Angel face by Otto Preminger ( Visual )
4 editions published between 1952 and 2007 in English and held by 265 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
One of Preminger's 'moodily fluid studies in perverse psychology' made at Fox in the forties and early fifties, here with the recurring noir theme of fatally obsessive relationships. Characteristically Preminger plays down the hysteria inherent in melodrama and does not employ noir chiaroscuro. Mitchum's almost dreamy restraint has the effect of heightening the sense of fatalism. Simmons' real obsession is her father. Outwardly angelic but inwardly predatory, her very blankness, suggestive of icy sexuality runs counter to the femme fatale stereotype

4 editions published between 2001 and 2010 in English and held by 94 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Once upon a time in the West, Clint Eastwood earned himself a fistful of dollars - and instant stardom- when his 'Man With No Name' rode into town. In the mid-sixties Eastwood's Dollars trilogy with director Sergio Leone - A Fistful of Dollars, For a Few Dollars More and The Good, the Bad and the Ugly - gunned down all opposition at the world box office and created a visceral new brand of anti-Western, dubbed 'Spaghetti Westerns' by critics bemused by the films' popularity. Spaghetti Westerns' cynical morality tales of revenge, betrayal and mercenary avarice were filmed in the desert badlands
