Go see Leave Her to Heaven tonight @ SIFF Cinema!
My birthday's tomorrow, but I'm giving all of you a present today. One of my favorite noirs is playing at SIFF Cinema tonight, starring glossy Goddess Gene Teirney at her bad girl best. Forget Fatal Attraction - Leave Her to Heaven is the real deal (Teirney's Ellen Bennet could take Glen Close's Alex down in 2.5 seconds).
Glorious Technicolor? Check. Swelling dramatic music? Check. Totally oblivious handsome nice guy? Check. Plain jane, innocent sister? Check. Hapless victims? Boy howdy - CHECK. Check and check. I don't even need to *mention* Vincent Price's brilliance as the snotty snubbed fiance to get you to go, do I?
Seriously people. This film is PURE GOLD. If you haven't seen it, now's your chance. If it's been so long you can't remember, you have to go! And if you just want to see it on the big screen because your DVD isn't cutting it - get yourself out to SIFF Cinema tonight at 7:30. Go, go and GO.
You can buy tickets online here.
