Go Inside One of Hollywood’s Wildest Scandals
In a coproduction with Cadence13, Love Is a Crime hosts Karina Longworth and Vanessa Hope explore the dark, bygone story of film producer Walter Wanger and actor Joan Bennett.
Joan Bennett, leading lady of Scarlet Street and The Woman in the Window, was a famous femme fatale in 1940s film noir. The most salacious story she ever starred in, however, happened off-screen. Enter her film-producer husband, Walter Wanger, whose jealousy and rage over Bennett’s affair with an agent would lead to one of Old Hollywood’s wildest scandals.
