Clash by Night
A city girl returns to her small hometown and soon finds herself in a tangle of relationships.
Dir Fritz Lang
With Barbara Stanwyck, Paul Douglas, Robert Ryan, Marilyn Monroe
In Lang’s imaginative adaptation of Clifford Odets’ play, Mae Doyle (Stanwyck) returns home to a small fishing town after an extended stay in New York. Defiant, cynical, disenchanted, she soon finds herself unexpectedly caught up in a tangle of relationships. Stanwyck’s mature, complex characterisation is one of several excellent performances, which include Monroe’s memorable portrayal of a trusting young woman.
