Film Fashion Friday: The Dark Corner (1946)

Hello Readers!! Welcome to week three of actress month. This week's Lucy selection come from 1946, The Dark Corner. This has to be my favorite non-Dana Andrews film noir. Lucy and Mark Stevens are great together!! Mark plays a PI who gets framed for a murder. Lucy is his eager to help secretary -- in one of her best nonmusical roles (in my opinion). This is a wonderful Fox noir that features a great supporting cast, including Clifton Webb.

Kay Nelson designed the costumes -- putting Lucy in a slue of post war suits complete with great coats and bags. Other great Nelson pictures include Leave Her to Heaven, Boomerang, Gentleman's Agreement, and Miracle on 34th Street.

While Lucy's costumes are more "everyday" clothes, I think this film does a great job of accurately representing the normal middle class; something I think many Classical Hollywood films struggle with. Plus, I just love Lucy's role as Mark Stevens' "Girl Friday!"

Every time I watch The Dark Corner, I can't get over how much Mark Stevens looks like a combination of Dana Andrews and Robert Walker. I have a mad crush on Andrews!! I think like Dana Andrews, Mark Stevens is a very underrated actor. He is pretty good in this film, especially for a studio produced B film and some of his other films are exceptionally wonderful pictures.
This week's honorable mention has Lucy playing a money hungry chorus girl -- a more typical role for Ball -- in Dance, Girl, Dance (1940). For that reason, I have put this selection in the honorable mention section rather than the main film. This film is included in a box set of Lucy films and often gets brought up when thinking about Lucy's early career before I Love Lucy.

My goal with this series is the feature lesser known films and roles for big stars. I don't think The Dark Corner doesn't get talked about enough and my hope is that many of you will check out the film. Both of these films are available on DVD and Netflix.

Check back next Friday for the final Lucy week. If you would like to see another actress month, leave a comment with the actress of your choice. There will be an Audrey Hepburn week, as I have had a few request for her.

After readinging this article, I had to remark on your segment of
Washington, DC. I agree with all of the activites and work
opportunties, and so on that the area must supply.
But I'd have to disagree that "there are slightly far more women than males in Washington, D.C., but about 33% of the populace is solitary." Slightly is an understatement! There are A lot more females than guys, about 7-8 females more than males. Thinking about the population's ethnic history, relationship preferences and sexualty,
these stats differ. Several social businesses, meetups, and clubs host social and cultural occasions, like dating events that constantly are in want of more males.
And as a result of there be more males than females,
many of them want to carry on to become single and
enjoy the many one women in the location as an alternative to settling down to possess a family.
I invite you to get a video digital camera to the streets of DC and job interview the ladies and find out
what kind of feedback you receive contradictory to your stats.

I live in Dallas. Even though you'll find almost twenty,000 more males within this metropolis than women, this figure is a bit misleading. There is a high quantity of gay males, in addition to immigrant employees, who skew the figures. All of the locations around the listing seem to be huge towns that probably have similar forms of populations. If you're just hunting for any fantastic location to party then it's fantastic. If you're searching for any boyfriend or husband, you'll be unhappy.
