A small cast of characters for most of the movie, put on the show of a lifetime. Great performances from John Garfield, Lana Turner and Cecil Kellaway. Each in their own way earns Five Stars in my book. Lana Turner is glamorous, sexy and mysterious as any screen star before or after her. We see her munipulate John Garfield and her husband Cecil Kellaway. John Garfield is both the character Frank Chambers, a drifter who stops at a dinner for work and the narator. Through his eyes we see how his mind works and what he sees happening around him. It is spellbinding and a really fine movie by director Tay Garnett. If you haven't seen "The Postman Always Rings Twice" you are in the 90 minutes of high drama!
