Ginger Rogers steals the show as a selfish, snide Broadway superstar in Nunnally Johnson's Black Widow, preening, snooping, gossiping, and bestowing air kisses in equal abundance. Rogers is Carlotta Marin, a grande dame of the thea-tah, married, it would seem happily, to Brian Mullen (Reginald Gardiner). Yet at the heart of Black Widow is something grim, the death of a young, ambitious writer named Nancy (Peggy Ann Garner), who gloms onto a theater producer (Van Hefflin), who's in love with his wife, Iris (Gene Tierney, heartbreakingly lovely). Nancy's death appears to be self-inflicted, and yet as each piece of evidence--a weird suicide note, a threatening letter received in the mail--piles up, things begin to point to murder.

Amen shows us how the world, and particularly, the Catholic church refused to act, even when given evidence, against the annihilation of the Jews by the Nazis. Set in a story about a Vatican priest and an SS Officer who are trying to tell the Pope and the American ambassador, plus some other people, that Jews are being gassed by the Nazis in the multiple thousands per day this film exposes the sad truth that the world did not care enough. Look for the same actor playing the main Nazi as in the film Inglorious Basterds. One can see why Costa Gavras and Quentin Tarantino chose him.
