A Movie That Gets Everything Right

By Magma-Flow

Comments about Crossroads (1942) (MOD):

"Crossroads" (1942) perfectly balances the light touch of 1930s comedies (supplied here by the actors William Powell, Felix Bressart, and Sig Ruman) with the emerging themes of film noir (mental illness, a haunting past, dual identities). In this way, it's a proto-film noir like "I Wake Up Screaming" (1941). It's fascinating to watch how Powell adapts his ironic persona to the new psychological menaces of the 1940s. A warning to you guys with a crush on Hedy Lamarr: prepare for a heart attack at the way she reads the line "David, when does a bride become a wife?"

    Comments about Crossroads (1942) (MOD):

    I really loved this film and when it was over i saw once more. The William Powell role was far different than his role as Nick in the Thin Man.
    And Hedy Lamarr was ravishing next to William Powell and her acting was stronger in this Film.
    The supporting stars also marvelous. Claire Trevor singing in that black gown with one glove.WOW!!!!!

      Comments about Crossroads (1942) (MOD):

      William Powell at his urbane and witty best as a prominent French diplomat who may or may not have been a nefarious criminal in his past. When blackmailer Basil Rathbone shows up you don't know who to believe and will be kept guessing until the movie's final mopments. Lots of twists and turns and a great cast including the always-breathtaking Hedy Lamarr.
