You took that photo? If so, thats a GREAT shot. I've debated over the years about playing around with photography and my interest was gonna be primarily in black and white shots.   There is a lot to learn in photography which is one of the reasons I've kept putting it off...

The new digital cameras make it quite easy nowadays.

Once they started using real locations, they didnít do much of the noir cinematography.

You can still see the Dutch Angles, the High and Low perspectives, the field of focus shots. Look at Naked City which instead of sets the city itself, it's grids and diagonals, the physical parts of its various superstructures, are like nets'cages of steel, brick, and concrete. It can still work.

But its true about the lighting aspect of it, you don't see the studio set lighting since they are using more of the natural souces.

Here is a noir image I took a couple of weeks ago to illustrate.

So who else is a fan of this terrific pre-code film?

A young lady (Barbara Stanwyck) wants to work her way up in the work force, and she does so by sleeping her way to the top. Things get complicated when a murder-suicide takes place...

I like it also

The reviews say the original is better. I enjoyed it.  I got it on my list of DVDS to purchase.  It was filmed on location in London which is another bonus...

If I see it offered free streaming somewhere I'll check it out.

Moma show

Noir highlights:

--MOONRISE (but, oddly, just one late afternoon screening)
--HELL's HALF ACRE (reasonably well-known already--"Honolulu noir" with Wendell Corey & Evelyn Keyes
--I, JANE DOE (memorialized by Gary Deane at his sadly dormant's the link to his comments:
--STRANGERS IN THE NIGHT (early Anthony Mann, screened previously by FNF)
--MAKE HASTE TO LIVE (one of the last women-in-distress films during the classic American cycle, with Stephen McNally up to his usual no good...)

Saw it again yesterday. I'm completely on board with DJ's review.

The french title is the worst, though: "Three Billboards : Les Panneaux de la Vengeance"
Literally: "Three Billboards: Revenge Billboards"

it's great agree.
