The Tarnished Angels (PG), Douglas Sirk, USA, 1957, 91min

Returning with his Written on the Wind co-stars Robert Stack and Dorothy Malone, Hudson is rendered in a brooding black-and-white, a reporter entering a world of circus aviators, their dangerous profession the centerpoint of a cruel human tragedy. With their final collaboration Sirk adapts William Faulkner’s 1935 Pylon, a project he’d been working on since the book’s release.

All That Heaven Allows (G), Douglas Sirk, USA, 1955, 89mins

Hudson and Sirk fall completely in-tune with the repressive atmosphere of a 1950s US as his golden child portrays the gardner of a high-society widow Jane Wyman, their love affair outlawed and ripe with torment. Unable to so easily cross class boundaries, the chill of a love against all odds pervades this wintery classic.
