Rescued and preserved after a five-year crusade by the Film Noir Foundation, this 1949 classic is at long last available newly transferred from a 35mm print and painstakingly restored by UCLA Film & Television Archive.

When film noir icons like Lizabeth Scott (Dead Reckoning, Pitfall) and Dan Duryea (Scarlet Street, Criss Cross) collide, sparks are sure to fly!

Jane Palmer (Scott) and her husband Alan (Arthur Kennedy) mysteriously have $60,000 literally dropped in their laps. The circumstances seem mighty suspicious to Alan, who wants to turn the money over to the police. But in a materialistic rapture, Jane won't let it go. She doesn t care where it came from, or what danger might ensue - not if it will bring her the luxury she craves. Enter shady Danny Fuller (Duryea, as cocky and menacing as ever), who claims the money belongs to him. Let the games begin! Roy Huggins snappy script (adapted from his novel) is a complex, breezy and black-hearted homage to James M. Cain and Raymond Chandler. Rapacious housewife Jane Palmer is one of the juiciest female villains in Hollywood history, and Liz Scott's best role ever.

Passionately championed by the Film Noir Foundation and newly transferred from archive elements by UCLA Film & Television Archive, Too Late for Tears is presented on home video for the first time in the on 13th June 2016, courtesy of Arrow Academy.
