Nice  :)

I'm sure they'll show Double Indemnity and The Maltese Falcon, et al., but I am specifically looking forward to seeing some films that are unavailable on DVD.

In conjunction with TCM's 9-week noir program this summer, TCM and Ball State University are offering a free multimedia noir course taught by film noir expert Richard Edwards, Ph.D. You even get a certificate upon completion  ;D

The course starts June 1st and goes till August 4th, but you can sign up as late as July 19th.

You can get info and sign up here https://www.canvas.net/browse/bsu/tcm/courses/film-noir

It's free and there's no obligation, so what the hell, I'll sign up, and if I have time to follow it and enjoy it, great; if not, who cares.

Here is the text of the email I received from TCM:

Inviting movie fans from around the world to join in a multimedia investigation and celebration of film noir!

Sign up now for this free, flexible online course from Ball State University, taught by film noir expert Richard Edwards. It includes a special video series, “The Case of Film Noir,” plus social sharing and other features that make the course fun and easy to enjoy on any computer or mobile device.

The course runs concurrently with the Turner Classic Movies "Summer of Darkness” programming event—airing 24 hours of films noir every Friday in June and July. This is the deepest catalog of film noir every presented by TCM (and perhaps any network), and provides an unprecedented opportunity for those interested in learning more to watch over 100 classic movies as they investigate “The Case of Film Noir.”

The course will deepen your understanding of the film noir phenomenon—from the earliest noir precursors to recent experiments in neo-noir—and enables you to share thoughts online and test your movie knowledge with a worldwide community of film noir students and fans.

Enrollment is open at Canvas Network, and you may join the course as late as July 19. You’ll have the opportunity to work through videos, podcasts and other interesting materials at your own pace. The course concludes with a live video conference with Richard Edwards and TCM on-air “Summer of Darkness” host Eddie Muller, and course participants who complete all assignments will earn a customized certificate of completion.

Becoming a noir expert has never been this much fun! Enroll today, or you’ll find yourself saying, “I did something wrong, once.”

Huh. Can you still take the course if you're convinced that there's no such thing as film noir?

Side Street (1950) Of course, CJ is enthusiastic about the depiction of Manhattan and the rest, but though Granger is slightly more tolerable here than in other movies, his character does his best to do the wrong action every time. And the schlock is another minus. 7/10

I'm not convinced these are really films noir (The Kneeling Goddess is described elsewhere as an overwrought melodrama), but they may be worth a look nonetheless: http://www.moma.org/visit/calendar/films/1589

Cry Danger (1951) CJ gives it 10\10 and I can't see why. To me it makes a generous 6/10 only because of Powell (and Conrad, especially the russian roulette scene), the rest is cheap and seen before.

what exactly is special about this noir that you wonder why CJ gives it a 10/10? You could have asked that question about a hundred other noirs, too  ;)

I don't think he gave 10/10 to a hundred other noirs. Here the embarrassment  is about the highest rating for a very modest movie.

It's a 10/10 for the great atmosphere, love that trailer park & it's denizens, what can I say. I love the visuals of Bunker Hill, it's the archivist in me.

Also, great dialog. And then of course . . . Richard Erdman.
