The Phantom Lady

1 year, 6 months ago at Nov 17 2:32
B-picture director extraordinaire, Robert Siodmak, crafts this taunt little thriller about a devoted secretary (Ella Raines) going above and beyond to clear the name of her framed boss. That’s essentially the beginning and the end of the film aside from a few sequences of tremendous visual and tonal power.

View all Phantom Lady reviews
The first of the celebrated noirs made by genre master Robert Siodmak puts an intriguing, protofeminist spin on the hard-boiled detective genre. Based on a novel by pulp existentialist Cornell Woolrich, PHANTOM LADY stars Ella Raines as a secretary who descends into the seedy underbelly of the New York City night world in order to track down a mysterious woman, the only witness who she believes can help clear her boss of a murder rap. Elisha Cook Jr.’s frenzied, sexually charged drum solo is one of the indelible highlights of this descent into dreamlike dread.

The Phantom Lady

“B-picture director extraordinaire, Robert Siodmak, crafts this taunt little thriller about a devoted secretary (Ella Raines) going above and beyond to clear the name of her framed boss. That’s essentially the beginning and the end of the film aside from a few sequences of tremendous visual and tonal power. Phantom Lady isn’t exactly an undercover gem waiting for rediscovery and extraction, but it’s better than its limited reputation would suggest.   The opening scenes suggest the oncoming post-war malaise and loneliness that would flourish in films like In a Lonely Place. And soon we’re in familiar realm – the wronged man getting framed for the crime and a plucky amateur detective figuring out the subterranean intrigue swirling all around them. Phantom Lady has this in spades,” read more
