Shell-Shock and Awe

He's frightened and starting to sweat
His nightmare is getting him wet
A dame in the deep
is haunting his sleep
They're coming for him with a net

Joan Bennett with Robert Ryan, a navy vet with a bad case of shell-shock in Woman on the Beach (Jean Renoir, 1948). Watch Ryan's surrealistic, Freudian-drenched nightmare on youtube, here.
