  1. I had such a fantastic time watching His Kind of Woman. I had never heard of it before, but I thoroughly enjoyed it and found myself laughing out loud at Vincent Price, whom I adore--he always acted like he was having so much fun at whatever role he was given. The juxtaposition between Robert Mitchum's character and Vincent Price's character was the most interesting to me. Plus, the slapstick comedy--film noir has slapstick comedy? I would have never thought that before watching this movie!--was just so enjoyable. I kept thinking that Vincent Price's character kept quoting Shakespeare.
  2. I fell HARD for Double Indemnity. Before that, I only knew Fred MacMurray as the father from My Three Sons, which, like Leave it to Beaver, I didn't care much for. (While I like '50s and '60s shows and my parents introduced them to me, I never liked "perfect life" sitcoms like those.) So, I was blown away at the very beginning when Fred MacMurray as Walter Neff comes staggering into his office, weak from blood loss from bullet wounds and starts dictating a memo to Edward G. Robinson. I also fell in love with Barbara Stanwyck. Didn't know anything that she did, although I'd seen reruns
  3. That swinging pendulum really does give you a sense of dread. And then when the music fades out and you can hear the monotonous ticks of the clock? It kind of sends chills down your spine. Kat
  4. Great list. You know, I never liked Titanic. Whenever someone asks me what should have won the Best Picture Oscar over Titanic, I always say that L.A. Confidential should have won. Great story, great acting, it immerses you in the '50s L.A., film noir. Kat
  5. My DVD recorder is set! I'm so glad this is being offered! I love film noirs (films noir? See I don't even know the proper grammar for it!). Kat
