Movies You Might Have Missed: The Glass Key

Alan Ladd and Veronica Lake starred together in four noir (or noir-ish) films in the 1940's. Ladd plays his typical tough-guy role, Lake does her part as the femme fatale and though the ending is Hollywood, it's recognizably in the neighborhood of noir. Who knows, maybe they did so well as star-crossed lovers in rough circumstances because they both had the same sort of darkness inside that led each to basically drink themselves to death.
