Paul Newman day.

harper-the-moving-target-1966-directed-b

3:30 p.m. Harper (1966).  Cool Private Eye film with Paul Newman.  Replaced in Canada with Lady L (1966).

Looking forward to this. HARPER is one of Paul's underrated films IMO.

Have seen Harper a couple of times, but never really saw that much to it.

6:30 p.m.  ‘G’ Men (1935).  Cagney goes straight.

Jimmy made it no secret that he be preferred to be remembered as a song-and-dance man rather than the guy in all those gangster roles. Unfortunately, today that's all most modern viewers (those that even bother to watch the Golden Era films that is), are most likely to remember him for.

This film is sort of a compromise, yes there's gangsters in it, but Cagney is on the RIGHT side of the law for a change. It's actually a pretty good film.

the-verdict-1200-1200-675-675-crop-00000

8 p.m.  The Verdict (1982).  Arguably Paul Newman’s finest acting moment.

Paul's had so many great acting moments in a lot of films it's difficult to pinpoint just one, but this scene is undoubtably in the top 5.

".........Though he only appears in a few scenes, the “black-market procurer” Brignon’s baleful presence hovers over the film like a malignant poltergeist. He buys and sells girls like he is playing the stock market, using his immense wealth for the depths of depravity.

No matter how far Jenny has risen on her own merits, there will always be vampiric men like Brignon that will shadow her path.

Quai des Orfèvres was instantly recognized as a major work,  winning Clouzot the Best Director prize at the Venice Film Festival and earning praise from those who once blacklisted him."

Edgy little film noir,  "Woman on the Run"--   Wednesday, February 2,  9:45 a.m. Eastern.     Ann Sheridan, in a departure role for her, as a disaffected San Francisco wife, whose artist husband has witnessed a murder and disappeared.   Police can't fathom her attitude, little knowing that she and pushy reporter Dennis O'Keefe are on their own hunt for her endangered husband.   Moody and twisty.   Bonus--  richly cavernous Robert Keith as a police inspector,  real-life father of powerhouse actor Brian Keith.

Makes me so nostalgic for the San Francisco of old.   The movie also streams free on youtube, a real plus!

I agree. I saw it a few years back when it was (I think) first shown on Noir Alley. My comments on it at the time here: https://www.thefedoralounge.com/threads/what-was-the-last-movie-you-watched.20830/page-1337#post-2544605
