Movie-A-Day #135: The Girl in Black Stockings (1957).
Today is Nylon Stockings Day, marking the anniversary of the sale of the first pair in 1940. A good pair of black nylon stockings are essential to any woman’s wardrobe, whether she wants to be sexy, dangerous, or just plain classic. There’s something very noir about them, which makes a film like “The Girl in Black Stockings” such a given. It’s a steamy, despairing noir film set in, of all places, a Utah motel and featuring Anne Bancroft, Mamie Van Doren and Marie Windsor. So, ladies… make sure you wear your own black stockings today. Just make sure you don’t wind up murdered!
