FILM: Mrs. Langham
RELEASED: November, 1959
In Mrs. Langham, a film set in Cold War-era England, a young British female P.I. (Eleanor Blackington) tries to make a name for herself in a male dominated industry and world. When a beaten man comes to her in tears, begging for help, she teams up with American Detective Oscar Murphy (Henry Lenore), a man trying to escape from his soiled reputation, in order to solve the murder that would elevate her status and restore Murphy’s reputation among his peers. Featuring stunning performances from Watson and Lenore, this dramatic and chilling story is often credited as the most compelling film noir of the 1950s featuring a female lead.
