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 being such an annoying Melville fanboy.
