This week, the mayhem, betrayal, murder, and intrigue of director Fritz Lang. "The Blue Gardenia" is a crisply-paced (88 minutes) minor film noir classic which focuses on how a cynical media covers a sensational murder was the first of Lang's "newspaper noir" movie trio. Stars Anne Baxter, Richard Conte, Ann Sothern and Raymond Burr.
And of course, the title song by Nat King Cole.
