L. C. ANDERSON HIGH SCHOOL TRIBUTE 1: 1965 YELLOWJACKETS YEARBOOK: INTRO & "THE BLUE GARDENIA"

MY SELECTION NO. 1 FOR BEST MOVIES OF THE FIFTIES AND SIXTIES IS
"THE BLUE GARDENIA"
STARRING "ANNE BAXTER", "RICHARD CONTE",
"ANN SOTHERN", AND "RAYMOND BURR"!!




The Blue Gardenia is a 1953 film noir crime film directed by Fritz Lang and based on a story by Vera Caspary.[1] It stars Anne Baxter, Richard Conte and Ann Sothern. The first installment of Lang's "newspaper noir" movie trio — with While the City Sleeps and Beyond a Reasonable Doubt (both 1956) — The Blue Gardenia offers a somewhat negative look at newspaper coverage of a sensational murder case. In Los Angeles, California, Norah Larkin (Anne Baxter) is a single woman who works as a switchboard operator along with her roommates, Crystal Carpenter (Ann Sothern) and Sally Ellis (Jeff Donnell). On her birthday, she decides to celebrate by dining alone at home, with the picture of her fiancé, a soldier serving in the Korean War. At the candlelight dinner table, she opens the latest letter from him and learns to her shock that he instead plans to marry a nurse he met in Tokyo. Devastated, Norah accepts a date over the telephone with womanizing calendar girl artist Harry Prebble (Raymond Burr).
