All six films are presented for the first time on Blu-ray in the UK, with The Mob, Tight Spot and Murder by Contract making their world Blu-ray premieres.

If you're looking for hardboiled crime fiction to read, this guy is pretty good: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B08PF9SL5V/ref=sspa_dk_detail_4?
Amazon's "Look Inside" feature is pretty good on this one--you can read the whole first novel for free.

Pepe le Moko? Now French Poetic Realism is considered noir? Muller will rebrand anything he can.

I am happy if they expand Noir Alley to include other films, such as the French Poetic Realism films that inspired noir. There are only so many noirs out there, and TCM doesn't have rights to all of them. Noir Alley has already shown quite a few twice. (With that said, there are better Poetic Realism movies than Pepe le Moko; Port of Shadows is one of my favorite movies ever.) But I'm all for expanding the parameters of what they will show on Noir Alley, and hopefully keep Noir Alley around for a long time to come  :)
