    I'd like to see if a decent print adds to the appreciation of the cinematography, you just can't tell with that one all the blacks are overly crushed.

    You know I believe that "Danny Boy" was written after the turn of the century, would be anachronistic during the building of the Union Pacific.

    Did you see a good print of this? The online offering is horrible. It's entertaining enough, and quite noirish, liked the stylistic sequence in the warehouse. agree 7/10

    You can't really, you could probably come up with 3-6 most every year.

    I give it a 7/10 for the highly interesting ending at the spooky looking half sunken resort on the Salton Sea.

    MUSIC THAT INFLUENCED "ME" GROWING-UP

    The beauty of the internet. Did a search and found it. My first radio below was a GE 678 they started making them in 1956 mine was aqua colored like the one below but it also had a leather case with an over the shoulder strap. I can remember taking it to Astoria Park and sitting on the grass with my folks and watching the heavy traffic going through the treacherous Hell Gate on the East River, ships, tugs pulling various barges or lashed to car floats fought the currents pretty dramatically at times with some close calls. I can remember also taking it with me to the South shore beaches, Jones Beach and Robert Moses or once in a while to Sunken Meadow on the North shore. The tunes I recall that I first heard over this little baby.... "At a time when bikini bathing suits were still seen as too risqué to be mainstream, the song prompted a sudden take off in bikini sales and is credited as being one of the earliest contributors to the acceptance of the bikini in society. The early 1960s saw a slew of surf movies and other film and television productions that rapidly built on the song's momentum." (Wikipedia)
