I just watched The Big Heat.

Pretty DAMN GOOD.

I totally agree.  When that lady got her faced burned I was like "OH SNAP!"

But seriously, it's a great Noir/Revenge movie.

The Big Sleep -- 5/5 -- Another FANTASTIC noir that's come from Leone Admirer's recommendation.  Probably my new second favorite noir.  Just excellent.  Bogey is always great.

I was a tad confused in Mrs. Duncan's role in the plot.

The same here. I've seen only two films of rrpower's list.

Does The 39 Steps count as noir? Just curious.

The new foxclassics web page has announced the following additions to their Fox Noir line:

Daisy Kenyon
(dir. Otto Preminger, USA 1947)

Dangerous Crossing
(dir. Joseph Newman, USA 1953)

Black Widow
(dir. Nunnally Johnson, USA 1954)

Boomerang!
(dir. Elia Kazan, USA 1947)


Source: http://www.foxclassics.com/comingsoon.php

Very nice to see that Boomerang! will finally be available to all. Black Widow will be great if they put it out in OAR (it was shot in Cinemascope). I look forward to finally having a copy of Daisy Kenyon, although it is a woman's drama rather than a noir (there's no crime in it). No dates on any of these yet. Anyway, great news.

I just watched The Stranger. A damn fine movie. Orson Welles is possibly the greatest director of all time.

Watch it (legally) here:

Made my day that announcement did. I'm up to date on all of them at the moment and was rather dissapointed that they had it seemed stopped the line. Knowing Fox I more then suspect that BW will be in OAR. Dangerous Crossing is a great little thriller as well good to have it on DVD. I can't wait to get my hands on the latest WB collection when I'm back in NY. (Also for those who haven't got them Angel Face, Macoa and the neo-noir The Yakuza available as part of the Bob Mitchum set are fantastic with Premingers Angel Face being the best of the lot)

The Big Sleep - 3/5


Terrible, convoluted plot that bored me. Bogey and Bacall's chemistry on screen is one thing that makes the movie watchable.
