Critic Reviews for The Blue Gardenia
The weakness in this case clearly lies in a script by Charles Hoffman, which is hackneyed and tedious from beginning to end.
The somewhat wilted plot manages to take on an unaccustomed bloom in Fritz Lang's direction and the acting of an adept cast.
A stock story and handling keep The Blue Gardenia from being anything more than a regulation mystery melodrama.
[A] little-seen thriller from Fritz Lang's rich and strange late period.
This is one of Fritz Lang's weaker efforts in film noir, although his great visual style is evident in every scene.
Audience Reviews for The Blue Gardenia
Another good thriller from Fritz Lang. It's really exciting and dramatic, and the actors are good. I liked this movie.
Have you ever discovered that someone was planning a surprise party for you so you went along with it, acting surprised even though you really weren't? And then you discovered that, instead of the expected fifty guests, only three or four of your friends showed up? And then only one of them brought a gift? And then that gift turned out to be something you already have? If so then you already know what it's like to watch The Blue Gardenia.
Really disappointing noir. The only entertaining thing was Raymond Burr.
