C&L's Sat Nite Chiller Theater: The File On Thelma Jordon (1950)

Barbara Stanwyck is a femme fatale: "I'm no good for any man for any longer than a kiss!"

One of the taglines for "The File on Thelma Jordon" is. "Most men have known at least one."

That "one," of course, is Barbara Stanwyck, badass queen of film noir.

Via IMDB:

Assistant District Attorney Cleve Marshall, depressed about marital troubles, is drowning his sorrows in a bottle of whiskey when the mysterious and alluring Thelma Jordon walks in to report an attempted burglary. The two become romantically involved and not long afterwards there is a burglary and murder at Thelma's aunt's house. Cleve is drawn further and further into defending and covering up for Thelma. It soon becomes clear that this road will only lead to disaster.

Enjoy! And it's an open thread...
