  1. Positive that I’m not the only one who will watch the same movies over and over and over (drives my wife crazy); The big names almost everyone knows but that secondary tier and below the names get more and more obscure. Having said that one of my favorites is Steven Geray. He is the low level clerk corrupted by Zachery Scott in “The Mask Of Dimitrois” and the washroom clerk in “Gilda”. In the only film where he is the lead is the low budget “So Dark The Night” and for a B film noir it is surprisingly good ( better than some A level big budget noirs). So Dark The Night is worth tracking do
  2. Hello all, Are the materials for this course still online somewhere? (Or is there a kind soul who may be able to provide them?) A recent trip to Los Angeles inspired me to revisit film noir in a comprehensive for the first time in a decade and Summer of Darkness is perfect for what I want, but obviously long since passed. I’ve emailed TCM with the same question but haven’t received a reply. Any tips out there, even if it is just a syllabus? All I’ve found is the TV schedule. Many thanks in advance for any suggestions!
  3. Not a made-for-TV movie. Probably a 1940 film noir. "The poster remembers the plot like this: a man and his mistress have either just killed, or are about to kill, the man's wife. The wife was about to go on a train trip, so the mistress impersonates the wife to create an alibi, etc. The man also sent a fake letter to himself, pretending it to be from the wife. However, some passengers on the train somehow figured out the mistress wasn't the wife, and the train was stopped, the police started investigating the missing wife.The poster thinks the movie was black-and-white but gave a range a
  4. Classic Film Lovers, I would like to introduce you to my latest project, Chalk. It's a comedic film noir with all the classic film noir tropes and even more laughs. We pay homage to classic noirs, while bringing a fresh, youthful spin. A tongue and cheek comedy that touches on sensitive subjects such as gentrification, urban displacement, and self-identity. It's a city of chalk slowly being replaced by dry-erase. Our lead detective is trying to solve a string of murders that have left the city on edge. It's most recent loss, the celebrated mayor of Chalk City. The suspect, the mayors
  5. Does anyone agree with me that the MGM film Party Girl was the final Film Noir after Hollywood gave goodbye to this mysterious yet unique genre. You are most welcome to either agree or disagree with this topic.
  6. This discussion thread for proto-noir, like the Film Noir to Neo-Noir discussion thread, is based on ideas taken from the Summer of Darkness, HEYMOE, VanHazard, and me (Marianne). This discussion thread is a way to continue applying what we learned in Dr. Edwards’s course, TCM Presents Into the Darkness: Investigating Film Noir (aka Summer of Darkness: Investigating Film Noir). We are updating the list of film noir characteristics to start an investigation of proto-noir. Please use as many or as few characteristics as you like to discuss proto-noir and how a particular film could presage t
  7. Hello everyone. I have mentioned several times that I am a Glenn Ford fan and that I want to see every movie he ever made. I have a high percentage of movies seen from his big screen career-past 85%. I thought it was time to start a favourite forum thread on Glenn Ford. Here are some of my favourite Glenn Ford movies in no particular order except the first film: Gilda, which is the first film I saw with him and in my opinion is the sexiest movie I've ever seen. Here are *some* of my favourites: GILDA 3:10 TO YUMA THE GAZEBO THE TEAHOUSE OF THE AUGUST MOON TORPEDO
  8. This discussion thread is based on ideas taken from the Summer of Darkness, HEYMOE, VanHazard, and me (Marianne). We’re working on defining neo-noir and all its subcategories and on compiling a list of neo-noir movies. This first post is simply a way to continue the discussion, which got started under the discussion thread called “Irrational Man: Neo-Noir Masquerading as a Film About Philosophy?” I hope the discussion includes reactions to seeing some of the movies. Borrowings from film noir to define neo-noir and modern neo-noir: 1. Chiaroscuro for black and white films, intense or muted
  9. We did a list a while back on the recently defunct Back Alley Forums that listed all the Noirs that took place around the Christmas Holidays there are more than you'd think. What got me thinking of this was watching Roadblock which had some Christmas decorations, etc., etc. So lets make a list of Noirs that take place around the Christmas Holidays. I'll start with these: Christmas Holiday Roadblock Crime Wave I, The Jury Blast Of Silence add more as we think of them
