The Postman Always Rings Twice (1946)

The Postman Always Rings Twice is a 1946 film noir starring Lana Turner, John Garfield, Cecil Kellaway, and Hume Cronyn. This is a not-to-missed film noir. Riveting.


The New York Times says, "It also comes off a tremendously tense and dramatic show, and it gives Lana Turner and John Garfield the best roles of their careers."

FilmSite.org says it's "one of the best film noirs of all time -and one of the earliest prototypes of today's 'erotic thrillers.'" Empire Online calls it "a triumph of plot-driven narrative and sparky dialogue." Rotten Tomatoes has a critics score of 95%.

  1. I'm off to see it now, because I have never seen it before. 2 hours of my life for something I've always wanted to see can't be a bad thing.

    2. I LOVED it, but got interrupted a couple of times while watching it. Still well worth the pauses.

    3. I get interrupted more often than not. I love having a video of some sort I can stop and then go back to. I'm glad you liked it, too :)
