Film Noirs coming up on Television soon...


Recommended Posts

Underworld U.S.A. airing on TCM 5/27 at 12:15pm Eastern. Cliff Robertson gives a fantastic performance. Directed with gusto by the always interesting Samuel Fuller.

 

There's also a day of lesser-known noirs the following day, 5/28, including The Lineup (which was very good). I haven't seen The Mob, but I've read some good comments on it.

I just saw a great one, Scarlet Street, directed by Fritz Lang and written by Dudley Nichols. It stars Edward G. Robinson in a very good performance as a milquetoast who falls in love with the wrong girl (wonderfully played by Joan Bennett). She dupes him into painting her picture and then sells it under his nose but the results are . . . well if you know noir.

Hope your make it a point to see "SCREAMING MIMI" Watch Anita Ekberg dance. Look at the "tea party" Gypsy Rose Lee has. Watch Anita walk the streets. Uh...with a big dog. A great dame wtih a great dane. Yeah, it's a B-movie...but since when is that a bad thing?

 

Thanx again Frank.

Hi, BenHur -- You are welcome and welcome to the board. Good luck with your job search. ;)

 

Hey there, CineMaven -- Why Frank...you have been a busy boy!!! Thank you for the listing. I'll have the posted near my television.

 

You are welcome. I'm sure you have seen many of them.

I'm going to tape it but when I'll watch it is the problem. Maybe I'll get to some films in June. :)

 

by the by...I see a couple of Double G movies in that line-up. Can't wait!

 

Yes, a few Double G films are on the docket, including Not as a Stranger on May 29th at 12:30 AM.

 

Bonjour, Madame Nord-ouest -- Well this is just ridiculous! I can't take this much time off work! :)

 

Vous pouvez prendre un peu de temps de voler des banques, pouvez vous non, Annie Laurie Starr?

Well, I wouldn't exactly say I'm brand new to the genre. I've seen classics such as The Big Sleep, The Maltese Falcon, Touch of Evil, The Stranger, maybe a couple more I can't think of right now. Also, I enjoy neo-noirs such as Chinatown and Body Heat. More or less, I know that the genre is one full of little gems that don't get talked about so much, and that is the section of the department I don't know too much about. I'm really excited to check out all the films FrankGrimes listed, it's such an awesome thing for him to give us!

 

Thanks for the kind welcoming!

 

Can't wait to check out The Lady in the Lake also! Have yet to see another Chandler film besides The Big Sleep.

*Vous pouvez prendre un peu de temps de voler des banques, pouvez vous non, Annie Laurie Starr?*

 

Sigh. If only I could, Grimey. I neglected to respond in French because to do so would have been a disservice to the language. Although the translation would have been hilarious, I'm sure. But I am working on it and one day I shall be able to reply confidently.

 

The one upside to this schedule is that Touch Of Evil plays three days before my birthday, so that's a treat for me. I own it, but it's still more fun to watch it live.

Hey, Some Call Him... BenHur1860 -- FrankGrimes, do you have a blog I can check out?

 

No, I'm much too boring to have a blog. My annoyance lives here.

 

I think I'm going to try and make my blog a focus on films as much as possible, so keep checking back! =)

 

I'll try to.

 

Bonjour, Fille Vulgaire -- Sigh. If only I could, Grimey. I neglected to respond in French because to do so would have been a disservice to the language.

 

Cela ne m'emp?che pas d'?tre b?te.

 

Although the translation would have been hilarious, I'm sure. But I am working on it and one day I shall be able to reply confidently.

 

La langue d'amour perdra son ?clat ? partir de ce jour en avant.

Ah, donc vous ?tes aussi une Vierge. Nos anniversaires sont simplement cinq jours ? part.

 

I actually don't have Touch of Evil on DVD yet, mainly because my brother has it. I basically have easy access to it. I'll eventually get it, though.
