Very true, though we've had news of Eddie Muller going back under the microphone for some Fox noir commentarys recently which adds to the sense of hope I guess.

Hey LA I watched "The Big Combo" the other day nice Geneon release though very sparce. Lee Van Cleef and Earl Holiman play a couple of second bannanas to Richard Conti's mob boss. Will give a review when I get a chance to watch it again.

Well, maybe the title of this thread is inappropriate.  I have already been introduced to noir, i just don't know where to turn next.  Any movies you can recommend?

here's a list of noirs I've already seen:

The Third Man
Touch of Evil
The Asphalt Jungle
Le Samourai
Le Cercle Rouge
Rififi
Touchez Pas au Grisbi
Sunset Boulevard
Double Indemnity
Elevator to the Gallows
The Big Heat
Drunken Angel
Stray Dog
The Maltese Falcon
Bob Le Flambeur
Chinatown

I thought they were all excellent.

Aye! Let's hear it for 14!  Afro


But i've still put off seeing the deer hunter.  Sad


I will check out the film you mentioned


Thank you for the list, LA, and thank you for the site, Dave.  I seem to remember running across it once before, and they have OUATITW in their top 100 films list, which is good enough for me.


I'm putting In a Lonely Place at the top of my netflix queue right now.
