Although I didn't get a chance to see as many films noir as I would've wanted during #NoirSummer, one thing that the course did do was to pique my interest about many, many films. I mean, I'm sure I will check out In a Lonely Place soon after Eddie Muller's enthusiastic thumbs-up! One of the sources for that curiosity were the Daily Doses. With most of those short clips, I found myself intrigued as to what would happen next, and I'm sure I will check out most of those sooner or later. So to keep it contained to a certain amount of films, choose your five favorite films from the 32 Daily Doses that we learned about during the course. Maybe that can help me or others choose which ones to check first. M La Bete Humaine The Letter Dark Passage Laura Murder, My Sweet Ministry of Fear Mildred Pierce Gilda The Killers Border Incident The Big Sleep Out of the Past The Mask of Dimitrios The Postman Always Rings Twice The Third Man Kiss Me Deadly The Hitch-Hiker Caged D.O.A. Strangers on a Train Too Late for Tears The Strange Love of Martha Ivers 99 River Street Kansas City Confidential The Narrow Margin Beware, My Lovely Elevators to the Gallows The Asphalt Jungle Desperate Brute Force Criss Cross The ones in Bold are the ones I'm most curious about, and italics are the ones I've seen.
I had an odd intro to Film Noir. When I was about 8 years old,I went to the movies to see the Steve Martin film "Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid" and that was my gateway to Film Noir. In the film, Martin "co-stars" with the heavyweights of Film Noir via wonderfully edited clips from films such as "Double Indemnity", "The Big Sleep" and "White Heat". Martin and Carl Reiner's collaboration was a loving parody/homage to a Film Noir and it introduced me to that dark world. Watching this movie made me want to track down all of the movies featured in it. And soon my love of Film Noir was in full swing. Which movie got you hooked on Film Noir?
