Has anyone seen this noir/crime film? It was filmed 60 years ago at a dog track literally five miles from my house ...also near where Scorsese's Ashecliffe was filming a couple months ago, and where Bruce Willis' new movie The Surrogates is filming right now. I have no idea why Taunton is now such a busy place for movies lately.

I just downloaded a good-quality torrent of it Johnny Eager.

I ended up seeing it. Not a big fan. I remember enjoying it a little, but its proven to forgettable ...I don't remember a single detail.

do you remember Van Heflin's Oscar-winning performance as a literature-quoting alcoholic buddy of Robert Taylor's?

There are three types of people in the world, my friend: those who can add, and those who can't.

Van Heflin is good. Robert Taylor, not so much.



That's what you get, Drink, for not appreciating the genius of When You Read This Letter.
