Sony Pictures Home Entertainment, The Film Foundation and Turner Classic Movies partner on the third collection in the series, Columbia Pictures Film Noir Classics III. In this volume, five films, fully restored and remastered, are showcased featuring My Name is Julia Ross, The Mob, Tight Spot, Drive a Crooked Road and The Burglar.

Weirdly, amazon is still not showing this. TCM's website has it, and says it's shipping 14 Feb. But they aren't offering much of a discount. I sure hope this isn't an exclusive release.

Agreed and there is some comment on problems with "backorders" on Back Alley Forums:

Thanks, CJ. According to a post at that link, there's a promotion code (TCMNOIR20) which takes 20% off. But with shipping, the cost is still $40.99 (and maybe they add sales tax on top of that?).

That thread also had some other useful news: the Warner Archive has just released 4 Bogarts, including the very-noir "Conflict". At some point I'll probably be getting that.

Cool Site  Afro

We could probably do the same for NYC & New York State Noir locations,  Azn

I know where the police station in "The Window" is, Bogards Night Club location from "Sweet Smell of Success", the Bank hold up site in "Odds Against Tomorrow".

Well, NY has so many, once you start, the project would consume your whole life.

I'm definitely on a Film Noir kick lately, I've sort of exhausted the Western run I was on (for about 4 years) I started getting diminishing returns on Westerns, think I've seen most of the best ones.

Noirs I've only seen maybe 150 + or - Selby lists almost 500, but I doubt there are that many Hard Core Noirs, this "Blackout" book I'm reading may put me on to a few more

Considering that Westerns aren't made anymore, I've made peace with the fact that the day will come when I'll have no more good ones to watch  Sad

I presume I've seen as many (or maybe even more) western (american ones, I mean) as you but I don't have the impression that I've seen most of the good ones. I think that many good ones are hard to get, that's all. And there's a lot of passable stuff which makes good watching though not ranking in the 8\10-10\10 range.

For a while there every time I'd read a good recommendation for a Western and tracked it down I've been disappointed, they are watchable, but tedious. But I'd be open to suggestions on GOOD ones.  Afro Afro
