This is one of those movies you wouldn't want to pick for date night.

Directed by Otto Preminger, 1952's Angel Face is a nicely paced Crime/Thriller about passion gone haywire.

With the innocent face of an angel, and the deceptive heart of a devil, the young and alluring Diane Tremayne uses her many seductive charms to set up the handsome ambulance driver, Frank Jessup, as the fall guy when she secretly plots out the fool-proof murder of her wealthy stepmother in order to collect on her inheritance.

In Angel Face it's all flimsy alibis, heartless betrayals, and thrilling courtroom drama, compounded by the fire of a femme fatale who's too dangerous to trust, but too enticing to resist.

Set in and around Beverly Hills, Angel Face, which was filmed in b&w, stars one of my fave movie tough-guys from the early 1950s, Robert Mitchum.

Trust me, your cheating beloved will get his, one day. In the mean time, enjoy watching Robert Mitchum get his, and more, from fairy princess Jean Simmons.
