Today, an entry from the very small sub-genre of Kid Noir, Talk About a Stranger (1952). Enjoy, but don’t believe everything those little tykes might tell you…
Noirvember 2018, Episode 7: Border Incident (1949)
Another great Anthony Mann/John Alton collaboration. Read more about it here.
Noirvember 2017, Bonus Episode: He Walked by Night (1948)
My previous bonus episode covered T-Men (1947), a recent Blu-ray from ClassicFlix. Now comes another release from the same company, one that may be even more impressive than T-Men: Alfred L. Werker’s He Walked by Night (1948) with directorial contributions by Anthony Mann.
Hollow Triumph (1948) Noirvember 2015: Episode 12
Hollow Triumph (a.k.a. The Scar) (1948) Steve Sekely
Paul Henreid (above right) plays John Muller, a man just released from prison who’s itching to get back to the robbery game, which he does when he formulates a plan to rob a casino. Muller’s buddies are reluctant to join him, but they do and, of course, things go wrong. Very wrong.
He Walked by Night (1948) Noirvember 2015: Episode 1
(I’ve decided to try to post at least a short review of each film noir I watch in Noirvember. Some will be short, some will be longer. Hope you enjoy them!)
He Walked by Night (1948) Alfred L. Werker and Anthony Mann
As David J. Hogan points out in his book Film Noir FAQ, He Walked by Night and Jules Dassin’s The Naked City (also 1948) both work as police procedurals, but He Walked by Night contains far more noir elements, thanks in large part to John Alton’s brilliant cinematography of on-location Los Angeles.
