Despite an exotic Caribbean location, this is mostly shot in studio and the film has a prototypical Hitchcockian MacGuffin. Some of the twists and turns involving an imprisoned husband are decent, yet this side of the film often feels at odds to the central ruby smuggling plot with a menacing Francis L. Sullivan rather randomly coming and going as the man who hires the protagonist. Paul Picerni is also solid as the husband, but nobody here is effective.

12. Time Without Pity (1957, Joseph Losey): 7.8 - Michael Redgrave stars as an (ex-)alcoholic father who has only a few days to save his son from being wrongfully hanged for a murder. Redgrave does a superb job in showing the various stages of hope and despair, he goes through in the process.
13. Odds Against Tomorrow (1959, Robert Wise): 8.5 - On the surface this works already as a very good 1950s heist movie comparable to Kubrick's The Killing or Dassin's Rififi with a tight suspenseful plot and a great cool jazz score. Underneath it deals with racial tensions in the USA of 1950. It does so realistically. Robert Ryan's character is an irredeemable bigot (he's clearly not the kind of movie racist that miraculous will see the wrongs of his beliefs), but still made a three-dimensional character by showing his background and better sides. Meanwhile Harry Belafonte's character struggle as an African-American is best shown in a great scene in which he confronts his ex-wife for integrating too much in the "white" world.The ending is too on the nose alas.
14. The Long Goodbye (1973, Robert Altman) (rewatch): 7.5 > 8.0 - The plot of this moves very natural. It starts simple but just keeps snowballing with Gould's nonchalant Marlowe getting caught up in it.
15. Gumshoe (1971, Stephen Frears): 7.5 - Stephen Frears debut stars Albert Finney as a 31y old wannabe comedian who, because he's a big Chandler and Hammett fan, places an add for himself as private eye. In real noir style he quickly gets caught up in a criminal plot, that's get more complicated every turn, in which he has to rely solely on his wits. The movie clearly is a homage to noirs and full with great dialogues. Frears adds some comedy by contrasting the noir tropes and banter with the mundane world of 70s Liverpool. It also an acknowledgement of the power of movie fantasy; Albert Finney is clearly a character out of his time and way in over his head in the criminal plot, but everyone (including the criminals) tolerate him and play along with him by joining him in his banters; the movie is saying we all would love to be in the fantasy of old school noir movie, making this an antidote to the bleak realism of kitchen sink dramas.

Two decent but unspectacular noirs. Or rather NINOs -- noirs in name only.

7. The Red House (1947)
More of a gothic than a noir, though of course the latter owes a debt to the former.

8. Blood on the Moon (1948)
I don't really see any noir elements here. This is a standard ranchers vs. homesteaders Western. Also a snow western!

FTV:15:Bob le Flambeur (1956) 10.

Image

“Locks are like pretty ladies, you need to practice to know them.”10/10.

The first production made in his own indie studio which had just finished being built, directing auteur Jean-Pierre Melville (JPM) shuffles his new deck of Noir cards with a infectious atmosphere of this new film making freedom, (a major theme in JPM’s works.) JPM & cinematographer Henri Decae span in the interior scenes, ultra-stylised sawn-off panning shots and tightly knitted dissolves over Bob gambling and hanging out with his gang, sharply contrasted in the elegant, low-lit Art-Deco backdrop, giving Bob a classical US Noir appearance, whilst he gets his hands dirty with robbery.

Continuing to build on his outdoor shooting style,JPM turns over the cards of what was to be the French New Wave, with jagged jump-cut camera moves coiled around Bob and his gang walking heads held high round the streets planning out the heist. Called in a review by Claude Chabrol praising the film as “The quality of imperfection” JPM and Decae tie a chic coolness of close-up hand held fluid shots across the gentlemen Noir thief image of Bob with striking wide-shots turning a FNW rustic atmosphere, in JPM holding back from going up-close to shootings, instead staying back to breath in the aftermath.

Standing out from the Femme Fatales of the era across the pond with topless scenes, Isabelle Corey gives a very good debut performance as Anne, whose slip of the tongue to info on the heist to unwelcome guests,Corey makes come across as a mistaken belief in being helpful,rather than spiteful. Joined by the excellent Gerard Buhr as the abrasive, rogue thug Marc,Roger Duchesne gives a sparkling turn as Bob, whose career criminal status has Duchesne rub Bob with a old school gangster divinare Noir charm, utterly at odds with the upcoming, rebellious new brigade.

Keeping Anne on the sidelines to pull Marc towards Bob’s safe cracking, the screenplay by JPM and Auguste Le Breton hold a winning hand in JPM’s first exploration into Film Noir, with the writers setting at the centre a family level of loyalty Bob has with his fellow thieves, the breaking of which into bitter betraying corners being what would become a major theme in JPM’s works. Weighing Bob down with a mountain of losses, the writers present a superb deconstruction of the heist genre. Twisting the plans into the un-making of a heist, the writers match Bob’s precise planning with the mounting tension building in the deep mistrust between his partners, leading to the shattering of Bob’s combination.

this is a remake of carné's le jour se lève with henry fonda in the gabin role and vincent price as m. valentin, er, maximilian the great. rko tried to buy up all available prints of the french classic and destroy them but it resurfaced in the 50s. i didn't care much for this and was especially annoyed by the repeated use of beethoven's 7th symphony 2nd movement. that's probably it for me this year, happy holidays everybody! :party:

31. The Missing Juror (1944, Budd Boetticher) - 5/10
--- A little poor in star-power and finesse, but it does have a rich revenge story and that'll easily carry B-picture like this. Enjoyable hunt.


32. Address Unknown (1944, William Cameron Menzies) - 6/10
--- German family living in the US moves back to Nazi Germany and feel the effects of that "wise" decision. Paul Lukas basically plays a coward who gets what's coming to him. While a little hollow and uneven in the build-up, there are some powerful scenes along the way before a real strong finale! That was such a quality ending, both visually and story wise and it's worth seeing regardless of this not being among the top anti-Nazi movies out there. Touch of brilliance.


33. One Mysterious Night (1944, Budd Boetticher) - 4/10
--- The play between Boston Blackie and the Police got a little too silly, and almost in the way of the actual plot. That did mean a fun entry in the franchise, just not one to take too serious. Only a bit of quick fun.


34. The Falcon in San Francisco (1945, Joseph H. Lewis) - 5/10
--- The 1945 entry of The Falcon series starring Tom Conway. A smooth Tom Conway, who makes a rather tumbling mystery a lot smoother. Involves a child and mysterious people and deaths around her. Not sure the plot made that much sense, but at least it made or a few twists and turns.


35. Confidential Agent (1945, Herman Shumlin) - 7/10
--- While it feels a little wrong with Charles Boyer instead of Bogie with Lauren Bacall, I ended up really appreciating a lot that went on here. I can see people feeling there is a lot of weaknesses with the story, but I for one felt the strong moments outweighed the lesser bits. Boyer a little more vulnerable with a lot of obstacles and a strong woman by his side made for a thrilling scenario. Especially with the creepy and snooping characters that got in his way, like the parts with Peter Lorre & Katina Paxinou. Had me captivated big time!


36. Circumstantial Evidence (1945, John Francis Larkin) - 4/10 - OFFICIAL CHECK (1 list)
--- A nice little story of Circumstantial Evidence (1945), but the turn-around came way too easy considering the stubborn people you had to deal with and it all felt way too convenient to feel rewarding. Plus you had the stupid escape/re-entry scenario to make it even worse. But other than that it was okay.


37. Dangerous Intruder (1945, Vernon Keays) - 3/10
--- It's a PRC release, expectations thereafter. I couldn't get into this one much. I guess some of the interactions with the weirder characters was alright, but to me most of this was dead on arrival.


38. The Man in Half Moon Street (1945, Ralph Murphy) - 4/10
--- This was a story which could have been made a lot more intriguing. Nils Asther and the rest of the crew made it a decent film, but don't go expecting any excitement, even if the plot had suited that a lot better.


39. Boston Blackie Booked on Suspicion (1945, Arthur Dreifuss) - 4/10
--- Another light-hearted entry in the Boston Blackie series. Plenty of fun bits, but not nearly as engaging as some of the earlier films with Chester Morris. But it does seem they are having a real fun time working together.


40. Boston Blackie's Rendezvous (1945, Arthur Dreifuss) - 5/10
--- Strangler Steve Cochran, in one of his earliest movies, made for a lot darker Boston Blackie experience. I guess the blackface made things even darker. Man, that was a thing during the war years. It was one of the go-to gags for so many B-pictures made during those years. More so than in the 30s where is seemed to be more a exclusive thing to do for big stage stars like Al Jolson and Eddie Cantor. Anyway, this had it's fun moments and then it would go completely psycho on us with Cochran.


41. Pillow of Death (1945, Wallace Fox) - 5/10
--- This got good. Lon Chaney Jr. might not have been a traditional Universal monster, but this was haunting, especially with the dead wife speaking.


42. The Great Flamarion (1945, Anthony Mann) - 6/10 - OFFICIAL CHECK (1 list)
--- Erich von Stroheim with a gun. What more do you need to make things scary?


43. Escape in the Fog (1945, Budd Boetticher) - 4/10 - OFFICIAL CHECK (1 list)
--- An alright war-time thriller, but lacked that extra something to make it interesting. Does have it's espionage moments, but apart from brief scenes of action this was missing that thing to make it exciting.


44. Two O'Clock Courage (1945, Anthony Mann) - 5/10 - OFFICIAL CHECK (1 list)
--- Anthony Mann directs what was a very routine B-mystery of those days. Flows as any other movie like this. No extra features or clues to specific skills of Mann. But it's a good one, with Tom Conway being convincing and smooth as any member of that family was. Ann Rutherford was bubbly, perhaps a little too much for the feel of this amnesia plot, but a very typical B-movie dame. And together they find the pieces of this puzzle in a entertaining manner.


45. Cornered (1945, Edward Dmytryk) - 7/10 - OFFICIAL CHECK (1 list)
--- Dick Powell on a Nazi hunt to South America! He's good. The script even better. Thrilling experience which had me at the edge of my seat. I would have preferred a little more climatic finish, but the lead-up had me glued. Ace stuff!


46. Dillinger (1945, Max Nosseck) - 4/10 - OFFICIAL CHECK (1 list)
--- NOT the quintessential biopic on Dillinger (1945).


47. Crime, Inc. (1945, Lew Landers) - 4/10
--- A pretty standard crime affair, but Tom Neal was able to carry minor movies like this.


48. Apology for Murder (1945, Sam Newfield) - 4/10 - OFFICIAL CHECK (1 list)
--- PRC was The Asylum of the old days. And this was their mockbuster of Double Indemnity (1944). Everything Double Indemnity did good, Apology for Murder does bad. Good for a unintentional laugh.


49. Johnny Angel (1945, Edwin L. Marin) - 6/10 - OFFICIAL CHECK (1 list)
--- A good one with George Raft. The product felt a little unfinished, but Marvin Miller was such a wonderful pathetic creature that the this became great anyway!


50. The Power of the Whistler (1945, Lew Landers) - 5/10 - OFFICIAL CHECK (1 list)
--- Amnesia mixed with a little insanity makes this one a interesting one. Doesn't quite climax, but the road to identity was a fine one.

Linda Fiorentino was awesome in this. The film overall felt a bit uneven, some parts building tension well, some failing to do that.

A neo-noir from Mike Figgis. With the Leaving Las Vegas director at the helm, Leibestraum expectedly looks and sounds great, including a couple of effective semi-surreal nightmares (see above). To call the plot of the film a mess would, however, be an understatement. An intriguing precognition angle soon dissolves into the background as the film instead dawdles between a lackluster romance and slow walks of a building to be demolished.

1. T-Men (Mann, 1947)
John Alton's cinematography is brilliant; the smoky interiors and lengthening shadows as people walk from distant bright lights into darkenss is the essence of noir visuals. It's easily the best thing about the film, which isn't to say that the rest of the film is bad, but it's more that the story is a decent undercover cop tale that occasionally tips over into silliness.
6/10

Image

2. Joker [Rewatch] (Phillips, 2019)
Rewatched because my sister and her boyfriend wanted to see it. Seeing it again confirms my feelings that this is a good movie that is a solid mash-up of Scorsese's King of Comedy and Taxi Driver. It seems quite open about it, even casting De Niro as a nod to those films, but it never approaches their heights despite having some powerful scenes. Credit to the production design for such a beautifully grimy evocation of 70s New York filtered through the exaggerated sensibilities of Gotham City.
6/10

Image

3. Too Late for Tears (Haskin, 1949)
The cinematography in this one is unimpressive (it's clearly a lower-budget noir), but has a script filled with great lines and two brilliant performances from Lizabeth Scott and Dan Duryea. Scott's character must be one of the most fatale of femmes in all noir, her greed and evil feeling like it belongs to a more modern film than the code-bound forties.
7/10

Image

4. Mulholland Falls (Tamahori, 1996)
I was looking for a good neo-noir, but this wasn't one. The opening scene features a woman flattened into the ground in the middle of the desert like Wile E. Coyote, with all her bones broken. Coroner says her injuries were caused by a fall but the body wasn't moved. How can the obvious conclusion be anything other than she fell from an aircraft? Yet this is the mystery our hero spends the whole movie trying to solve. A boring waste of an expensive production budget and all-star cast.

51. Voice of the Whistler (1945, William Castle) - 4/10 - OFFICIAL CHECK (1 list)
--- Full of potential, but the way it played out didn't work for me. Used too long creating a friendly tone, only to rush it when it got unfriendly. Was a clever idea, though. Just needed a little more polish in the pacing to put it among the better Whistlers.


52. Hangover Square (1945, John Brahm) - 8/10 - OFFICIAL CHECK (2 lists)
--- The amazing finish of Laird Cregar. He came when the war started and was gone by the time the war ended. He was truly one of the greatest things to happen to Hollywood during those depressing years, and by the time Hangover Square (1945) was released he was already dead. Such a gifted actor and this magnificent performance, movie, murder symphony, was a testament of what energy he brought to the silver screen. Rest in peace big man.


53. Danger Signal (1945, Robert Florey) - 5/10 - OFFICIAL CHECK (1 list)
--- Danger Signal (1945) sure had a great ending, but most of the build-up was a bore. More a psychological drama than anything else. At least it came to something to appreciate.


54. Spellbound (1945, Alfred Hitchcock) - 7/10 - OFFICIAL CHECK (8 lists)
--- Spellbound (1945) is Alfred Hitchcock going to the psychologist. And naturally he'd have a gorgeous doctor to analyse the mind, here in the form of Ingrid Bergman! The subject.... a very young and sensitive Gregory Peck! In many ways he shot Peck more beautiful than he did Bergman! Almost a gender reversal in a traditional sense, even if the war had already changed a lot of those perceptions.

I wouldn't say this was Hitchcock at his sharpest. While a well-toned story, there are times where the pacing is a bit slow. The excitement is mainly psychological, so whenever it got more romantic, there wasn't really that much of interest going on, but you have those very Hitchcock touches. Some of them very gimmicky, like the in-drink shot or the climax gun hand. Seemed he was having some fun in ways to film a lot of the scenes.

The lack of proper bad guys was also noticeable, as we were trying to figure out who Peck was most of the time and he was usually super nice with a few mystical scenes thrown in. But ignoring this being a milder Hitchcock chase, and just going along with the puzzle this was, it was a trip I respected a lot. Respected more than loved.


55. Leave Her to Heaven (1945, John M. Stahl) - 8/10 - OFFICIAL CHECK (9 lists)
--- So cold and warm at the same time. That was such a remarkable feeling. Then again, it was a remarkable movie. Especially with those color combinations and style. Almost like watching a moving painting with a disturbed subject. The subject being Gene Tierney, all in the center of things. Enchanting, would be a understatement.


56. Mildred Pierce (1945, Michael Curtiz) - 8/10 - OFFICIAL CHECK (14 lists)
--- ....if only I had shown this film to my wife when she got pregnant. I lost. Now I just got to wait for my son to turn into Veda. Ah, the joy of constant fear. The film is great, though.


57. Main Street After Dark (1945, Edward L. Cahn) - 3/10
--- Just wasn't feeling genuine. MGM was becoming really sloppy in the 1940s. I know it's just a B-picture, but this was pushing poverty row levels crime flick. Edward Arnold brought some weight to this, but the other were too fresh to have any impact, and this just wasn't a picture which let any of them shine.


58. Strange Illusion (1945, Edgar G. Ulmer) - 4/10 - OFFICIAL CHECK (1 list)
--- We're moving into the end of precode favorite Warren William's career. And he was coming across really washed-up at this point. Nowhere near the energy he had during those naughty years where he would play with the material almost uncontrollably. Here he's just trying to stay alive, say his lines, and then out. More a decent role for Regis Toomey helping young Jimmy Lydon figure out what wrong is happening with these con-men entering their life. This is good for a PRC production, as it's handled by cult director Edgar G. Ulmer, but nowhere near any of the great noir experiences.


59. Pink String and Sealing Wax (1945, Robert Hamer) - 6/10
--- Pink String and Sealing Wax (1945) is a rather simple tale of female manipulation with elaborate costumes and retro look. Set in the 1880s, a family with a strict father tries to find ways to make their own paths in life, which leads to the naive son getting smitten by a married woman, wanting to get rid of her husband. Takes some time before it gets interesting, but when it does, I was thoroughly entertained. It's not the most exciting or dramatic experience, but there is something about the stylish atmosphere and honest characters which lights things up in a positive way.


60. Scarlet Street (1945, Fritz Lang) - 8/10 - OFFICIAL CHECK (9 lists)
--- The whole ending where karma kicks in made the entire experience. Brilliantly laid-out by the great Fritz Lang and his crew. Few could be the sorry old man like Edward G. Robinson, and he plays his tragic character to perfection. Slap-happy Dan Duryea brought the cheapness, and you got to love the deserved abuse he kept rewarding Joan Bennett with! A lovely piece of tragicomic excellence.

This odd British film focuses on a fast-talking female who journalist takes on a group of racketeers. With many memorable and atmospheric shots in low and limited lighting, the project certainly looks as sumptous as the best pictures of the American noir cycle, yet this is closer to His Girl Friday style comedy, with the film never quite getting the serious/funny balance right. I found the plot to be pretty messy too with lots of dull characters.

61. The Phantom of 42nd Street (1945, Albert Herman) - 4/10
--- A low budget murder mystery set in the theater. Routine stuff, with some likable character actors thrown in to make it more fun than it had any right to be. Frank Jenks is valuable in these sort of throw-away pictures and they had the presence of Alan Mowbray to give a feeling of something greater. Even Dave O'Brien managed to look decent in the lead. This was still just another murder mystery there are hundreds of, if not more.


62. The House on 92nd Street (1945, Henry Hathaway) - 6/10 - OFFICIAL CHECK (2 lists)
--- The use of real newsreel footage gave this some authenticity, almost like a quality docu-drama on the hunt for Nazi spies in America. Stars William Eythe, who does a fine job. Weird he didn't become a bigger star. Because this goes about celebrating the methods of FBI a little too much, if comes at the expense of the suspense. Not completely stripped of excitement, though, you get the usual cross-examination a double agent goes through. A quality spy drama which won Oscar for Best Writing, Original Story.


63. The House of Fear (1945, Roy William Neill) - 7/10
--- I love Sherlock Holmes and this was a fun one. Haunting and amusing at the same time as people at castle gets knocked-off one-by-one. Visually excellent, Basil Rathbone & Nigel Bruce are the quintessential Holmes & Watson and they make these murder mysteries snappy. The House of Fear (1945) is like all the rest in their series. Highly entertaining!


64. Fallen Angel (1945, Otto Preminger) - 7/10 - OFFICIAL CHECK (2 lists)
--- Otto Preminger does so much right with Fallen Angel (1945), it's a shame it didn't peak they way it should. Still a killer of a movie! Such self-absorbed characters, burning hardest when Linda Darnell is the desired meat among the wolves. Once the tragedy happens, it loses it's focus, or perhaps changes focus to a more reforming one. And therefore doesn't become the climatic chase it had the potential for. For at that time this movie was a heated canon and instead went a little softer. But every character was genuinely crafted and so superbly captured that this was an enchanting display of Preminger's cinematic eye.


65. The Lost Weekend (1945, Billy Wilder) - 8/10 - OFFICIAL CHECK (16 lists)
--- Alcoholism. Serious subject as we go on a four day bender. Sure, some of this is done in that cartoonish style of old Hollywood, but it gets quite hefty. No doubt these troubles is nothing to take lightly even if they sugarcoat it some. Probable the best I've seen Ray Milland. Didn't expect such a dark cloud hanging over this. Jane Wyman was the ray of sunlight, but there's no hiding that there were more storm clouds in The Lost Weekend (1945). An always relevant movie from Billy Wilder.


66. The Lady Confesses (1945, Sam Newfield) - 4/10 - OFFICIAL CHECK (1 list)
--- Not bad, but it's young basic murder story regardless of PRC and Sam Newfield showing some rare competence making this one. Slow and dark, with characters being effective. Mary Beth Hughes pure face being the attraction.


67. Allotment Wives (1945, William Nigh) - 5/10
--- Monogram showing some muscle making this one. For one, they had Kay Francis under contract. Sure it was towards the end of her career, but she wasn't as washed-up as many other were after the war. And she put on a strong performance here as a ruthless syndicate boss. Her partner in crime was Otto Kruger, and you know that'll work for the bad guy side. Would probable been too much had they added Paul Kelly to that line-up, as he's most effective as a baddie too, but we have him on the good side in this one. The effect, feeling like one was watching a good B-picture from one of the big studios, not poverty row where Monogram mostly dwelled.


68. Dick Tracy (1945, William Berke) - 5/10
--- From the 1930s to the 1950s, the face of Dick Tracy was Ralph Byrd. However Morgan Conway stepped in for a couple of pictures in 1945-46. His career climax, yet he was only serviceable in the role. RKO's first feature in the franchise was a easy fun time. Tight enough action flick of the B-variety with a credible looking villain in former pro-wrestler Mike Mazurki with a lovely scar added on. Exactly what you'd expect from a serial, except they formatted it in form of a hour long feature.


69. Jealousy (1945, Gustav Machatý) - 6/10 - OFFICIAL CHECK (1 list)
--- What many forget is that Gustav Machatý, famous for his Czechoslovakian movies Erotikon (1929) and Ekstase (1933), also worked in Hollywood. Unfortunately he rarely got a gig, which makes Republic Picture's Jealousy (1945) almost remarkable as one of the very few works he actually had control over. This doesn't feel like a American movie at all, as Machatý's European sensitivities shines through almost excessively. I can see it alienating many, but for me it was a nice soft touch to a romantic tragedy. Unique in many ways.


70. The Fatal Witness (1945, Lesley Selander) - 4/10
--- Trying to breakdown a murderer. They go a little too direct at the slimy bastard, and the solution was a little ludicrous. At least they didn't beat around the bush and brought a light thrill.

'Jealousy' looks quite interesting, PUNQ. Nice cast of 'B' stalwarts! I've added it to my 10,000-strong watchlist!

I indeed wasn't aware that Machatý found movie work Stateside.
That's all, folks!

(Screenshots from Winner's compelling 'West 11' with its look at 60s Notting Hill seediness and a youth's recruitment into crime, and from 'Cellat'; a bonkers but enjoyably lurid and noirish rip-off of/homage to the previous year's 'Death Wish')

Oh and this isn't noir so I'm not counting it, but since the classic mystery whodunnit is a kind of thematically noir-adjacent genre, I thought I'd mention it here anyway. I watched Knives Out yesterday and thought it was just great. I definitely recommend it for anyone who's a fan of twisty whodunnit movies like Sleuth and Deathtrap (both of which I also loved).

'Jealousy' looks quite interesting, PUNQ. Nice cast of 'B' stalwarts! I've added it to my 10,000-strong watchlist!

I indeed wasn't aware that Machatý found movie work Stateside.
Even I had forgotten, and I had seen some of the films he'd worked on, though they were mostly uncredited, so he didn't get many real chances in Hollywood. Makes me wonder what he did all those years there. And in a alternative time-line, what he could have accomplished had he come across a produces who'd give him a proper chance.


71. Grissly's Millions (1945, John English) - 4/10 - FIRST CHECK!
--- A silly girl gets in a lot of trouble and the nice investigator helps her out type thing. Cute little murder mystery, but there are too many loose ends to take it too serious. Can't deny it had it's little moments, so a decent watch.


72. Midnight Manhunt (1945, William C. Thomas) - 3/10
--- Felt like a flashback to mystery movies 10-15 years earlier. Rough on all levels. Some potential in the dark, but ultimately there wasn't enough care done to Midnight Manhunt (1945) to make any of it memorable, even with the likable actors in it.


73. Lady on a Train (1945, Charles David) - 7/10 - OFFICIAL CHECK (1 list)
--- Almost like a spoof on a murder mystery which turns into a proper murder mystery. And in the middle we have sweet innocent Deanna Durbin lightly shaking off her baby feathers turning into a adult right in front of our eyes. You had to do it gentle for she was still the young little girl in most of the audience's eyes. But they could fool around like this in comic thrillers like this. Very playful, often silly, and even a little bit creepy. This one got me in a very good mood!


74. Conflict (1945, Curtis Bernhardt) - 7/10 - OFFICIAL CHECK (1 list)
--- Cunning Conflict (1945). Wasn't too thrilled at first, but it was Humphrey Bogart so all was good. Then the psychology and games began, and yeah, absolutely cunning!


75. The Strange Affair of Uncle Harry (1945, Robert Siodmak) - 6/10 - OFFICIAL CHECK (2 lists)
--- The ending is a complete cop-out (I'm sure any of the other five endings they had ready would have felt more natural), but otherwise this is a intriguing incestuous family affair filled with devious manipulation from Geraldine Fitzgerald who was a treasure in that role. A less secure George Sanders was also interesting to see. Ella Raines was the source of sanity in these mind games and you were just happy every time she'd enter a scene. Still, that ending.... clumsy.
