    Noir Alley

    Well went and retrieved my old first review of This Gun For Hire and here was my initial impression: This Gun For Hire (1942) Directed by Frank Tuttle, with Veronica Lake, Robert Preston, Laird Cregar, and Alan Ladd. This one was hit & miss, the two opening sequences with hit man Alan Ladd (in his debut) are excellent the boarding house intro & his first hit (you won't recognize him at first), and over the top heavy Laird Cregar as sleazy chemical plant owner by day Neptune Night Club owner by night is very entertaining. Robert Preston seems to be phoning it in and the patriotic anti **** War theme comes off very dated & heavy handed nowadays. 6.5/10 TCM and Eddie Muller's Film Noir Foundation provided a beautiful restored print for Noir Alley of This Gun For Hire last evening a lot of picture details that the old avi file I had of the film lacked were interesting to see. I will up my rating to 7/10. Note Eddie in his intro tells us that Ladd was one of the very first anti-heroes to come out of Hollywood. PS. Anybody perchance recognize that sequence with the long pedestrian walkway over the rail yards where Ladd is running from the cops, was used again in a similar sequence in Neo Noir To Live And Die in L.A. (1985). Anybody from Los Angeles know whether or not it's still there?

    Trump's Biggest Whoppers

    David Frum @davidfrum Trump last night defended Jill Stein and Tulsi Gabbard against charges of Russian influence. He wasn't supposed to do that, he was supposed to pretend they were not all on the same team. 7:18 AM · Oct 20, 2019·TweetDeck

    Trump's Biggest Whoppers

    Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump So now Crooked Hillary is at it again! She is calling Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard “a Russian favorite,” and Jill Stein “a Russian asset.” As you may have heard, I was called a big Russia lover also (actually, I do like Russian people. I like all people!). Hillary’s gone Crazy! 10:41 PM · Oct 19, 2019·Twitter for iPhone

    Bill Macy has passed

    Watched The Late Show (1977) last night in which Bill Macy had one of his best film roles as the not-so-trustworthy friend who brings loopy Lily Tomlin to private eye Art Carney to find her cat. Instead they get involved in a cat-and-mouse game of adultery and murder. Wonderful film, an homage to all those film noir private eyes and their dames.

    Faust (1926)

    Apparently classic film fans just can’t see the forest for the trees. A few Chantal Akerman films, out of 300 some films a month, is really a huge problem? If you can avoid them on Imports how do you struggle to do so on The Essentials? So TCM is making Silent Sunday “woke” by...showing exactly the same films that they always do? That’s exactly what the schedules for the next three months show. I fail to see how showing those mediocre William Haines films again qualifies as forcing wokeness on anyone. Someone there really likes Oscar Micheaux (an interesting figure but his films aren’t that great) enough to keep showing Symbol of the Unconquered perhaps more than it needs to be but otherwise it’s the same stuff TCM has always shown. If it’s the intros, wow, it’s pretty easy to skip over them (you have a remote control for a reason, you’re not watching TCM on an old dial TV.) If it’s not “fun” anymore, sorry, that’s you making a problem for yourself.

    Trump vs Turkey & Kurdish allies....

    I don't believe that you just send the UN into hot war zones. Usually there is some sort of brokered truce before they go in. And besides this, Turkey wants the Kurds out of their own territory. Turkey would have to withdraw which the Donald has not even proposed. He has declared victory already. Russia would be likely to veto this move anyway. Probably the U.S. too.
