Eric Stanton (Dana Andrews), a press agent down on his luck, drifts into a small Californian coastal town. He meets June (Alice Faye), a wealthy but reclusive woman, and has his eye on Stella (Linda Darnell), a sultry waitress. In love with Stella but broke, Eric marries June for her money, planning a rapid divorce. However when Stella is murdered, the story takes an unexpected turn.
This somewhat neglected film noir is a dark study in romantic pathology. With Joseph LaShelle's photography and Preminger's trademark fluid camera work and long takes, Fallen Angel demonstrates all of the director's intelligence, control and stylishness.
