Violent Saturday (1955)

4 Star Films Posted by 4 Star Film Fan on Nov 28, 2022

“It’s so stupid and pointless to be alive in the morning and dead in the afternoon.” There’s a lovely contradiction in crafting a De Luxe noir in Cinemascope. It’s visually luscious and still shot on the kind of cheapo budget Richard Fleischer was able to make sing ear read more

Noirvember Day 28: Happy Birthday, Gloria!

Shadows and Satin Posted by shadowsandsatin on Nov 28, 2022

There was nobody in Hollywood like Gloria Grahame. She could be sweetly naïve, sexy and shrewd, broadly humorous, or just plain deadly. And she was equally adept at each. While I’ve enjoyed her performances in films like It’s a Wonderful Life (1946) and Oklahoma! (1955), it’s Grahame’s noirs, read more

Noirvember Day 26: Barbara Stanwyck – In Her Own Words

Shadows and Satin Posted by shadowsandsatin on Nov 26, 2022

It’s not Barbara Stanwyck’s birthday today. And it’s not the anniversary of her passing. None of her noirs were released on today’s date. Nonetheless, I’m shining the spotlight on this iconic noir veteran today – not on the many noirs in which she appeared (including my favorite, Double read more

PAROLE GIRL

The Hitless Wonder Movie Blog Posted by Dan Day, Jr. on Nov 25, 2022

 Mae Clarke is best known for two things: her role as Elizabeth in the 1931 FRANKENSTEIN and having a grapefruit shoved in her face by James Cagney in THE PUBLIC ENEMY. She deserves to be known for more than that, though. Clarke was an extremely versatile actress who always managed to make an i read more

Shadows and Satin Posted by shadowsandsatin on Nov 25, 2022

One of my favorite Audrey Totter performances is in The Set-Up, where she plays the uber-supportive wife of an aging boxer. Another of my favorite Totter roles is in Tension, where she plays a perfectly awful wife who doesn’t give a second thought to stepping out on her milquetoast husband. Both fil read more

Noirvember Day 24: Happy Thanksgiving, the Marilyn Way

Shadows and Satin Posted by shadowsandsatin on Nov 24, 2022

When you think of Marilyn Monroe movies, you may envision Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, or The Seven-Year Itch, or Some Like It Hot, but of course I think of her film noir appearances. During her 15-year career, she was seen in four noirs: The Asphalt Jungle (1950), Clash By Night (1952), Don’t Bo read more

Yield to The Night (1957)

4 Star Films Posted by 4 Star Film Fan on Nov 22, 2022

“For the night is already at hand and it is well to yield to the night.” There’s immediate traction to Yield to The Night’s opening visuals. We look on at pigeons scuttling about, outdoor waterfalls, and Diana Dors’s heels clicking across an open plaza. Of course, we d read more
