expanded version of Eddie Muller's "Dark City" book is coming out soon.

I thought that this would be little more than a list of titles I already know well, but it's just brought to my attention Under the Gun (1951), a film with Richard Conte and Audrey Totter. Now that I know about it, I'd sure like to see it. Keep 'em coming, Eddie.

Eddie's take on Touch of Evil:
Quote
Welles capably plays both ringleader and elephant.
Ha! And this:
Quote
Watching Touch of Evil is like drinking vintage wine before it turns to vinegar. The flavor, pungency, and headiness are there, but so is a queasy aftertaste. The filmmaking is intoxicating, at times magnificent, but as the coda of Orson Welles's Hollywood career, it leaves a hangover. Welles could have been the most original talent of the century, but his ego and appetites left his legacy squandered on exhilarating but disappointing productions. He was a hell of a man, but then, what does it matter what you say about people?

Dark City: The Lost World of Film Noir (Revised and Expanded Edition) p. 43

Oh NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

LVC is referenced in Dark City, p. 181:

Quote
The beaked-nose former accountant would knock around Hollywood as a henchman and saddle tramp for fifteen years before Sergio Leone made him an international star, casting him beside fellow squint-meister Clint Eastwood in spaghetti westerns A Fistful of Dollars and The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly.

Eddie, Eddie, EDDIE, if you stray from Dark City to enter Leone territory, make sure your stuff is first vetted here at the Leone Board!!!

On his home turf, Eddie can't be bettered. Here is his comment on Marie Windsor:
Quote
Although indelible in every part she played, Windsor never broke into the top ranks of female stars. She was too physically intimidating--a statuesque five-foot-nine, with a balcony that could support a double run of pinochle.
p. 225

Heh, heh.  No, Drink, don't even try to figure it out.

This is a great channel for noir: https://ok.ru/video/c3036443

It seems they are pirating all the new releases (including all the recent ones from KL), because the PQ is excellent. The down side is that this is a site run by Russians who want to completely data mine your ass. You've been warned.

When There's No More Room in Noir, the Argentines Will Walk the Earth . . . or something.
