    Why couldn't the two kids just go back the way they came? Stupid idiots.
  2. Sydney Pollack gets the heebie-jeebies thinking about that chariot race.

    TAP 1932 black

    According to TCM's schedule page, it looks like it should be Smash Your Baggage.
  4. Over on another board, somebody posted a link to the following news story: Dayton man reports finding unknown female dead in spare bedroom The conversation continued with somebody saying, "^ Noir is the first thing that came to my mind. I know I’ve seen “that” movie but can’t think of a title. Ted should be along any minute to give us an example." Being the Ted in question, I was trying to think of what movie it might be, or even if there is such a noir. I have a feeling I should know it but can't think of the movie the other poster had in mind. The best I could come up with was Ann Savage in Detour (sorry to give a plot point away!) but that wasn't it. Anybody else have any ideas?
  5. And what's with one poster resurrecting dozens of 16-year-old posts?

    IIRC, the movie was named Dear Brigitte because Bardot explicitly asked that she not get a credit for her cameo. This was the only way they could get her name on screen.

    They also had the Pacer:

    Charming or Disgrace?

    I thought this was going to be a debate about the relative merits of Carol Charming vs. Disgrace Kelly.

    To be fair, the Communists were dupes and deserved to be treated with as much derision as Holocaust deniers.

    I think they should keep it in precisely because there are tiresome moral scolds wanting it cut out.
  13. We're sorry we're not letting you control the narrative.
  14. Don't you want to strangle Margaret O'Brien's character to death every time you watch Meet Me in St. Louis?
  15. Glenda has a jaw-dropping line when she and her fellow gold-digger get a "Dear John" letter from their sugar daddy Guy Kibbee.

    If he tries to kill anyone, it's martial arts noir.

    So TCM should pair it with Can Heironymus Merkin Ever Forget Mercy Humppe and Find True Happiness?
  18. The Swarm needs killing, but it's not noirish. Ditto The Andromeda Strain.
  19. I don't think Spats wanting to kill Daphne and Josephine has noir elements at all. And I don't think of the killings in most of the 30s gangster movies as noir elements either.
  20. I wouldn't quite agree: I don't think, for example, that Becket is a noir, and Some Like It Hot certainly isn't.
  21. And for Christmas noir, there's also Cover Up.
  22. My first thought would have been The Window.
  23. I'm one of those people who drinks his coffee black, no sugar. And I make a cup in my Mr. Coffee at home to bring into work. I'm a cheapskate. (Started in high school and have been drinking two or three cups a day ever since.)
