    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.

  1. Just wondering: wasn't Orson Welles's character a real Nazi in hiding after World War II?
  2. I'm going with the television show VEEP again because Selina Meyer gives a lot of speeches.
  3. The television series VEEP I am almost finished watching all seven seasons, and I wonder sometimes if life is imitating art or art is imitating life!
  4. To this list I would like to add Nicola Walker, who is the lead detective in the British television series Unforgotten.
  5. Lloyd Nolan started the Michael Shayne series of films. Hugh Beaumont finished the Shayne series (although it's hard not to picture him as Mr. Cleaver!). Beaumont and Nolan actually appeared in many noirs.
  6. Brigadoon in Brigadoon (1954) is otherworldly, isn't it? I think The Martian (2015) counts!

  10. But there was a medium in a show called Medium, starring Patricia Arquette.
  11. Seabiscuit (2003). Devlin and Alicia rendez-vous at the racetrack in Notorious (1946). Michael Shayne, Private Detective (1940) starts at the racetrack.
  12. The buffalo stampede in Dances with Wolves (1990) Cowboy (1958), with Glenn Ford and Jack Lemmon
  13. The Christine Jorgensen Story (1970)
  14. The Dick Van Dyke episode called "The Brave and the Backache." It's the one where Rob uses one excuse after another to avoid going to Lake Sissy Manoonoo with his wife Laura. Mumford (1999) Lars and the Real Girl (2007)
