APPOINTMENT WITH DANGER---gorgeous "industrial" noir

3 posts in this topic

1950 - Alan Ladd--- yes, it's "noir" and it's the best i've seen in a long long time.

EVERY trick of the "noir" art is in this film---with 2 of the "noir" super-stars, Alan Ladd and Jan Sterling.

It's  filmed on location---nighttime, industrial locations, with HUGE 1950's cars and grungy lighting and deserted, rainy streets.

This is the REAL thing.

This is also Jan Sterling in "new look" fashions that she was born to wear, that is, the kind of clothes a "gun moll" would wear in 1950.

But it's mainly Alan Ladd-- petite, gorgeous, and bitter - our anti-hero of "NOIR."

Agree. It's a great picture. Calvert was a British import, and this was one of her few Hollywood assignments.

I love the scenes where Jack Webb and Harry Morgan get to interact. They became life long pals and of course worked on Dragnet '67.
