Human Desire

Director Fritz Lang reunites with stars Glenn Ford and Gloria Grahame for this 1954 follow-up to The Big Heat. In this one, Ford plays a railroad engineer just back from Korea, who falls in love with his co-worker's wife and starts thinking about a little murder. Based on the book La Bête Humaine by Émile Zola. It's quite a bit more melodramatic than Jean Renoir's 1938 adaptation, but Lang's direction is fascinating as always. Part of the Guild's film noir double feature. Teamed with The Big Heat. 91 minutes
