Critic Reviews for Phantom Lady
Channeling the spirit of the Russians (Eisenstein, Dovshenko, Vertov), the director uses grotesque angles, close-ups, and rhythms to suggest a powerful sense of seduction and torture.
Superior, stylish thriller marred by an obvious and over-the-top "mystery" killer
The Phantom Lady proved to be a boon to the German-born director Robert Siodmak's career.

Audience Reviews for Phantom Lady
Another classic Film Noir marked off the list, this one the story of a poor guy searching for the mystery woman in the distinctive hat who can clear his name by providing an alibi for the time of his wife's murder. Well worth a rental.
The film uses the motif of a mysterious lady who cannot be found and it stars a cast of only a couple recognizable names, however Robert Siodmak does a decent job at making this noir interesting and it is worth a watch.
OK pre-noir B-movie with striking Ella Raines determined to save her boss from death row by finding his only alibi to his wife's murder, a woman in a peculiar hat who nobody seems to remember. Boosted by some nifty lighting and frame composition, but a contrived plot applies a Medieval knowledge of mental illness as the psychological slant and the crafty Raines does some unbelievably stupid things just to create tension at the end. Ultimately it's nothing you haven't seen before, except perhaps the crazed drum solo at the tiny jazz club no larger than my closet which seems to take its cues from Reefer Madness!
