Hi Everyone:

So sorry that I haven't been around for a long time. Work ended up going nuts, done a few cool features though! Then I had some personal things, some amazing, some terrible. And am now chasing a dream and going back to something else that I'm good at. Anyway glad to see that everyone is still going and that Groggy hasn't obliterated the forum. Will try and be around much more and do my job.

I'm surprised the fight over Peckinpah at thedvdforums hasn't spilled over to here yet...

The new foxclassics web page has announced the following additions to their Fox Noir line:

Daisy Kenyon
(dir. Otto Preminger, USA 1947)

Dangerous Crossing
(dir. Joseph Newman, USA 1953)

Black Widow
(dir. Nunnally Johnson, USA 1954)

(dir. Elia Kazan, USA 1947)


Very nice to see that Boomerang! will finally be available to all. Black Widow will be great if they put it out in OAR (it was shot in Cinemascope). I look forward to finally having a copy of Daisy Kenyon, although it is a woman's drama rather than a noir (there's no crime in it). No dates on any of these yet. Anyway, great news.

Made my day that announcement did. I'm up to date on all of them at the moment and was rather dissapointed that they had it seemed stopped the line. Knowing Fox I more then suspect that BW will be in OAR. Dangerous Crossing is a great little thriller as well good to have it on DVD. I can't wait to get my hands on the latest WB collection when I'm back in NY. (Also for those who haven't got them Angel Face, Macoa and the neo-noir The Yakuza available as part of the Bob Mitchum set are fantastic with Premingers Angel Face being the best of the lot)

Hmm, Premieres would probably be the best movie experiences as it includes before you get to the theater and after but normal screenings I guess I would go with TGTBTU, everyone just seemed to be so engrossed in it. Also The Great Silence, everyone seemed excited that it was the UK Premiere.
  Worst hmm The Perfect Storm when a popcorn fight broke out. Not normally too bad but we weren't involved  :-[

Thanks for the review rrpower. I love The Set Up. Great Wise film and the ending is so brutal but yet has to happen for one of the protagonist's dreams to come true. Marty has gone on record to say he based the look of his fight scenes in Raging Bull on this great film.

Re The Seattle Noir fest: I would be there if I could, in a heart beat. I'm hoping to catch the one in NY next year. i missed this years  :'(

Thanks Mike, 300 - 600. Thats not too bad, have paid more on some. Might just have to pick 'em up  O0

Hi Mike, I adore your posters. They're wonderful. I've been trying to track down an original US 1/2 sheet of The Wild Bunch but have had little success, have you seen these being  sold recently? Also an Insert of The Wild Bunch is one I've not heard of, only seen the Australian Daybill.

Kind of Noir though Nakadai as White Heat has been often pointed out as a noir (though I go with it being one of the last of the WB Gangster cycle)
