This will make a very good upgrade from my gray-market DVD edition.

On TCM, in addition to the weekly Sunday Noir Alley showing, Friday evenings in July will have 3 neo-noirs each week, co-hosted by Eddie Muller and Ben Mankiewicz (on the Noir Alley set!)

I'll try to record the intros/outros as usual. Been very busy and haven't posted any in a while. But I record them all and eventually they will be posted  :)

I thought that this would be little more than a list of titles I already know well, but it's just brought to my attention Under the Gun (1951), a film with Richard Conte and Audrey Totter. Now that I know about it, I'd sure like to see it. Keep 'em coming, Eddie.

Eddie's take on Touch of Evil:
Quote
Welles capably plays both ringleader and elephant.
Ha! And this:
Quote
Watching Touch of Evil is like drinking vintage wine before it turns to vinegar. The flavor, pungency, and headiness are there, but so is a queasy aftertaste. The filmmaking is intoxicating, at times magnificent, but as the coda of Orson Welles's Hollywood career, it leaves a hangover. Welles could have been the most original talent of the century, but his ego and appetites left his legacy squandered on exhilarating but disappointing productions. He was a hell of a man, but then, what does it matter what you say about people?

Dark City: The Lost World of Film Noir (Revised and Expanded Edition) p. 43
