When middle-aged milquetoast cashier Chris Cross rescues street-walking bad girl Kitty from the rain-slicked gutters of Greenwich Village, he plunges into a whirlpool of lust, larceny and revenge. As his obsession grows, Chris is corrupted, humiliated and transformed into an avenging monster before implacable fate and perverse justice triumph in the most satisfyingly downbeat denouement in the history of American film.
Packed with hairpin plot twists and despite being banned in three states, Scarlet Street was a box-office hit and one of legendary director Fritz Lang’s finest American films.
