Aro Recommended Tarnished Angels, The


USA 1958, 91 minutes, B/W
Dir. Douglas Sirk
Genres: Classics, Drama

Topics: Media, Aviation.


Aroview: WRITTEN ON THE WIND's tawdry trio (Stack, Malone, Hudson) reunite in this soaring melodrama about an exiled, enigmatic WWI pilot whose debonair lifestyle becomes the subject of a newspaperman's reportage.

While lower key than its predecessor (it was shot in b/w for budgetary reasons), this remains part of the director's key works, culminating with an impassioned (and still relevant) diatribe from big Rock about media sensationalism and complacency. Based on William Faulkner's novel 'Pylon'.
