Juggling men is a key skill for any femme fatale. Jane Greer tries to keep seductive gangster and ex-boyfriend Kirk Douglas at bay while she explores new opportunities with laconic, cavalier Robert Mitchum. Not as easy as it sounds, given that Douglas hires Mitchum to track her down. See Jane work all the angles in French-born director Jacques Tourneur’s seminal film noir.
