I never consider Raw Deal (1948) when thinking about my favorite noirs. And yet, every time I see it, I?m reminded of how good it is. Maybe the reason that Raw Deal doesn?t make it onto any of my Top 10 lists is because, to me, its parts are greater than the whole. Not that it?s not a first-rate mov... Read full article

Quotes from

Joseph Emmett Sullivan: I want to breathe. That's why I want out of this place... so I can take a deep breath again.


Joseph Emmett Sullivan: You're wonderful, baby. I don't know what I'd do without you.
Pat Cameron: Remember to tell me later. With gestures.


Joseph Emmett Sullivan: What do you know about anything? You probably had your bread buttered on both sides since the day you were born. Safe. Safe on first, second, third, and home.
Ann Martin: *That's* what you think! Just because I own a car and a tailored suit and my nails are clean, you think I've never had to fight? I got an education, sure. I suppose that means I was born with a silver spoon, doesn't it? My father was a schooltecher. He died in the war of The Depression. Only he didn't get any medals. Or any bands. Or any bonus. He left three children. You think *you* had to fight? The only way you know how to fight is that stupid way with a gun. Well, there's another way you probably never even heard of. It's the daily fight that everyone has. To get food and an education, to land a job and keep it. And some self-respect. 'Safe'? I never asked for anything safe. All I want is... just a little decency, that's all!
