Moonfleet (1955) Directed by Fritz Lang
I'm getting a real kick from my DVD purchases from the Warner Archives. Lots of films. TV shows, cartoons that have never been put to DVD. This was something I had not seen in many years and I was great to see it again. Staring Stewart Granger and a varied cast of many know character actors such as George Sanders, Jack Elam and Alan Naiper (Batman 66). The story concerns a smuggling operation in a wayward English town in the late 1750's operated by Granger. This film is in color but is directed by Fritz Lang. His German Impressionism on the countryside sets and over all mood really stand out as well as Granger's performance. Great classic stuff.
