    Freelance editor and blogger. I've been reading mystery and detective stories since I was a child. I read every Nancy Drew mystery I could get my hands on when I was young. Since taking Richard Edwards's "Summer of Darkness" course in the summer of 2015 and watching noir faithfully ever since, I think I can say that I am no longer new to film noir and neo-noir.

    Gosh, I would put Marilyn Monroe in this category. She died at age 36, which seems so young to me.

    The city name isn't the title but . . . Cornered (1945) Gilda (1946) Cornered starts in Europe and moves to Buenos Aires, where many Nazis escaped after World War II. Gilda takes place almost entirely in Buenos Aires.

    Well, now that you ask, I guess Slightly Scarlet could go with either category ("Released from prison" and "Something doesn't go according to plan"). However, I meant it for "Released from prison." Dorothy Lyons is released from prison at the start of the film.

    The Letter (1940) The Postman Always Rings Twice (1946) (just for the title) Cause for Alarm! (1951) (might not be mentioned in the title but the plot is all about the mail carrier)

    Patton (1970), starring George C. Scott
  11. I recently saw Mo' Better Blues again. It's a 1990 Spike Lee film starring both Lee and Washington. I thought Denzel did a great job playing a jazz trumpeter (Bleek Gilliam). There's a great sequence in the middle of the film in which Lee portrays Bleek's two-timing ways with very effective cutting and use of dialogue.

    Secret Agent was the one I was trying to remember yesterday (but I'm happy to say that I have seen so many movies from that period that they got a little jumbled up in my mind). And I love that clip about Buster Keaton. Didn't he end up hanging on to various modes of transportation during his film career?!?

    Meet Me in St. Louis, of course! ("Clang, clang goes the trolley . . . .") (Wasn't it a cable car? Now I'm not so sure.)?

    Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter . . . and Spring (2003), fantastic film from Korea that I'm pretty sure I need to see again. (That's really five seasons, I guess!)?
