directed by Peter Godfrey
USA 1947

 

Matrimony means different things to different people. For temperamental artist Geoffrey Carroll, it means he’s in his element. And out of his mind. In their only screen pairing, two of film’s all-time greats star in a psychological thriller rife with pelting rain and pealing bells, blackmail and murder, calculated dread and an unnerving finale. Humphrey Bogart portrays Geoffrey, who’s making a habit of poisoning one wife and marrying another when the former no longer inspires his canvases. Barbara Stanwyck plays his current wife Sally, who puts two and two together and comes up with six – as in six feet under, the place she’ll be if she continues to accept the glass of milk Geoffrey regularly offers as a nightcap. Alexis Smith also stars as a predatory neighbor who becomes the object of Geoffrey’s thirst for feminine variety. Drink up, thriller fans!

Comments

The Two Mrs Carrolls, a Gothic noir starring Humphrey Bogart and Barbara Stanwyck, has its share of admirers and haters. Both actors give their all to this lackluster script of an endangered wife and a crazy husband, but there is still something that doesn't click to make this paring easily recommended.

Despite all the negative comments, the film deserves at least a single viewing and a newly remastered made-on-demand release from Warner Home Video can be recommended for that. The enhanced video is top quality, with very good contrast. There are a few marks and scratches here and there, but they are not intrusive. The mono audio is decent and there is a theatrical trailer included as an extra.
