I saw the last part of this today on TCM. Looks worthy to go back and watch the whole film...

It's a good movie

Holiday Affair (1949) Director Don Hartman, with noirish cast of Robert Mitchum, Janet Leigh, Wendell Corey, Harry Morgan, and Gordon Gebert.

Before Christmas, department store clerk Steve Mason (Mitchum) meets big spending customer Connie Ennis (Leigh), really a commercial spy. He unmasks her but lets her go, which gets him fired. They end up on a date, which doesn't sit well with Connie's steady suitor, Carl (Corey), but delights her son Timmy (Gebert), who doesn't want Carl for a step-dad. Entertaining enough for what it is 7/10

I thought this was a modern day thriller, instead is a western adventure story, whose protagonist (for no apparent reason) is an ex- Buffalo Soldier.  It is fast moving and original for a good   3/4, the finale being too contrived. Still a pageturner. 7/10

LITTLE BIG MAN - Novecento
No kidding.

By the way Glenn Frankel's book "High Noon: The Hollywood Blacklist and the Making of an American Classic" is an absolutely fantastic read especially if you are as much of a fan of the film as I am.

The Equalizer 2 ( 2018).  The follow up to The Equalizer and Denzel Washington's first sequel.   I liked the original and would give the original a 8.5 out of 10.  This one slips back because of a weaker plot but the action still makes up for it.  I rate this one a 8 out of 10.  My interest in this series also has to do with the director, Antione Fuqua.  He has been tabbed to make the Scarface remake by Universal Studios in a project that has been in hold for years.  The current hold up is Fuqua wants Denzel Washington to play the lead but Denzel has balked at that.  The Equalizer series reminds me of the John Wick series.  Ive seen the original John Wick and need to see the second one.

Thanks again, Drink. Eddie is always good, but he truly excels for films he particularly likes.

... and for films that have a particularly interesting backstory  ;)
