Guest Introduction by Paul Karasik.

In this powerful film noir, a lonely cashier who is an amateur painter lets a beautiful woman believe that he is a wealthy artist. She uses him badly, pretending that his paintings are her creations. But when he finds her in the arms of her con-man lover, violence erupts.

He is the Development Director of the Martha’s Vineyard Public Charter School and lives in West Tisbury.

"A film noir so potent for its time that it was banned in Atlanta, Milwaukee and the entire state of New York."  - Matt Brunson, Creative Loafing

"Scarlet Street is arguably the darkest of Lang's American films." - Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
