MIRAGE (1965) - serve me some NOIR!

4 posts in this topic

WOW! Is this gorgeous NOIR, or what.?

But---it's also Neo-Noir, in which terror originates from a government or a corporation which is out of control.

I love this film. One of Edward Dmytryk's best. I wish TCM would air it more often.

This one has great New York locations and an excellent supporting cast. Diane Baker is a helpful female but she may not be what she seems. George Kennedy is a violent thug who gives Peck some pain. Robert H. Harris is a nasty, short tempered psychiatrist. And best of all we have Walter Matthau as a wisecracking private eye.

Interestingly (and everything about this film is!) the use a similar "symbol" and "catch-phrase" for the 

weirdo cult in the great episode of MATLOCK about the "cult," when he defends a man (the actor who played

Howard Sprague (Jack Dodson) on the original "Andy Griffith Show" is accused of murdering a cult leader.
