Mind games, both for its characters and the audience, fuel the mesmerizing suspense of Whirlpool (1949), a polished noir thriller reuniting director Otto Preminger with his Laura star Gene Tierney, giving one of her best performances as a mentally troubled socialite caught shoplifting – and ensnared in the dark scheme of a manipulative astrologer/hypnotist (José Ferrer) to frame her for murder. Richard Conte and Charles Bickford co-star as Tierney’s psychiatrist husband and the investigating police detective. Written for the screen by Ben Hecht (Spellbound, Where the Sidewalk Ends) and Andrew Solt (In a Lonely Place), and hauntingly scored by another Laura veteran, the great David Raksin.
