Second Film Noir The Second Woman
Here is another “light” noir that brings style and mystery but not too much pathos or violence. Film noirs have been called a genre, a period, a style, a cycle, a mood or a tone. It’s a big church. This little gem does not have an urban setting or a macho investigator; it has instead lovely California coastal views and a modernist house, much a part of the plot. It also has a highly analytical serene female investigator and no femme fatale instigating a crime for lust or money. And yet, it feels from the very beginning very much a Noir. The music plays a critical role in bringing a sense of threat and nicely played against the beauty of the landscape. The adorable and level-headed Betsy Drake was casting genius against the drier and confused Robert Young.
