  1. What was Fuller's original ending? Shockproof reminded me of Tomorrow Is Another Day lovers on the run with a similar kumbaya ending.
  2. I don't remember it Ill watch it and see if I recall it. I just watched it, I'd seen it before and the ending was really contrived, and they all lived happily ever after, lol.

  5. Yea, but look at what happened to Al Franken, this stuff gets ridiculous sometimes. Like you mentioned before he said she said gets pretty murky.
  6. You are in for a real treat then, it really shows what you can do with a low budget and lots of guerilla filmmaking, Its one of my favorites.
  7. Odds Against Tomorrow, Noir, then and Now Then (1958-9) - New York Central RS-3 Alco Diesel Switcher rolling North through the 7th & Warren St. intersection, Hudson, NY Now, I took this December 21, 2018 a CXS SD40-2 (EMD) going South through same intersection. they removed the stop lights, rail road crossing gates, and the old bus terminal is a store but everything else is essentially the same.
  8. Its hard to believe you are asking that question. Its a dark story told in a visually stylistic manner, of events spiraling out of control including flashbacks and dream sequences. Its not polished Hollywood product we are used to but it was interesting enough for me. Its not much different from Detour - events spiraling out of control and wrong decisions made.
  9. Here is the simplest explanation that covers all the bases. The term BTW was coined in the mid 1930s by French right wing and political publications to condemn those films which were morally dubious or against the state. When French critics first saw the new American films hit Paris after the liberation, they wrote that the films reminded them of what they called Films Noir. Films Noir are pan generic dark stories filmed in a visually stylistic manner, that have enough of those elements to tune/tip the film Noir for you. It covers all the bases. Its not a genre never was.
  10. You didn't watch it long enough, if you have to ask that, It just gets darker and darker. Pierre Chenal afterwards made a very good French Noir called The Sinners Of Paris
  11. Ill try and catch it for sure
  12. I saying it may have been the intent of the director. I liked the piece of music and the snowfall so it didn't bother me. Sergio Leone and Ennio Morricone shot a lot of scenes to fit the music pieces, a good example is Ecstasy of Gold.
  13. I think it was timed to the music piece.
