  1. If a man is going to killed in an old black and white film, then why not by Bette Davis. The opening is not what I expected. I certainly didn't expect Davis to be the one pulling the trigger. The opening hook is a good one. You want to know what is going to happen next. In regard to film noir, I don't now if she is actually the archetypal femme fatale in this movie, but Davis is certainly a deadly woman. If she does turn out of be the archetypal femme fatale, then Bette Davis can make no better one. I see the beginnings of the genre here with the stark crime, the darkness, the dynamic characte
  2. I found the completely black screen time during the tunnel scene with the very loud noise to be provocative. It made me think that something might happen in that loud blackness. Rarely, do we think of loud blackness. Most of the time with associate the complete dark with silence. Adding the loudness to the darkness throws expectation off kilter. Something isn't quite right about this. I think that all mysteries/thrillers/horror has this quality to it. Something isn't quite right here.
