Despite some rather serious implausibilities, Hangover Square is moodily effective, due to its baroque staging and the strong performances of the two leads. Laird Cregar (imagine Jason Segel as a 1940s limey) plays George with just the right mix of sad sack 40-year-old virgin and bug-eyed psycho. Linda Darnell's Netta is a triumph of two-faced minimalism, her subtly played treachery in sharp contrast to the often overblown histrionics of noir bad girls. Toss in Bernard Herrmann's fittingly dark score, and you've got a good gothy change-up to the usual 1940s film noir fare.
