GREAT OLD MOVIES -- EXTRA
BACK TO "BACK STREET"
"Back Street" author Fannie Hurst
Every once in a while Great Old Movies will put out special "extra" editions where a few movies are lumped together according to theme. In this first extra edition we're looking at the classic 1930 novel of adultery, "Back Street," by Fannie Hurst, and the three film versions that were adapted from it:
BACK STREET (1932) with Irene Dunne and John Boles.
BACK STREET (1941) with Margaret Sullavan and Charles Boyer.
BACK STREET (1961) with Susan Hayward and John Gavin.
