Here are the titles up for grabs:


The Man Who Died Twice (1958): Blu-Ray or DVD available. An innocent woman must survive a murderous reign of terror by hired killers, drug lords and vice kings of the underworld. A nightclub singer (Vera Ralston, I, Jane Doe) becomes mixed up in illegal drug dealings and the mob shortly after witnessing her husband’s supposed death and the murder of a couple of narcotics agents. Republic Pictures veteran Joseph Kane (Dakota) directed this suspenseful film noir gloriously shot in black-and-white and cinemascope by Jack A. Marta (Framed, Duel) with a screenplay by Richard C. Sarafian (Vanishing Point). This exciting crime thriller co-starred Rod Cameron (TV’s State Trooper and City Detective) and Mike Mazurki (Murder, My Sweet). Brand New HD Master from a 4K Scan.

The Scar (1948):  Blu-Ray or DVD available. Originally released as Hollow Triumph, this top-notch film noir suspense thriller gave actor Paul Henreid (Casablanca) a chance to trade in his romantic image for not one, but two sinister performances. After a botched hit on a casino, gambler John Muller (Henreid) has nowhere to run and with a band of killers hired by a rival mobster on his trail, he’s mistaken for the psychiatrist Dr. Bartok, his dead ringer. He decides to kill Bartok and impersonate him, but it’s not long before the doctor’s beautiful secretary (Joan Bennett, The Woman in the Window, Scarlet Street) is on to him and Muller discovers the doctor had a few of his skeletons in the closet. Written by film noir veteran Daniel Fuchs (Criss Cross, Panic in the Streets), beautifully shot by the great John Alton (He Walked by Night) and wonderfully directed by Steve Sekely (The Day of the Triffids). Newly Re-mastered in HD.

Hangover Square (1945): BLUE-RAY only. From the star and director of The Lodger – The great Laird Cregar (I Wake Up Screaming) gives a staggering nightmarish performance as an amnesiac London composer George Harvey Bone, who learns that a murder occurred during one of his blackouts and starts to worry that he himself may be the murderer. Although a Scotland Yard report proves his innocence, Bone’s murderous streak reveals itself when a pub singer with ulterior motives betrays him. Featuring glorious black-and-white photography by Oscar-winner Joseph LaShelle (Laura) and startling direction by Hollywood veteran John Brahm (The Undying Monster). Also starring Linda Darnell (The Mark of Zorro), George Sanders (Witness to Murder), Glenn Langan (Dragonwyck), Faye Marlowe (The Spider) and Alan Napier (Driftwood), Hangover Square is a psychological chiller you won’t soon forget. Brand New 4K Restoration.

Daisy Kenyon (1947): BLUE-RAY only. Joan Crawford (Mildred Pierce), Dana Andrews (Boomerang) and Henry Fonda (The Ox-Bow Incident) deliver dazzling performances in this highly polished and slick love triangle directed by the great Otto Preminger (Laura). Daisy Kenyon (Crawford) is a lovelorn commercial artist caught in a romantic triangle with two men – one she loves but cannot have and one whose love she cannot return. While in an emotionally draining love affair with married attorney Dan O’Mara (Andrews), who refuses to leave his wife, she meets returning army sergeant Peter Lapham (Fonda) – a decent and gentle man who instantly falls in love with her. Although she carries a torch for Dan, she knows Peter will give her the secure life she desires and she agrees to marry him. But when Dan divorces his wife, Daisy is suddenly torn between her obligations… and her passions. Featuring stunning black-and-white cinematography by legendary award-winning cinematographer Leon Shamroy (Leave Her to Heaven, The King and I, Cleopatra).

  1. I’d be most interested in winning HANGOVER SQUARE. Since I saw I WAKE UP SCREAMING, I’ve become a big fan of Laird Cregar. I definitely want to explore more of his work. Cheers!

  2. Toby says:

    I would like to win Daisy Kenyon because I am fan of Joan Crawford and this would be the first blu-ray of hers that I would own.

  3. Emma Stone says:

    >Which of the above films would you like to win and why?
    perhaps Daisy Kenyon, since it’s from the guy who did Laura.

  4. Javier Valverde says:

    I would like to win the movie Daisy Kenyon because it’s a dramatic performance by Joan Crawford that’s full of tenderness and vulnerability that’s rare in a Joan Crawford performance. I would also like to win this movie because of the impressive direction by Otto Preminger and the beautiful cinematography by Leon Shamroy.

  5. Phyl says:

    I haven’t seen any of these films but I would like to see Daisy Kenyon! The Scar looks good too :)

  6. Craig Buehler says:

    I would like to win The Scar – because it’s got Joan Bennett – she’s the best!


  7. Vickie Gleason says:

    I would say Daisy Kenyon as I love the cast with Dana,Joan and Henry but then I also love Paul Henreid and Joan Bennett too so TheScar is equally intriguing. I have not seen either so will need to put on my must see list for sure!

  8. Nancy says:

    I’d like to win The Scar because I haven’t seen it and I love Joan Bennett!

  9. Emily Graziano says:

    I already own Daisy Kenyon (great film btw- and I am NOT a big Joan Crawford fan at all- but its just great)

    But I think The Scar is the one I most want to win- It seems Interesting-

    Ive seen Hangover Square- and I wish I liked it more- maybe I’ll give it another chance?

    Overall- I want to add to my Noir-vember collection!

  10. Bharat says:

    I would like to win The Man who died twice as the premise sounds like a slick thriller.

  11. David Hollingsworth says:

    I would like to win The Scar, because I love Paul Henreid and think that he could do no wrong. I was always drawn to his charisma, charm and effortless grace. He remains one of my favorite classic actors.

  12. Aurora says:

    All the movies included are fantastic, but I’m especially interested in THE SCAR. I’ve been looking for a decent copy of that movie for years.



  13. Ana Roland says:

    The only film I have seen is The Scar/Hollow Triumph (1948) which has the classic noir quote “It’s a bitter little world full of sad surprises, and you don’t let anyone hurt you.” which is terrific!
    The film I would like to win is Hangover Square (1945) because it stars Laird Cregar. He was so brilliantly menacing in I Wake Up Screaming (1941) He had such a short career and died so young at the age of 31 in 1944. I would love to see more of his films.

  15. Patrick M. says:

    DAISY KENYON because it’s a classic I have ne er had the chance to see.

  16. Victoria Rendon says:

    I would like to win Daisy Kenyon because I am a huge Joan Crawford fan! I am trying to see all of her movies and this is one of the few that I’ve never seen.

  17. Aurora says:

    I really want them all! Thank you very much.

    Once Upon a Screen

  18. Brett Doze says:

    I would love to win “Daisy Kenyon” because it is such a star-studded affair and features an outstanding classic director. I think it would be very interesting to see Henry Fonda in a noir role as well.

  19. Stacia says:

    It’s honestly hard to choose but I’d have to go with HANGOVER SQUARE, because Laird Cregar is my main man.

    Patrick M, I hope you win DAISY KENYON, but if you don’t definitely find a copy and check it out. It’s fantastic! Far too often overlooked.

  20. Amarillys Romero says:

    I, shamefully, have not seen any of the films up for grabs. If I could win one of these however, I would choose Daisy Kenyon. Not only have a heard great things via my twitter mutuals who are diehard Crawford fans, but it would be cool to see her with Fonda. The story also seems super cool, as do all the stories.

  21. Rich Leighton says:

    If I didn’t already own “Hangover Square” that would definitely be my first choice – totally nutso film (what a premise!) with a great Bernard Herrman score. But I’d be happy to have “The Scar,” especially given the pedigree of those who worked on it

  22. Sara Stewart says:

    The Scar, it’s the only one I haven’t seen and I love Joan Bennet. I remember her most from the television show, Dark Shadows. Paul Henreid is also another favourite, Now, Voyager is one of my very favourite films

  23. bill norris says:

    Daisy Kenyon (1947) Joan Crawford, rocks and I love a highly polished and slick love triangle and anything directed by Otto Preminger is awesome.

  24. Mat brewster says:

    It’s gotta be Daisy Kenyon. I always want more Joan Crawford.

  25. Chris Teel says:

    I would pick The Man Who Died Twice. Mainly because it sounds like it has more action than the others, but also because it has Mike Mazurki, who I’m beginning to appreciate.

  26. David Wangberg says:

    I want to win The Man Who Died Twice because that title alone intrigues me.

  27. Stuart Cook says:

    I would like THE SCAR. Paul Henreid was a great yet underrated actor, and Joan Bennett was just great in her film noir roles. I have never seen this (lots of dupey looking copies out there) and look forward to this edition.
    I do not have a Twitter account, so I am posting here to enter but cannot tweet the message

  28. Aurora says:

    Here’s one more try. Congratulations to all winners. I want all of the movies in the set.
