I had this sitting in a Netflix envelope for over a year and finally watched it the other day.  What a gorgeous film - in so many different ways.  It was such a different New York City and an entirely different time, which is exactly why it is something of a "ship in the bottle" kind of film. 

 

Shot on Plus-X (I believe,) William H. Daniels' photography is amazing.  This was by far my favorite frame, not only for the lighting and composition, but also because it visually depicts the multi-dimensionality of the story (which happens to be a murder-mystery.)

 

Required viewing for any film student/lover.
