February brings the Noir circus back to town, along with ringmaster Eddie Muller: http://www.seattlefilm.org/events/detail.aspx?FID=91
Man, do I love double features. I'll definitely be seeing Moonrise (w/ Gail Russell) and Night Has a Thousand Eyes (with Gail Russell and Edward G. from a Cornell Woolrich tale). Those are two I've been curious about for a while. Woman in Hiding/Jeopardy are another pair I've never seen. And Conflict is one of the few Bogarts I've missed.

Too bad, suckers. In the Noir World there are those who get to live in Seattle, and those who have to spend their lives watching television.

May I change my category?

Doesn't matter much. In fact, I think there's a short documentary with the disc that covers the differences, and they aren't all that significant. Flip a coin, watch either version, then watch the doc, and you'll be good to go.

Also check out James Garner in "Marlowe" based somewhat on Chandler's "The Little Sister" sometime if you can, It wasn't bad if I recall & Rita Moreno does a nice strip tease.  Shocked

I've wondered about that one. Why doesn't it quite live up to its billing?

It just feels too much of studio product in the bad sense. I mean, it feels as if it was put together on an assembly line. Some plot holes. But it's not complete rubbish.

Then why doesn't it get a "10" (or at least a "9")? It's not only a great film, it's a great Mitchum film!

the plot, thats why. i really didn't know exactly what was going on, just a general gist of it. Mitchum and Greer were great, and so was the cinematography, but that plot just hard to follow (i loved the themes of it though)

How is that the fault of the film? Give yourself an "8" and the film a "10."

Embarrassed
well im sorry i obviously didn't like it as much as you

i guess i didn't follow the plot very well because i really didn't connect with it right away until it started to end. Objectivly speaking, yeah it's a great film, with great acting, writing, direction, and cinematography. But subjectivly speaking, i just didn't connect with it. Maybe if the film spent a little more time at the beginning showing more scenes with Ann and Bailey together, i might have felt more of a connection right away.
