HANGOVER SQUARE
1945, 20th Century Fox, 77 min, USA, Dir: John Brahm

Perhaps the best 1940s thriller that no one has ever seen. Laird Cregar is memorable as a Victorian-era composer beset by blackouts. Is he also a marauding murderer? His passion for luscious singer Linda Darnell inspires betrayal, revenge - and the climactic "Concerto Macabre," one of composer Bernard Herrmann's most thrilling pieces of music.
