  1. The most recent film that I consider to have worked as a film noir was "Body Heat" and that was, what, 1980?
  2. > OK ! Who said "I'm getting too old for this stuff?" Danny Glover's character in the original "Lethal Weapon"
  3. I love Mel Brooks. From "History of the World Part I" "Don't get saucy with me, Bernaisse."
  4. "The Mummy" scared the hell out of me when I was a kid. Watching it on Creature Features (any New Yorkers here) gave me nightmares. The scene where he was wrapped alive was terrifying. "Aliens" was not a sci-fi movie - it was classic horror movie where someone is trapped in a house (now a spaceship) and can't get out. An overlooked movie is "Fallen" with Denzel Washington. Nothing gory, but the psychological thrill is unbelievable. "The House On Haunted Hill" with Vincent Price was another that scared the hell out of me when I was a kid. And "The Omen" scared me - probably because I didn't read the book. The reason "The Exorcist" didn't affect me as much is because I did read the book first.
  5. What about The Big Red One with Lee Marvin - a classic

Robert Mitchum is the definitive film noir actor. And how many know that "Against All Odds" was based on this movie.
