Review of the film.
Scarlet Street (1945)
I enjoyed the film that I watched. It is about an amateur painter, Chris Cross, and a woman named Kitty. Chris rescuses Kitty from her abusive boyfriend, Johnny, one night and he starts to like her, so he tells her that he is a wealthy artist. Then, Johnny takes Chris's paintings an sells them under Kitty's name making things bad for everyone.

Plot synopsis.
Chris Cross, an amateur painter who has worked as a cashier for 25 years, has a gold watch and not much else. One night, he picks up a woman named Kitty from her abusive partner. Since he likes Kitty, he tells her that he is an wealthy artist. Kitty's boyfriend, Johnny, talks Kitty into conning money out of Chris. Chris ends up setting up his current wife with her ex husband and tries to get into a relationship with her, but he realizes what both Kitty and Johnny have done and he does something that will change everything.
Key theme.
Fritz Lang is known for his dark movies, and Scarlet Street was very dark.
"Each film has some sort of rhythm which only the director can give it. He has to be like the captain to the ship."
"I was called the greatest director in Europe, but I was just a hard worker."
