Film - Out of The Past (1947)

Out of the Past (1947, dir Jacques Tourneur).  A man (Robert Mitchum) tries to escape his past (Kirk Douglas) but a femme fatale (Jane Greer) won't let him.  This film is classic noir and noir is not about second chances.

Great flick. The director tells a great story about how Mitchum and Douglas were competing as to who could under-act the most. Let me find the excerpt - I think I posted it once.
