  1. One of Barbara Payton's most famous quotes (when asked if she wanted to enter detox) was: "I'd rather drink and die." Doesn't get much more noir than that.
  2. I'd absolutely second that. Goldfinger is, far and away, the standout Bond film to me though To Russia With Love and On Her Majesty's Secret Service (Thank you, Diana Rigg!) get a couple of thumbs up as well.
  3. Has anybody mentioned Zachary Scott? I think he's deserving of a spotlight. Love him in Mask of Dimitrios.
  4. He's great in Phantom Lady! And, this guy did a ton of TV. Check out his IMDB credits.
  5. Not quite sure how this works since I liked all the schedules but if I have to pick just one, I'll go with Lydecker's schedule for Gene Hackman, James Whitmore and Joseph LaShelle.
  6. Finally saw this and it's worth seeing if a bit long. Brad Pitt is amazing. I thought the rumor about Brad Pitt's character "killing his wife" was an inside joke of Taratino's -- Brad Pitt would surely like to "kill" Angelina Jolie after their high-profile, ugly divorce!
  7. Dr. Strangelove. It has its moments here and there and perhaps it's Peter Sellers overload but I never got all the hype about it.
  8. 2001, A Space Odyssey. Incredible art direction and SFX but the bad acting and silly, almost incomprehensible story line come together to create the most tedious, snooze-inducing film of all time. No wonder you had to be high to appreciate it! Never got it and I had my opinion re-confirmed when it aired on TCM for what seems the millionth time in July.
  9. I agree with so much of what you've said and I also wanted to give a small shout out to Howard Duff's performance in While The City Sleeps. Not as flashy as some of the other performances but just a great, solid job (and he seemed relatively sober throughout!)
  10. Sean Connery in The Untouchables & Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. "What are you prepared to do???"
  11. Thought the cinematography by John Alton in The People Against O'Hara was spectacular. Interesting noir with a great cast -- Tracy really delivers as do so many Hollywood reliables like Pat O'Brien, John Hodiak and Eduardo Ciannelli. Even better, how can you not love a noir that has a character named "Knuckles Lanzetta" in it? Maybe I'll name my next dog, Knuckles . . .
  12. Note to self: In addition to Beverly Hills swimming pools, also avoid creepy butlers with German accents who preside at monkey funerals . . . Thanks for the welcome!
  13. Totally with you on this idea. I could "Noir" all the time.
