â€œSheâ€™s a great kid. You can always trust herâ€¦to double-cross you.â€ Flaxy Martin is one of the most fatal of femme fatales ever to sear the screen â€“ and provides a white-hot showcase role for the undersung Virginia Mayo, ounce for ounce matching in menace her White Heat costar James Cagney in his stone-cold criminality that same year. Spinning a web of lies, the nasty nightclub chanteuse ensnares one lover, unsuspecting mob attorney Walter Colby (Zachary Scott), into taking the rap for a murder, while stringing along her other squeeze, gangster Hap Richie (Douglas Kennedy), for all heâ€™s worth. The one fly in this spider-womanâ€™s ointment: Colby escapes en route to prison and, rescued and restored by good-girl librarian Nora Carson (Dorothy Malone), he plots to return and clear his name. With dialogue by David Lang so hard-boiled youâ€™ll grin with noirish glee and a delicious performance by The Maltese Falconâ€™s Elisha Cook Jr. in fullbore wisecracking gunsel mode, this tale of a deadly dame duping one chump too many is a helluva ride.

An iconic product of the Mexican Revolution, Redes (1935) combines the talents of a master composer, Silvestre Revueltas, and a master cinematographer, Paul Strand. Its marriage of music and the moving image attains heights of epic grandeur. The co-directors are Fred Zinnemann (en route to Hollywood) and Emilio Gomez Muriel. Because dialogue rarely overlaps music, it is possible to re-record Revueltas's galvanizing score and discover musical riches inaudible on the original monaural soundtrack. As the Redes concert suites by revueltas and Erich Kleiber omit much, the present DVD is the world premiere recording of Revueltas's full score, one of the highest achievements in the history of film music.
