Film Forum is running a Brit Noir festival this month. I left work too late for the first movie on the bill so I settled for the second title: Footsteps in the Fog, a Victorian murder melodrama circa 1955. Roll credits. Ah, Stewart Granger, awesome; Jean Simmons, cool; Technicolor, great; omfg WILLIAM HARTNELL! First Doctor! First Doctor in Technicolor EEEEEEEEEEEE!
