Dark Comedy

“There are dark comedies. There are screwball comedies.
But there aren’t many dark screwball comedies.
And if Nora Ephron’s Lucky Numbers  is any indication,
there’s a good reason for that.”

— Todd Anthony, South Florida Sun-Sentinel 

Perhaps another indication — De Palma's  Body Double .

"Like a rose under the April snow . . . ." — Streisand
