Critic Reviews for Hangover Square
Hangover Square is a short (77 minutes) but effective little noir film, not on the same level as The Lodger but with a few tense, memorable setpieces, a solid score.
Audience Reviews for Hangover Square
Laird Cregar's life may have been troubled and tragic but there's no denying his talent. Hangover Square works because Laird can seamlessly shift from charismatic leading man to ruthless killer and back again without the audience ever questioning the psychology or the motive. Good stuff.
a great little known gothic thriller with a pretty neat plot device: discordant sounds send a composer into a homicidal trance! with laird cregar, george sanders and linda darnell as the femme fatale. shot in gorgeous noir style with a wonderful score by bernard hermann
Atmospheric noir before noir came into being. Linda Darnell is breathtakingly beautiful even if her character is a grasping tramp.
