CLASH BY NIGHT
1952, Warner Bros., 105 min, USA, Dir: Fritz Lang

Director Fritz Lang adds plenty of sizzle to Clifford Odets’ play about a love triangle in a coastal town. A wash-out in New York, Barbara Stanwyck returns home to Monterey, where fisherman Paul Douglas takes a shine to her - but she’s a lot more compatible with cynical film projectionist Robert Ryan. Marilyn Monroe charms in a small role as a cannery worker smitten with Stanwyck’s brother.
