How would you like a little film noir in your adultery? Yes…there will be SPOILERS:
“NORA PRENTISS” is really a showcase for Ann Sheridan. Director Vincent Sherman gloriously holds the camera on her many times, to which I, as a Sheridan fan say “Yay!” She’s excellent. As Nora Prentiss, she hadn’t sign up for this. She’s not a bad guy; no vixen or femme fatale or Vamp. She wants to be married, have kids, live out in the open. It gets increasingly dark for her too. She soon sees he’s not any closer to divorce and this is not working out for her in an open way.
