Picture perfect in practically every way is the Film-Noir masterpiece, The Postman Always Rings Twice, with stellar performances by John Garfield and Lana Turner, with undeniable precision-point support by Hume Cronyn, Cecil Kellaway and Leon Ames; directed by Tay Garnett (in my opinion he reached his apex with this film), Sidney Wagner was the cinematographer (stark, black & white beauty), Irene designed the costumes, Edwin B. Willis did the set decoration while Randall Duell and Cedric Gibbons took care of the art-decoration.
I never tire of this film, watching as it were the inevitable choices that the characters make, ever drawing them closer to the impending doom, which the viewer sees from the beginning. Enjoy the Postman in all of it’s glory on Blu-Ray.
Note from the side: The Postman Always Rings Twice was produced for radio by The Screen Guild Theater for CBS Radio, on June 16, 1947, with John Garfield and Lana Turner reprising their roles, supported by The Lady Esther Screen Guild Players (Lady Esther Cosmetics was the sponsor of The Screen Guild Theater when Postman was aired).
