  1. By the way, if you are a fan of Stephen Rea, he's really good in a four-part murder mystery called Flesh and Blood that's showing on PBS stations.
  2. Dolours Price dies a while ago now. She and her sister were quite active in the IRA. But I'll say no more. I read Say Nothing because I heard the author in an interview about his book say that he was researching a murder mystery and inadvertently solved it by the time his research was done. Fascinating interview and fascinating book. Well worth a read, so no spoilers from moi!
  3. Odd Man Out (1947) Say Nothing: A True Story of Murder and Memory in Northern Ireland is a 2019 book by Patrick Radden Keefe that mentions Stephen Rea. Seems Rea had some ties to the IRA. It's a really good book, too. I wouldn't be surprised if the book is made into a film at some point.
  4. The Killer That Stalked New York (1950) Panic in the Streets (1950) Both are about the threat of pandemics, which is a timely and relevant concept these days.
  5. Bit of film trivia related to this category: Sunset Boulevard (1950) was supposed to start with a scene with Joe Gillis's dead body already in the morgue, but it was cut after advance screenings showed that audiences found the scene funny when it wasn't meant to be.
  6. Television shows with scenes in a morgue Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries Silent Witness Van der Valk Crossing Jordan
  7. Johnny O'Clock (1947) Magic Mike (2012)
  8. Joe Versus the Volcano (1990) Bonnie and Clyde (1967) This one is a two-fer: It can go in yesterday's category, too. Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid (1969)
  9. Whatever Happened to Baby Jane? (1962) Bunny Lake Is Missing (1965)
  10. Dogman, a 2018 Italian film. I'm glad I didn't know that it was based on a crime in Italy before I saw it.
  11. How about the television show Northern Exposure?
  12. Walk East on Beacon (1952) East Side Kids (1940)
  13. Edward G. Robinson also took a bath in House of Strangers (1949).
  14. James Bond in all the Bond films. 😀
  15. Murray the K -- the name is familiar, but I was a Cousin Brucie fan myself. I haven't been following this thread faithfully, so maybe someone else has already posted this: COUSIN BRUCIE IS BACK! On Saturday evenings from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. You can find him at http://www.insideradio.com/free/cousin-brucie-morrow-comes-full-circle-with-saturday-s-return-to-wabc/article_3448f324-eb48-11ea-9b3a-df2e1229de1c.html?fbclid=IwAR24p5V6AHLhNVSGQvkx8bSRsrFVjzzPC25vcwSHVMny35J8-mOFzaTmMFI Or try www.abcradio.com.
  16. The Sound of Music: The Trapp family hides from the Nazis in a convent.
  17. Miss Fisher and the Crypt of Tears (2020)
  18. The Little Foxes (1941) Hush . . . Hush, Sweet Charlotte (1964)
  19. House of Strangers (1949) The Bad Sleep Well (1960) The Oscar (1966)
  20. Embrace of the Serpent (2015)
  21. The Sniper (1952) was set in San Francisco, but the city is never identified. As Eddie Muller pointed out in his DVD commentary, it's his hometown and it's obviously San Francisco, but maybe no one in San Francisco wanted to be associated with a serial sniper.
  22. Saw this after I posted. Hats off to Princess of Tap.
  23. Did I mention that I'm a film noir fan?! And am I imagining things or do almost all of them have a scene in a soda fountain? 😀
  24. I forgot this one: In The Best Years of Our Lives (1946), Dana Andrews's character, Captain Fred Derry, comes back from the war to his old job as a soda fountain clerk and makes even less money than he did as a GI, and his wife is mightily displeased.
