Andrews on Preminger

Check out the archival interview of star Dana Andrews--the quiet man of film noir--over at In it, he discusses working with his frequent director, Otto Preminger. Their films together, one of the great actor/director collaborations in noir history produced LAURA, FALLEN ANGEL, WHERE THE SIDEWALK ENDS, and DAISY KENYON. Easily available on DVD, these movies are not to be missed.

The interview offers a rare look at this often undervalued star. Fans of Andrews' hardboiled screen persona will be surprised how talky and urban he was. Listen to the interview here.

Thanks very much for running this. Andrews was an excellent actor, too seldom noticed.

Glad you liked the link, Ed. Andrews is really undervalued.
