Woman They Almost Lynched

Screening on Film
Directed by Allan Dwan.
With John Lund, Brian Donlevy, Audrey Totter.
US, 1953, 35mm, color, 90 min.

Woman They Almost Lynched stands strong among the 400 films under the direction of Allan Dwan from 1915 to 1961. A film almost forgotten, in the noir shadow of Johnny Guitar, of Robert Siodmak’s The Dark Mirror, or perhaps the paired females in High Sierra (Joan Leslie and Ida Lupino) or Colorado Territory (Dorothy Malone and Virginia Mayo), Dwan’s feature ramps up spite and violence through the brilliant work of the late and lamented Audrey Totter.
