MissGoddess, September 5, 2007 in Film Noir--Gangster
One of the most realistic and believable denizens of noir is *Edmond O'Brien* . One seldom if ever meets anyone in real life who looks like Dana Andrews or Alan Ladd---but there are plenty of guys like O'Brien, there always have been---just not with his talent.
*O'Brien in 1984*
*O'Brien with Terry Moore in Two of a Kind*
A few bad cops.
*Where The Sidewalk Ends*
*Touch of Evil*
*The Man Who Cheated Himself*
*Kiss Tomorrow Goodbye*
*On Dangerous Ground*
*Albert Dekker and Susan Hayward in Among the Living*
"I was born when she kissed me, I died when she left me, I lived a few weeks while she loved me."
*In A Lonely Place*
You weren't lying about posting some nice photos today, Miss Gun for Hire. Claire Trevor is always appreciated.
My favorite photos are from last evening. I cannot get enough of Gloria Grahame. Those were spectacular. I've haven't watched *In a Lonely Place* but I do have it on DVD now. It's one of the films I have been anticpating to watch since I got into film noir.
Five minutes with Gloria Grahame is all a film like *Odds Against Tomorrow* needs:
I think *In a Lonely Place* will knock you out.
Those are great screen caps of Robbie-Baby and Gloria!!
I think In a Lonely Place will knock you out.
I'm betting you are right. So do you think a guy should trust Gloria Grahame in a game of chance?
Well, you know what they say, Frank, "Lucky at cards...."
Lovely screenshots! Got any more of them Mitchum's? B-)
I love film noir posters. I really need to get Eddie Muller's book, The Art Of Noir: The Posters and Graphics from the Classical Era of Film Noir.
House of Bamboo is a very interesting film. Robert Ryan is terrific in the film. Love Samuel Fuller. I own Rififi but I still haven't watched it yet. I'm in the process of making up for lost film-watching time, so I should get to it soon. My first screening of In a Lonely Place is the next noir on the docket for me. This Gloria Grahame groupie is champing at the...
Maybe I can hurry you along:
Hey, Arkadin -- Ohh, I'm gonna have to put a little jump in my step. Gloria Grahame hasn't let me down yet, and I'm expecting her performance to be one of her best, if not her best. I will see. I'm hoping to watch *Vertigo* tomorrow so that I can finally post in that thread and I want to peep The Fountainhead for the first time this week. I think I can "squeeze" Gloria in this week. Yeah, I'm sure of it.
That's cool. I guess my work is done here!
That's a heckuva send-off, Mr. Arkadin. I thank you for providing me with a Double G fix. I'm always in the mood for that.
Just for you, Double F, here's some Mitchum from Angel Face. The caps from this film are a little tough in the clarity department.
The first cap is Mitch's reaction after "Angel Face" returns his slap with a slap of her own:
I could fire up some Cape Fear, if you like.
