Classic thriller which CJ might very well dub pre-noir, though of course that would be all wrong.  8/10

I saw this one I agree 8/10, it's sort of off-genre noir in the same vein as The Tall Target and The Black Book

I love Ella Raines, and if I'm ever in Hell I'm going to pummel Howard Hawks for putting his filthy hands on her.

That's what you get, Drink, for not appreciating the genius of When You Read This Letter.

You gotta get up to speed with the lingo  ;D You could include Gaslight The Spiral Staircase, Beware, My Lovely, The Lodger and Hangover Square too.  ;)

Were they already fitting into your last take on noir or you just made up the category today after breakfast?

No it's in Spencer Shelby's Dark City "The Film Noir".  O0

Anyway, I already discussed the matter with Jinxy talking about Beware My Lovely which you, as usual, skipped over.

I saw your discussion, but it's a film I don't really like all that much, so I didn't partake in it.

A excellent film. Almost a masterpiece.  I just found another reason to love Charles Laughton after seeing this film.  This is another underrated Noir.  The acting and cinematography really shine here. I didn't like the ending but it didn't  detract from the film.  I rank this a solid 8 out of 10.
