Mr. and Mrs. 1SO Noir Marathon
« on: November 22, 2011, 01:56:38 AM »
This is for the wife, and will not interfere with finishing my Directors of Shame or Mike Leigh Marathon. Nor will it delay my Kurosawa/Truffaut/Ray marathon. This should take most of 2012 to complete.
Anything we see this month I will post in Noir-vember. After that I will post reviews in "Write about the last movie you watched". This thread is to keep track of the list plus any further discussion.

Wow - that is quite the undertaking, 1SO!  I look forward to following along.
Kevin: Yes, why does there have to be evil?

Supreme Being: I think it has something to do with free will.

Force of Evil (Abraham Polonsky, 1948)
Odds Against Tomorrow (Robert Wise, 1959)
These I especially like (Anne Bancroft singing in Don't Bother still makes my head spin). I would add The Killers & Crossfire if you haven't already seen them.

I've seen the 1946 The Killers, but I don't think I've seen the 1964 remake with Lee Marvin and Angie Dickinson. Added Crossfire.

A lot of the same directors keep popping up.

4 from Jules Dassin
4 from Edward Dmytryk
3 from Phil Karlson
3 from Fritz Lang
3 from Anthony Mann
3 from Robert Siodmak

I'm going to have to bump this from time to time so it doesn't vanish to page 2 before I'm done.

Yes. It's an unpopular opinion.

I missed that review. And I have to agree with verbALs assessment a couple of posts down from yours. After you finish this marathon, or at least at the halfway point, you should give it another chance. After a good dosage of noir, you may see it and Widmark's performance in a different light. Plus, it's worth it just to watch Googie Withers and Francis L. Sullivan play off each other.
