White Of The Eye (1987): David Keith is the prime suspect in a multiple murder investigation in rural Arizona. Plot-wise it's not very surprising, it's quite slow and more time is spent on Keith and his wife Cathy Moriarty and their slowly deteriorating relationship than the investigation or the murders (only 2 are shown) but it's strangely intriguing with gorgeous cinematography and Keith and Moriarty are both excellent. 7+/10

Watched this on the Arrow UK blu-ray. Looking forward to diving into the feature length docu on ill-fated director Donald Cammell, who made just 4 feature films in 25 years before ending his own life in 1996 (a year after his last movie got re-edited/butchered by its producers before release).

Shot Caller (2017): Bleak, raw, intense and grim movie about a guy who does time after accidentally killing his best friend while driving intoxicated, and ends up with a prison gang forcing him to a life of major crime outside the walls. Best movie of 2017 for me so far. 9/10

The Cobra Strikes (1948): Reporter Richard Fraser tries to find out why several men, who all knew each other, end up murdered by poison.One of the suspects is Leslie Brooks, the femme fatale from a better known B-noir, 'Blonde Ice'. Forgettable movie, but it uses misdirection quite decently. 6-/10

Found this online some time ago, in terrible quality, but I can't find it anymore. Maybe a good thing, I doubt this will be anybody's new fave movie.

Do You Know This Voice? (1964): Isa Miranda semi-witnessed the kidnapper/killer of a young boy leave a phone booth, and offers to serve as bait to flush out the perp. Who happens to be her friendly next door neighbor Dan Duryea! Enjoyable, if not very surprising, noir-ish thriller and Duryea is good as always. 7/10

Watched this on the Network UK DVD. Good picture quality, but no extras, not even the usual pressbook/image gallery.

Xh, do you have any idea if Raw Deal will be remastered? It's one of my favorites, I have a mediocre copy and I don't think there are any restored versions out there. That would be so exciting.

Time to get excited, JR... Did some digging just now, and via: https://www.classicflix.com/blog/2017/02/20/more-classicflix-raw-deal-t-men-you-only-live-once-and-more

Film Noir fans should note that with Raw Deal and T-Men part of this deal, combined with another Anthony Mann/John Alton collaboration we’ve licensed (and will announce shortly [He Walked By Night]), a Mann/Alton set is likely to come to fruition.

We’ve accessed BFI prints for both Raw Deal and T-Men and will have more information regarding the potential set in the near future.

ClassicFlix will also release T-Men (1947) and Raw Deal (1948)... T-Men will have an audio commentary and some other bonus features... Fingers crossed the same goes for Raw Deal and He Walked By Night... Good times!

The Night Won't Talk (1952): An artist's model is murdered, and the police have plenty of suspects to work with. Routine low-budget murder mystery that is elevated slightly by the graceful Hy Hazell as one of the model's artists and John Bailey as an artist who gets blackouts when under pressure. 6-/10

Saw this on the Network UK DVD. Good picture/audio quality as usual, but this one's only worth it for the diehards.

Some more John Alton on Blu-ray:

He Walked By Night is a great, great noir. I hope they add a nice commentary or something like that.

Xh, tracked down The Blue Lamp, thanks for the recommendation. I wasn't quite in love with it as much as you are, but it was good. Two problem with the movie: as you say the cops were portrayed way too nicely, more like Victorian Bobbies, and the gangster moll was incredibly hysterical.

But as always the outside photography was great. Loved the grubby little children playing in the rubble. Can you imagine today's helicopter parents dealing with that?

Hahaha, those little brats were great Grin I guess I didn't mind the problems, which I agree with, as much as you did.

Yes, there are. But oh what joy if we stumble on a forgotten gem.  Smiley

Exactly, no pain no gain  Wink

Anyways... Back on track.

They Live (1988): Fun mix between a low-budget lone man ('Rowdy' Roddy Piper) against an alien invasion action-flic and more than a little bit of social commentary by director John Carpenter. 7+/10

Watching B movies is a roll of the dice as there are more bad ones that good ones.

Rolling them dice is a large part of the fun tho Smiley

Roses Are Red (1947): Don Castle is an ambitious D.A. who is kidnapped and replaced by a lookalike actor, also Castle, by mobster Edward Keane, who has not only a local police leuitenant working for him, but also Charles McGraw and Jeff Chandler. Low on the noir visuals and strictly B territory, but entertaining enough to waste an hour or so on. 6+/10
