimmer if I wanted to focus on a film by a different director.
