    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. I have to agree: I wish Eddie Muller would direct more people to these forums.
  2. Larger Than Life (1996), starring Bill Murray Water for Elephants (2011) And then there are the Asian elephants in China who have moved 300 miles north -- in China -- and are still on the move today (2021). They supposedly have their own video channel! I haven't found the video channel, but you can find them on YouTube. (I've been a day or more late for a while now, but I hope to catch up to Classic Categories at some point.)
  3. Blackboard Jungle (1955) To Sir with Love (1967) Sidney Poitier appears in both, stars in the latter.
  4. In The Mad Miss Manton, Barbara Stanwyck and friends run around town trying to solve a murder, and most of them, including Stanwyck, are wearing minks (or what look like minks).
  5. Gavin McLeod was great in this Dick Van Dyke episode and in MTM. So sad that my favorite television stars are slipping away. BTW, I like how the necklace ends up being a gift to Rob's mother, who just loves it.
  6. Valley Girl (1983), which was Nick Cage's first starring role
  7. Moby Dick (1956) Moon (2009) In the Heart of the Sea (2015) The Martian (2015) The Guilty (2018)
  8. How about Ezekiel "Easy" Porterhouse Rawlins, the main character in Devil in a Blue Dress (1995) and the creation, of course, of the novelist Walter Mosley?
  9. This news about Olympia Dukakis is so sad. She and the rest of the cast were so wonderful in Moonstruck. I guess I'll always remember her as Mrs. Castorini, Cher's mom.
  10. Television shows: Medium, starring Patricia Arquette Ghost Whisperer, starring Jennifer Love Hewitt
  11. *****Spoiler alert Spoiler alert***** Smoothie is the evil bartender in The Mob (1951)
  12. Take Me out to the Ballgame (1949) Eight Men Out (1988) A League of Their Own (1992)
  13. Treasury Department: Borderline (1950), Charade (1963) FBI: The House on 92nd Street (1945), The Street with No Name (1948)
  14. 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.
  15. Thanks for posting this clip. George Segal was just so great.
