    Freelance editor and blogger. I've been reading mystery and detective stories since I was a child. I read every Nancy Drew mystery I could get my hands on when I was young. Since taking Richard Edwards's "Summer of Darkness" course in the summer of 2015 and watching noir faithfully ever since, I think I can say that I am no longer new to film noir and neo-noir.

  2. And I would add The Imitation Game (2014) and The Aftermath (2019) to Keira Knightley's list. I think World War II counts as a period piece these days.
  3. Thanks for posting this clip. George Segal was just so great.
  4. But it sure sounds like George Segal!!! (To be honest, I was more iffy about Segal meeting his wife at a school reunion.😄)
  5. I was thinking of The Quiller Memorandum when I heard the news about George Segal. I also remember him playing his banjo on Johnny Carson with his wife, someone he met at a class reunion, if I recall correctly.
  6. It's not always for good reasons! Key Witness (1947) Somewhere in the Night (1946) Two of a Kind (1951) Where Danger Lives (1950)
  7. Mrs. Popinga knits in The Man Who Watched Trains Go By (1952), starring Claude Rains.
  8. Phantom Lady (1944): Trying to find a hat in a dressing room!
  9. Agreed. I also like the 2008 German film Jerichow, which is updated nicely for issues in the twenty-first century. If you really want noir, the book by James Cain delivers. Ossessione is preceded by a 1939 French adaptation: Le dernier tournant, which I have not seen.
  10. Wow. Even knowing that doesn't stop me from seeing Gene Kelly and Marlene Dietrich!!!
  11. Is that Gene Kelly and Marlene Dietrich in the photo? And what movie is the still from? (This has been bugging me because I thought I had seen all the Gene Kelly films!)
