Film noir, a classic film style of the '40s and '50s, is noted for its dark themes, stark camera angles and high-contrast lighting. Comprising many of Hollywood's finest films, film noir tells realistic stories about crime, mystery, femmes fatales and moral conflict.
Joan Crawford, Dana Andrews and Henry Fonda deliver dazzling performances in this "highly polished, slick triangle melodrama" (The Film Daily) based on the novel by Elizabeth Janeway, and directed by Otto Preminger!
Daisy Kenyon (Crawford) is a lovelorn commercial artist caught in a romantic triangle with two men - one she loves but cannot have and one whose love she cannot return. While in an emotionally draining love affair with married attorney Dan O'Mara (Dana Andrews), who refuses to leave his wife, she meets returning army sergeant Peter Lapham (Henry Fonda) - a decent and gentle man - who instantly falls in love with here. Althought she carries a torch for Dan, she knows Peter will give her the secure life she desires and she agrees to marry him. But when Dan divorces his wife, Daisy is suddenly torn between her obligations... and her passions.
