The Dark Galleries

A Museum Guide to Painted Portraits in Film Noir Gothic Melodramas and Ghost Stories of the 1940s and 1950s

Introduction and text by Steven Jacobs, Lisa Colpaert.

The Flecker Museum in <I>Cat People</I> (Jacques Tourneur, RKO, 1942) is reproduced from <I>The Dark Galleries</I>.Imagine a museum in which the portrait of Carlotta Valdes, an important prop in Alfred Hitchcock’s Vertigo, hangs on a wall next to the painted portrait of the title character of Otto Preminger’s Laura, opposite the portraits of the desired or murdered women in Fritz Lang’s Scarlet Street, George Cukor’s Gaslight and Nicholas Ray’s Born to Be Bad. In an adjacent gallery, the visitor of this imaginary museum can contemplate the portraits of patriarchs that feature in films such as House of Strangers, Suspicion, Gilda and Strangers on a Train. This is precisely the concept of this book. The Dark Galleries looks at American (and some British) films of the 1940s and 1950s, in which a painted portrait plays an important part in the plot. Presented as a guide to an imaginary museum, this book includes more than 80 entries on the artistic and cinematic aspects of these portraits.

The Flecker Museum in Cat People (Jacques Tourneur, RKO, 1942) is reproduced from The Dark Galleries.

PRAISE AND REVIEWS

Hyperallergic

Allison Meier

Most of the artwork from these films is now lost, as it was treated as a disposable prop... But preserved in the films, these portraits retain their vitality.
