Two Tickets to Heaven, and We Get Stuck in this Burg

The 1949 Academy Awards ceremony was held on Thursday, March 24th at the Academy Award Theater. A few nights before, Humphry Bogart was at the home of Claire Trevor for dinner. They had starred in “Key Largo” and Claire Trevor was nominated for Best Supporting Actress. In his classic tough guy voice Bogart told Claire Trevor, “Listen kid, if you win, I want you to get up there and say you’re not going to thank anybody, you did it all by yourself.”

Tough on the outside, but vulnerable on the inside, Claire Trevor was the face of the classic film noir woman. Claire’s father was a wealthy tailor on Fifth Avenue in New York City that went out of business when the Great Depression began. Claire once said that he lost his best customers when the Great Depression began because they were all the ones who jumped to their death from their high office windows when their businesses suddenly went bankrupt.

Born Claire Wemlinger, she was on the way to interview with a Broadway agent when she passed a Sinclair Oil sign. She decided to become Claire Sinclair on stage, but her agent opened a New York City telephone book to a random page and blindly stuck his finger onto the list of names, landing on a Trevor.

In this adventure, released a couple of months before her Oscar winning performance, she is the girlfriend of a gangster who is in prison, serving time for a murder that his crime boss committed. She is bold on the outside, but so terribly insecure and vulnerable on the inside. She will stand by her boyfriend gangster Joe, played by Dennis O’Keefe, and help him escape prison.

Unfortunately for Claire, there is another woman that will become part of their run from the law. Younger and sexier Ann, played by Marsha Hunt, will make this prison escape a party of three, and Claire may be the odd-woman out. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
