Allan Arkush on

The Man I Love

Released 1947
Distributor Warner Bros.

Raoul Walsh gets a powerhouse performance out of an exhausted Ida Lupino in an atmospheric noir soaper that was originally intended for Ann Sheridan. This troubled production received mixed reviews, but it touched an audience nerve and became a big hit. One of Martin Scorsese’s favorites.
