    Nuclear Noir

    If you think about it though, Kiss Me Deadly could probably also be called a SiFi Noir. Is it even possible to carry around fissionable material like that, that would go into a meltdown doing a "china syndrome" on a Malibu beach? Any nuclear physicists on the board?

    Actress Sondra Locke (1944-2018)

    It's the Hollywood Center Motel at the corner of Sunset and North Las Palmas.

    Best Party Scene

    I think that was actually one of Andy Warhol's factory parties, it looked quite authentic.

    Best Party Scene

    How about the party in Peter Sellers' The Party (1968)
  8. My first real trip to Los Angeles these were my Film Noir priorities. The touchstones of Film Noir, L.A. City Hall, Union Station (beautiful BTW), the Bradbury Building (where I found a piece of it laying on the sidewalk looks like a round topped finial), Angels Flight which had just started running again but unfortunately wast open to public yet (2017), South Hill Street, Main Street, South Broadway and its crumbling theaters, and the Los Angeles River. Paid my respects to the last of Bunker Hill by walking into the Third Street Tunnel. I look at the new skyscrapers where Bunker Hill used to be as Bunker Hill's tombstones. Drove around Chinatown, drove down "The Nickel" (it's pretty bad, BTW), parked up on Hollywood Blvd at the Hollywood Freeway and walked West to North La Brea and back, saw Musso and Franks, Grauman's Chinese Theater (or whatever it's called now), The Egyptian Theater, The Frolic Room, and the rest. Drove by Pinks, drove down Sunset Blvd. to the Pacific Coast Highway. Drove up the PCH to Malibu. At sunset drove Mulholland Drive from 405 back to the Hollywood freeway. Drove down to Santa Monica but couldn't find a place to park (wrong time of day but would have visited the pier and would have also driven down to see Venice (next time). As far as I'm concerned that's the real deal. My wife wanted to do the Universal Studio Tour, I hated it BTW, worst part of the trip, more like an expensive amusement park, waste of time and money. I think the Warner Brothers Tour (at least the way it's described) may be more worthwhile.

    What Were They Thinking?

    It just came to me that Judy Garland was another, I seem to remember for years seeing her on TV she sported that same cropped look. she looks great in these two examples. compared to say I know she is a lot older in the above photo but I remember seeing her in the early 1960s when she was in her late 30s on TV with pretty much the same unchanging do.

    Begone era of the Scrapbook

    The first time I flew to Europe, it was on a TWA Lockheed Constellation it had curtains on the windows, four props and three tails. We flew from Idlewild airport New York to Gander Newfoundland where we had to top off the tanks, then flew from Gander to Shannon, Ireland, where we gassed up again, then from there to Orly, Paris. 😎

    Heaven's Gate (the movie,not the cult)

    It just baffles how Cimino could get that type of greenlight based on what Thunderbolt and Lightfoot and The Deer Hunter while a director like Sergio Leone had trouble getting funding.

    Impulse was a great Neo Noir, R.I.P.
