Caftan Woman Posted by on Nov 30, 2020

Perhaps if I told you that Robert Greig played the butler to a wealthy screwball family in The Cheaters that would be enough for you to agree with my December choice. However, if I then told you that halfway through the movie Greig disappears (he does leave a note), you might decide to forego the pl read more

YouTube Noir — Noirvember Day 29: Try and Get Me! (1950)

Shadows and Satin Posted by shadowsandsatin on Nov 29, 2020

Today, I’m recommending a movie that I’ve only seen once and, frankly, I don’t know if I’ll ever see it again. It’s not because it’s not a first-rate noir. It is. It’s just that it’s often hard to take – especially toward the end. But please don’t let that stop you from checking read more

November Quick Picks and Pans

Cinematic Catharsis Posted by Barry P. on Nov 29, 2020

 Scarlet Street (1945) Fritz Lang’s cynical noir drama is as bleak as they come, taking us to the darkest corners of human nature. Edward G.

You'd think she was porcelain

Carole & Co. Posted by carole_and_co on Nov 29, 2020

At her best, Carole Lombard could look incredibly ethereal. This image makes that evident, as the star looks to be fragile, constructed of porcelain or some other delicate item. But no, this is the flesh-and-blood Carole, derived from a mid-1930s photo and a postcard measuring 3 1/2" x 5 1/2". Accor read more

YouTube Noir — Noirvember Day 28: City That Never Sleeps (1953)

Shadows and Satin Posted by shadowsandsatin on Nov 28, 2020

You don’t hear much about City That Never Sleeps (1953), and that’s a real shame. It’s got a lot of good stuff, from great use of shadows to voiceover narration (okay, it’s the city talking, but whatever). It’s also chock full of dark, cynical, and duplicitous characters, including a magician read more
