One of the greatest black and white film noir classics. Excellent performances by Robert Mitchum and Jane Greer, great supporting performances from Kirk Douglas and Rhonda Fleming. Great story, dialogue and dark moody cinematography. Excellent direction by Jacques Tourneur. Worth a watch... 9/10

They don't write or make them like this any more...the script is a blast,full of sarcasm and innuendos,the acting,young Mitchum and Douglas together,is Hollywood perfect and the black and white appropriate for a film noir but very reassuring for today's standards...I love those raincoats,half ties and hats... and didn't they just chain smoke from start to finish!?....a pleasant time travelling then,keeping the martini dry...5/5.

Great classic crime film noir, Jane Greer was a lovely woman, Classy but deadly. This is up there with 'Double Indemnity' and the other greats from the 40's. 5/5

Film historians consider "Out of the Past" a superb example of film noir.The film featured many of the genre's hallmarks: a cynical private detective as the protagonist,a femme fatale,multiple flashbacks with voiceover narration, dramatically shadowed photography,and a fatalistic mood leavened with provocative banter.Excellent performances by Robert Mitchum and Jane Greer...this movie is definitely worth taking time to watch.

Snappy dialogue, great story, dark shadows, and lying women. What's not to like?
