Well, I’ve never been pressured to shoot in color. Mel Brooks was really hot for the idea of me doing Elephant Man in black and white. Nobody bothered me on Eraserhead, either. I wish I had made Dune in black and white. Blue Velvet was the first film that really felt as if it should be in color. It had the right mood. Black and white would have killed the neighborhood feeling - the “small-town story” feel. Color had the warmth that the film needed.”David Lynch

Jane Greer in Out of the Past (1947, dir. Jacques Tourneur)
“Zzjjane, do you know what ahm-pahs-eeve mean?” [director Jacques Tourneur] asked the actress.
“Impassive? Yes.”
“No ‘big eyes’. No expressive. In the beginning you act like a nice girl. But then, after you kill the man you meet in the little house, you become a bad girl. Yes? First half, good girl. Second half, bad.” 
“I get you,” she said. That was his direction, Greer recalled. “But I did throw in a few big eyes anyway. I couldn’t help myself.”
 Tourneur also discussed with her his plan for the character’s wardrobe, something typical of his films’ subtle, insidious visual design. “At first you wear light colors. After you kill the man, darker colors. In the end, black.”
-excerpted from Lee Server’s Baby I Don’t Care

Kathie Moffett (Jane Greer) knows how to use a gun in Out Of The Past (1947)

Jane Greer is simply amazing in Out of the Past.

The Lady from Shanghai, 1947 (dir. Orson Welles)

Another iconic Rita Hayworth performance.  Wonderful poster, too.

Great poster, but she never says this in the movie…
