Product description

John Payne (99 River Street), Joan Caulfield (The Unsuspected), Dan Duryea (Scarlet Street) and Shelley Winters (Cry of the City) play the old confidence game in the riveting crime drama Larceny. Smooth-talking grifter Rick Maxon (Payne) tries to swindle wealthy war widow Deborah (Caulfield) into giving up her savings for a nonexistent memorial. When Rick falls in love with Deborah he has pangs of remorse, but he must contend with his gang boss, Silky (Duryea), and the tough-as-nails moll, Tory (Winters), who is enamored with Rick but is considered Silky’s girl. Director George Sherman (The Sleeping City, Against All Flags, Big Jake) keeps the twists and turns coming in this hard-boiled film noir. Beautifully shot by Irving Glassberg (The Tarnished Angels, The Price of Fear) and co-starring Dan O’Herlihy (RoboCop) and Gene Evans (Fixed Bayonets!).

Special Features:
-NEW Audio Commentary by Film Historian Eddy Von Mueller
-Trailers

5.0 out of 5 stars BLU RAY REVIEW
Reviewed in the United States on 17 July 2021
In ‘Larceny’ (Universal-International 1948), John Payne is a confidence man who preys on rich widow Joan Caulfield.
Matters are complicated when he falls in love with his intended victim.
Complicated even more when fellow gang member Shelly Winters, who is in love with John Payne, finds out about it.
Complicated still more when fellow gang member Dan Duryea, who is in love with Shelley Winters, finds out.
‘Larceny’ drags a bit during the first hour, but finally blossoms into full-fledged film noir during the last 20 minutes when Shelley Winters and Dan Duryea come gunning for each other and John Payne.

‘Larceny’ is supposedly based on a novel, ‘The Velvet Fleece’ by John Fleming,
BUT the plot is virtually identical to Frederick Lonsdale’s 1925 play ‘The Last of Mrs. Cheyney’.
The major difference is that the sexes were reversed: Mrs. Cheyney was a confidence woman who preyed on rich men.
‘The ‘Last of Mrs. Cheyney’ was filmed twice:

MGM 1929: Norma Shearer is a confidence woman who preys on elderly Lord Elton, but falls in love with his friend Basil Rathbone.
Complicated when fellow gang members find out.
MGM 1937: Joan Crawford is a confidence woman who preys on wealthy Robert Montgomery, but falls in love with her intended victim.
Complicated when fellow gang member William Powell, who is in love with Joan Crawford, finds out.

Both versions of ‘The Last of Mrs. Cheyney’ were “comedy-dramas” (no shooting).
The 1929 version was a pre-code film, naughtier than the 1937 remake.
Plus what woman could resist the masculine allure of Basil Rathbone?
Both versions of ‘The Last of Mrs. Cheyney’ turn up on Turner Classic Movies a lot.
Both are available on DVD and as Amazon Prime downloads.

Kino-Lorber supplies English subtitles for ‘Larceny’ + a selection of movie trailers + an audio commentary by Eddie von Muller (not the same as Eddie Muller).
