Eureka Entertainment has today released HUMAN DESIRE, a hard-edged and chilling film-noir from legendary filmmaker Fritz Lang, starring Glenn Ford and Gloria Grahame. To celebrate the release we have 3 Blu-ray of The Masters of Cinema Series film up for grabs.
A startlingly dark, late film noir masterwork by director Fritz Lang, Human Desire reunites Lang with his hero Glenn Ford and femme fatale Gloria Grahame from the previous year’s The Big Heat and the screenwriter of Lang’s 1952 noir Clash by Night, Alfred Hayes. Like those two classics, Human Desire finds Lang casting a pitiless eye on all of the human weaknesses that define film noir: deception, infidelity, passion, and murder.
Adapted from the same Émile Zola novel previously filmed by Jean Renoir in La Bête humaine (1938), Lang’s gripping thriller has Ford as train engineer Jeff, just home from the Korean War. He’s instantly attracted to passenger Vicki (Grahame), not yet realising that she’s the abused wife of Jeff’s alcoholic railroad yard superior Carl (Broderick Crawford) — or that Vicki was just entangled in a jealousy-fuelled murder committed by Carl. As Jeff and Vicki embark on a steamy affair, she tells him about the crime, and Carl’s blackmail hold on her. If only Carl could be taken out of the picture…
The Masters of Cinema is proud to present one of this brilliant filmmaker’s most underrated films for the first time ever on Blu-ray.
