Second printing. Presentation copy inscribed by Joan Bennett to film director Fritz Lang. Inscribed: ÒTo Dearest Fritz, With love and devotion always, from your ÔWoman In the Window.ÕÓ Fritz Lang and Joan Bennett collaborated on five film noir pictures including the great masterworks The Woman In the Window, Scarlet Street, Manhunt. Bennett has become known as the Queen of the Film Noir Femme Fatales. Of all LangÕs heroines, Bennett had a remarkable ability to get on with the mercurial Lang and at one point they created their own production company. This is BennettÕs memoirs and has an interesting section dealing with Lang and their film noir pictures. Ò.Fritz was a real Jekyll and Hyde character, calm and purposeful one moment, and off on a tirade the next. At script conferences he was rebellious, on the set he was outrageous and demanding. I remember we couldnÕt use doubles for Michael Redgrave and me for a sequence in a burning house. We fled, terrified, through scorching films, time and again, and it wasnÕt a fire for toasting marshmallows. Fritz and I had some thrilling arguments during the filming. When he was in a successful period, he was impossible and Darryl Zanuck told me, ÒLet him have one good resounding flop and heÕll be adorable.Õ He got it in Secret Behind the Door. It flopped and Fritz was adorable at once.To me Fritz Lang remains one of the great directors in the history of the business, and working with him was a fascination exercise in the art of making motion pictures. On occasion, whenever he makes a trip to New York from his home in California, we still get together for a delightful evening of do-you-remember-when, and the trouble-with-you-was.Ó.
