Johnny Allegro (1949) - This might get a passing grade if George Raft wasn't the lead, but the subject matter is goofy and it needed a charismatic lead to hold everything together. There are some nice B&W shots and an almost clever mini twist in the early going, but it's not something to ever revisit and is hardly essential viewing. D+

Another miss for the Noir Archive Vol 1 set. The transfer is passable and the exteriors can pop a little at times.

interview with Muller

https://screencomment.com/2020/03/filmnoir-eddiemuller/#disqus_thread

not much here.

btw, I disagree with the writer who says "These are tough times for movie lovers. Theaters across the country are closed, many libraries shuttered and people are staying home."

for people who aren't working, or working from the office, they stay home and watch movies all day, it is the best of times as a movie lover

The Jenkins Culture Bunker is up and running. All visitors are denied entrance at the front gate. Security patrols operate 24/7. Mrs. Jenkins has some mean-looking carving knives. And the discs spin on and on . . .

Yea! Obviously life is good for a film buff in these times of multiple resources to sample.

Quote
Kiss the Blood Off My Hands

Synopsis: Screen legends Joan Fontaine (Rebecca, Suspicion, The Bigamist) and Burt Lancaster (Desert Fury, I Walk Alone, The Train) star in Kiss the Blood off My Hands, a classic film noir about fate and love amongst the most unlikely individuals. Former POW Bill Saunders (Lancaster), now living in England, is scarred with unstable and violent tendencies. After killing a man in a bar fight, he flees the scene and manages to find cover in the home of Nurse Jane Wharton (Fontaine), who agrees to take him in and believes his story that the killing was an accident. Now in love, Nurse Wharton tries to secure Saunders a job delivering medical supplies when he's released from prison after serving time for fighting with a police officer. Things take a turn, however, when a racketeer (Robert Newton, Odd Man Out) who witnessed Saunders' murder threatens to turn him into the police unless he agrees to assist in a crime. Beautifully shot in glorious black-and-white by the great Russell Metty (Touch of Evil, The Lady Gambles) and stylishly directed by Norman Foster (Journey into Fear, Woman on the Run).

Special Features and Technical Specs:
NEW 2K RESTORATION OF THE FILM
NEW audio commentary by critic Jeremy Arnold
Theatrical trailer
Optional English subtitles for the main feature
STREET DATE: JUNE 9
