L. C. ANDERSON HIGH SCHOOL TRIBUTE 22: 1956 YELLOWJACKETS YEARBOOK: ATHLETICS & "BLACK WIDOW"


MY SELECTION NO. 22 FOR "BEST MOVIES OF THE FORTIES AND FIFTIES" IS
"BLACK WIDOW"
STARRING "GINGER ROGERS", "VAN HEFLIN",
"GENE TIERNEY", AND "GEORGE RAFT"!!






Black Widow is a 1954 DeLuxe Color mystery film in CinemaScope, with elements of film noir, written, produced and directed by Nunnally Johnson and starring Ginger Rogers, Van Heflin, Gene Tierney, and George Raft. Plot- Peter Denver (Van Heflin) is a renowned Broadway producer attending a party—hosted by the viciously haughty and celebrated actress Carlotta "Lottie" Marin (Ginger Rogers) and her quiet husband Brian Mullen (Reginald Gardiner)—when he meets Nancy "Nanny" Ordway (Peggy Ann Garner). Ordway is a seemingly naïve, 20-year-old, aspiring writer, who hopes to make it big in New York. She convinces a reluctant Denver to let her use his apartment to work during the day, while his wife, Iris (Gene Tierney), also a famous actress, is away, but with her permission. After the Denvers return from the airport and find Nancy hanging dead in their bathroom, a variety of people Ordway has recently met in New York begin to reveal deeper and darker connections with her.
