Re: The Q & A with David Meuel, author of The Noir Western

Welcome, David - I am anxiously awaiting the arrival of your book, but in the meantime: 1. What were your working definitions or constructs of "Western" and " film noir " as you started the book, and did they change as you were writing? 2. Certain filmmakers that are among my fav...

Re: The Window

You would be correct, RR. "The Boy Cried Murder."

See Talk About a Stranger (David Bradley 1952) for an interesting twist. Find it here.

Re: Robert Ryan Biographer J.R. Jones To Visit 7/10 & 7/11

Rats! We're out-of-town this weekend for NYC, leaving the house at about 4am on Thursday. Is there a person or place to send or post my questions before then? We hosted a dinner for him and Lisa Ryan aka Mook (and a few others) at our home when there was an event in town for the biography (which is ...

Re: Happy Anniversary!

Thank you, Knitty & Movieman. 31 years - that's almost half of my life (and Mrs. ChiO's age - or so she tells me).

And a Happy Anniversary to Mr. & Mrs. Movieman!

Re: The French Had A Name For It: French Film Noir 1946-64

November 19, 2014 ( In re : Monday night) Monday night’s offerings were French takes on U.S. race relations – stereotypical, harsh, telling – “Whites vs. Blacks in a Black & White World.” The Roxie should have also had a tape loop of the Delfonics’ “Didn’t I (Blow Your Mind This Time)” playing ...

Re: The French Had A Name For It: French Film Noir 1946-64

November 17, 2014 ( in re : Sunday) Elliot and Don dubbed the Sunday matinee “The Hazards of Streetwalking.” That’s how to pull in a crowd, and they did. The 250 seats of the Roxie were again full. Up first was DEDEE D’ANVERS aka DEDEE OF ANTWERP (Yves Allegret 1948). Given my love for UNE SI JOLIE...

Re: The French Had A Name For It: French Film Noir 1946-64

November 16, 2014 We were treated with a fantastic French foursome. LES MAUDITS aka THE DAMNED (Rene Clement 1947) kicked-off the day by forcing me to reflect on the American film noir cliché (all the while noting that a cliché often is a cliché due to its underlying truth) of the alienated U.S. vet...

The French Had A Name For It: French Film Noir 1946-64

Cultural imperialism. Too often film noir is thought of as an American film form. Those that are not American (or, at least, not in the English language) are then consigned to the “Foreign Film” ghetto. Or, that those non-American films noir that are in general commercial release are the only ones, ...
