  1. ALL THROUGH THE NIGHT ACROSS THE PACIFIC THE BLUE DAHLIA THE GLASS KEY

  3. "I'm not crazy about yours. I didn't ask to see you. I don't mind if you don't like my manners. I don't like them myself. They're pretty bad. I grieve over them long winter evenings. And I don't mind your ritzing me, or drinking your lunch out of a bottle, but don't waste your time trying to cross-examine me." "This is an all-or-nothing proposition, ain't it? If we make a find, we'll be lightin' our cigars with hundred dollar bills. If we don't, the difference between what you put up and what I put up ain't enough to keep me from being right back where I was this afternoon, polishing a bench with the seat of my pants. Put 'er there, pard."
  4. William Holden would go onto becoming Wilder's favorite. Funny how it works out sometimes.
  5. I don't care, never have. Its the movies-its entertainment not Sunday school. In fact it isn't even something that pops into my mind-EVER when I'm watching movies. I've never put actors into that 'godlike' status I guess. They're personal lives aren't even attractive to me. Its what they DO on the screen that defines them in my mind. Personal preferences in life are BORING....but performances....now there's something I never get tired of seeing. The feeling you get after you've seen a great one is a feeling of the utmost admiration for who's given it. Motion Pictures and the people who make them what they are-man! What a racket!!
  6. Is the book you read written by CHARLTTE CHANDLER? Great book. Wilder's always been an idol of mine as a Director and Writer. There's no movie he made that I don't enjoy watching.
  7. I love THE KILLING & KILLER'S KISS.
  8. Bob is right. The visual motifs are merely unique conventions used by the Directors, Film Noir is about the characters. Oftentimes tragic, or very ordinary people who make decisions that lead them down the wrong path. Getting involved with a woman who wishes her husband dead, or joining up with a gang of thieves for a one time only deal, or not knowing when to quit a life of crime.
  9. I never said the re-make was better than the original, I was stating a fact for the folks who've not seen it yet and have read the book. Compared to other remakes out there, this one isn't bad.
  10. Universal Classic Monster Movies. Frankenstein Wolf-Man Dracula Invisible Man The Mummy Creature From the Black Lagoon And my little brother likes the old gangster movies too. King Kong too.
  11. Different system today. Today its money-money-money. It didn't used to be. They lack decent scripts. They lack the ability to carry a movie based on their own merit. Today's it Special Effects that often carry them. They lack a sense of morality, because today immorality sells. They lack filmgoers that go to see their movie, because they truly want to go and see their favorite actor/actress. Remakes, sequels, and recycled ideas dominate the marketplace, audience quality has also deteriorated along with the dramatic acting. Its the trickle effect. Acting stinks. Audience stinks. Studios stink because they prefer not to take risks. Movies stink.
