I adore The Woman in the Window, even the ending (which has been heavily criticized).

I think that maybe when I tried to watch Scarlet Street a couple of times, I found myself comparing it to The Woman in the Window. Not sure.

Personally, I think that James Cagney played a better gangster than Bogart and Robinson did.

Style of talking? Yup, there were certain styles of speech which were done by all gangster characters during that time, and other styles of speech which cop characters did in the forties, etc. That was fashionable back then.

By the way, I really enjoyed House of Strangers, too.

The Woman in the Window is comparably visually drabber than Scarlet Street it has that obviously fake studio "forest" set at one point, and it has the BS ending.

I like the visuals in The Woman in the Window (shadows, isolated street, etc).

I understand the complaints about the ending, but the story is told before that ending happens, so I'm fine with it.
