I can't tell what this is exactly, but there are some good titles sprinkled among the nine: https://www.amazon.com/Noir-Archive-Volume-1-1944-1954-Blu-ray/dp/B07KZ4MW2C?

Here's all the info:

https://www.blu-ray.com/movies/Noir-Archive-Volume-1-1944-1954-Blu-ray/226593/

711 Ocean Drive (1950) is a hidden gem and Escape in the Fog (1945) only has appeal to Boetticher completionists.

The Black Book aka Reign of Terror (1949) is directed by Anthony Mann, so that's great that another prime era Mann movie is released on bluray.

The Equalizer 2 (2018)  I'm a big fan of the original Equalizer film starring Denzel Washington so I have been waiting for this for a while. Its pretty good.  The plot isn't that good but the action and suspense pretty much makes up for it. The director, Antoine Fuqua, has been pegged to direct the Scarface remake that Universal has had in development for a long time.  Apparently one of the major hangups is Fuqua wants Denzel to play Scarface but he is hesitant to do so.  Anyway, I like these types of films.  I have seen John Wick. Great film. Both The Equalizer and John Wick are similar. I have got to see John Wick 2.  I haven't seen any of the " Taken" films and will check them out too.  My bad. I rank The Equalizer 2 as a 8...

Turns out TCM/Noir Alley eventually posts all of Muller's intros/outros here http://noiralley.tcm.com/video-archive

But they aren't posted immediately – the most recent one is from Nov. 25 (The Killing).

And it only goes as far back as September 23 (The Stranger). I'm not sure if they just started posting these recently, or if they always posted them but remove them after a few months.

I think I'll keep recording them and posting them myself – my recordings are not great quality and I don't post them immediately – but once they're there, they're there forever  :)

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

Thank you! (Although "forever" should be in quotes, of course). We don't really care about the quality, since the content is the important point. Just do what you've been doing, which has been a great service (at least to me).

Me too, I've been working a lot of OT every weekend and haven't been able to watch Noir Alley since Thanksgiving.

According the bluray.com forums, Kino is going to release The Silent Partner (1978) on bluray [Region A]  at some point this year.

I know it's neo-noir but the movie doesn't have a thread so I figured this is the best place to post this news.

Edit: They announced it on FB:

This is good news. I haven't seen it in a mighty long time, but I remember it being one of the better neo-noirs out there.
