Film noir, a classic film style of the Ä‘40s and Ä‘50s, is noted for its dark themes, stark camera angles and high-contrast lighting. Comprising many of HollywoodÄ’s finest films, film noir tells realistic stories about crime, mystery, femmes fatales and conflict.
Jean Peters stars as New York cover girl Vicki Lynn, whose fame came fast and hard, and so does her murder. Her press agent Steve Christopher (Elliott Reid) and her sister Jill (Jeanne Crain) are placed under the microscope by relentless police lieutenant Ed Cornell (Richard Boone), who derives sadistic pleasure from interrogating them. And there is no lack of other suspects in VickiÄ’s death, despite the fact that Jill found Steve standing over the body. Suspense builds as the characters remember moments in VickiÄ’s lightning rise to the top of café society. Max Showalter plays SteveÄ’s columnist pal, Carl Betz is a police detective and Aaron Spelling operates the telephone switchboard at VickiÄ’s hotel.
