Synopsis

REMEMBERING ROBERT MITCHUM


“There just isn't any pleasing some people. The trick is to stop trying.”


Robert Mitchum, born a century ago, is a timelessly iconic actor who embodied the rugged and solitary anti-hero in over 100 classic thrillers, dramas, westerns, thrillers and even the occasional comedy. At the time of his death in 1997 he was one of the last regularly working stars from Hollywood's golden age, still larger than life but still self-deprecating about his greatness and his achievements.



TRAILING ROBERT MITCHUM (PG)


A look back at some of Mitchum's finest moments as captured by that most evocative of lost art forms, the classic cinema trailer...



+ OUT OF THE PAST (PG)


Often declared 'the perfect film noir', the bitter and cynical OUT OF THE PAST finds Mitchum at his most romantically morose and fatalistic -  a gritty, stylish performance which turned the film actor into an instant movie star.


Jeff Bailey is working anonymously as the owner of a small-town gas station when the past comes calling. Flashbacks recall a

remarkable string of double crosses and shocking revelations until the story comes full circle...


A taut, acerbic script by Daniel Mainwaring, adapting his own novel, and Jacques Tourneur's evocative direction are inspired. Mitchum's great performance is more than matched by slick, smooth-talking gambler Kirk Douglas, and Jane Greer is a revelation as the archetypal femme fatale – an enigma with the face of an angel and the impulses of a viper.
