  1. 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.

    In NYC before FM, Cousin Brucie was all we listened to. Loved him. I had my little white and gold transistor  radio (plastered up to my ear) with me wherever I went.  the echo of the voice saying "Cousin Brucie, Cousin Brucie!. Every summer coming back from the Catskill Mountains, my dad driving, my mom in the front and my sister and I on the back seat and always the newest Four Season number 1 hit would be playing on the radio, Cousin Brucie the DJ of course. I also remember fondl,y Murray the K and his Swingin' Soirree. anyone else remember Murray the K?

    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

  3. 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.

    I love how specific your examples are! Thank you.

    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?

  5. 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.

  6. Stranger on the Third Floor (1940) ends with a scene in a soda fountain.

    In the Strange Affair of Uncle Harry (1945), one of Harry's sisters and one of her friends gossip over ice cream cones at a soda fountain about the youngest sister and her hypochondria.

    In Tension (1950), Warren Quimby (Richard Basehart) is the manager of an all-night drugstore with a soda fountain.

    The Sniper (1952) tries to call his psychiatrist from a soda fountain.
