Movie Diary 1/29/2020

There’s Always Tomorrow (Douglas Sirk, 1955). Fred MacMurray has the Fifties life, marriage to Joan Bennett, three kids, house in Pasadena (it’s a Sirk film, so the house is full of interesting angles and traps), and his own business as a toy manufacturer. Except when old flame Barbara Stanwyck shows up, he realizes he’s restless for something else. Sirk was lighting up Technicolor during this time, but the movie belongs in black and white – it’s on a modest scale compared to All That Heaven Allows and Written on the Wind, but does everything just right.
