THE GIRL IN THE RED VELVET SWING

(1955, Richard Fleischer) Joan Collins’ showgirl Evelyn Nesbit is the one in that swing, elaborate foreplay for Ray Milland’s legendary architect Stanford White — but if her eventual husband, Farley Granger’s dissipated playboy Harry Thaw knew all that, why’d he pull out a gun on Madison Square Garden’s rooftop? 49 years later, the real Nesbit served as technical adviser. Approx. 109 min. 35mm.
