    I'm All Mixed Up!

    When I first saw your list, I wondered how you could generate such a list so quickly, then I saw the post you were responding to. You have been working on that list for 15 years😉

    The Great Thread Necromancer strikes again!
  4. Hey, just for fun I would like to see you construct an example of a deductive argument which could be used to identify film noir.

    The Problem with Charlton Heston

    I do not think the movie Diamond Head was mentioned, probably for good reason. It was awful.

    I Just Watched...

    My take as well, although, to be fair, it was on too late for me to stay awake past about the first day.

    What film is this scene from?

    The following is what could be described as off-the-wall speculation: It could be a scene from The Kentuckian with Burt Lancaster. In that movie he finds a pearl in a fresh water mussel and thinks it is valuable, provoking the mirth of more sophisticated townsfolk. I have a vague memory of him writing a letter to the President or someone important to offer the pearl.

    Need emoticon for yawn.

    Andy Hardy and the Holiday season(s) ?

    Mine too, along with the Alistair Sim version of Dickens' A Christmas Carol. The rest (including It's a Wonderful Life) I avoid.

    Yellow Sky

    LOL. Not bloody likely from a post made 7 years ago by a poster who was last active two years ago.
  11. I was trying to find Decoy (1946) to watch online and had the same issue. Lots of movies so titled. The one I wanted does not seem to be available anyway.

    Noir Alley

    He has not posted anything on Facebook so all you have missed is the same sort of speculations and opinions you can see here.

    But is there a scene where Gloria Talbot is in the water with her top soaked?

    Share your unpopular opinions here!

    Although I like most of Wilder's movies, I cannot stand Some Like it Hot.

    Unfilmed Noir

    I would add to that list, James Lee Burke novels featuring Dave Robicheaux. I think only one movie was made from these with Alec Baldwin as Robicheaux. I suspect one of the issues with this author as well as John D. McDonald is casting the lead. There are not that many actors who fit the physical description of the leading character. Certainly not Rod Taylor as Travis McGee or Alec Baldwin as Dave Robicheaux. (although both of those are closer to the book's description than Tom Cruise is to the book description of Jack Reacher).
