Noir City #32, in da house! Cover story on Gloria Grahame! This month's cocktail: The Left Hand by Sam Ross: 2 parts bourbon, one part vermouth, one part Campari, 2 dashes of chocolate bitters. I've never even heard of chocolate bitters before, but the other stuff I had on hand. So I gave it a try--yikes, it's sweet. I tried thinning it out with some soda, but it was still too cloying for me. I tried to fob it off on the wife, and even she wouldn't drink it. I'm gonna have to give it a 4/10.

thanks check out this film if you haven't:

The Capture (1950) Another one of those on the cusp "End of The West" Westerns shot in a very noir style its practically not only a bookend film to "Treasure of the Sierra Madre" but it probably could be considered as a stand alone film noir, It begins around the oil fields of Tampico and in the same time (just like TTOTSM) and then moves into the interior just like (TTOTSM). Its directed by John Sturges and has enough sleazy interior cantina shots with old whirling overhead electric fans and trains to keep me happy. It stars Lew Ayres as Lin Vanner, Teresa Wright as Ellen Tevlin Vanner, Victor Jory as    Father Gomez, Jacqueline White as Luana Ware, Jimmy Hunt   as Mike Tevlin, Barry Kelley as Earl C. Mahoney, and Duncan Renaldo (the Cisco Kid) as Carlos

The basic story is Vanner an oil company man gets a hunch and goes after a suspect in an oil company payroll robbery that Mahoney, who was guarding the money, says they passed on the rails just before the motorized railcar was attacked. Vanner takes off on a hunch on horseback to a pass through the mountains, he comes upon Sam Tevlin and orders him to throw up his hands Tevlin who has hurt his right arm yells out that he can't but Vanner can't make out what he yelled and shoots him, wounding him seriously. Tevlin denies having anything to do with the robbery that he was heading back to his ranch, wife and son,  and explains that he couldn't put his hand up because of his wound. Vanner feels disgusted with himself and puts Tevlin on his horse and leads him back to the oil company office, there Mahoney interrogates Teviln roughlyand he dies from his wounds.

Vanner quits the company and accompanies the body of Tevlin to is home town where he meets an old friend Carlos. Ellen Tevlin now with no husband puts an add in the paper for a ranch foreman and Vanner applies. He gets along good with the family until Ellen finds a newspaper clipping about Vanner taking Tevlin and she blames him for his death. Eventually they reconcile, and Vanner decides to clear Tevlin's name and go after the real robber of the payroll.

Its not a great print on the DVD but its worth renting from Netflix, 8/10 for the atmosphere alone.
Finally caught up with this myself. I'm not sure it's a noir, but Selby does list it. It's coming to blu in January, hopefully from a freshly scanned print.
