Scarlet Street / Punainen katu. US 1945. D: Fritz Lang. VHS. Does not work so well on the box. The caricature in the characters and storytelling. In the final episode Dudley Nichols' vice of overemphasis has not been toned down. Edward G. Robinson's nightmare course starts to feel stupid because of the exaggerated effects. Yet I watched some parts of it many times with fascination.
