    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.

    Possible Spoiler Alert Can we mention television shows that we've never seen?! I've heard that one of the characters in Mad Men hides his/her past to start over in someone else's life.

    The Dark Corner (1946), starring Lucille Ball and Mark Stevens And probably every other film noir!!! The Dark Corner happens to be one of my faves.

    How about Fourteen Hours (1951)? (Richard Basehart, please, please, please evacuate that ledge.)

    Playing by Heart was pretty good. I enjoyed it. I wonder: Would Mystic Pizza qualify if the leads weren't famous at the time that the film was made?

    From across the pond, Four Weddings and a Funeral (1994).

    How about Breakfast at Tiffany's? Holly Golightly is sprung by O. J. Berman's lawyer after her arrest on drug charges. Her first words out of prison? "Quel night!"

    How about Ida Lupino's The Hitchhiker?! And City of Fear again: Vince picks up a sailor on his drive away from prison. And The Blue Dahlia: Joye Harward picks up Johnny Morrison on a dark and stormy night.

    City of Fear (1958/1959; the film has a 1958 copyright date but was released in 1959). It's a bit part (but "There are no small parts"!): Dr. Perrin, the doctor who evaluates June Marlowe for radiation poisoning, is a woman.

    What about Odd Man Out? If Wikipedia is to be believed (and I usually do believe Wikipedia!), at least part of it was filmed in Ireland. Just thought of another: The Commitments (1991).

    First Man sounds like one I'll have to watch for!

    How about Moon (2009), starring Sam Rockwell?

    I think a circus involves a ring (a circle) with seated spectators and performers filling the bill. A carnival is more participatory; that is, it includes rides and games for the public to participate in, more like an amusement park but perhaps on a smaller scale. Just a guess on my part.
