This looks great, there are some excellent bursts of swelling music and there is a lot of interest to the plot between a mysterious sexually transmitted disease/vaccine, the murder/suicide and the central heist. As such, it is disappointing that this is less about any of these aspects and almost entirely about Juliette Binoche and Denis Lavant falling in love. Lavant performs great magic tricks though (see above) and ventriloquism acts, which are fun to watch.

34. House of Strangers (1949) - After being thoroughly underwhelmed by director Joseph Mankiewicz's previous noir outing, I decided to give this another watch. I still don't necessarily consider this to be a great entry into the genre, but ultimately it's more well rounded and satisfying of his two noirs I've watched for this challenge.

While Val Kilmer gets top billing, this film totally revolves around Joanne Whalley as his double-crossing client. With her doe eyes and girlish looks, Whalley is very effectively cast; for a femme fatale she always looks incredibly innocent - so much so that one can almost suspend disbelief at how easily all men allow themselves to be fooled by her. Almost. The ending feels a bit rushed too. Great (partial) desert setting though and Whalley is in really fine form.

George Raft is his usual self and Lynn Bari shows that she had what it takes to be a bigger star, but this is another B noir that should have realized that if you want to do a murder mystery, you need to make the cast a little bigger so that you can have more suspects.

34. The Apartment (1996) * 117 min.
A fairly simple story obscured by an overly complex structure, with so many flashbacks by so many characters that it becomes hard to keep track of who's point of view, and when, you're seeing. Two common noir elements, stupid choices and betrayals, are very much present, although it is a bit light on crime.

35. The Shanghai Gesture (1941) 99 min. #Gene Tierney
I first saw this many years ago, and I appreciated Gene Tierney's beauty, but I guess I didn't realize what a really strange movie it is.

36. Born to Be Bad (1950) * 90 min.
The beginning really should have been reworked, since Joan Fontaine clearly seems older than Joan Leslie (as she was), so the boss' niece coming to the big city for business school opening seems far-fetched, requiring an actress at least 10 years younger. Leslie, Robert Ryan and Mel Ferrer are all excellent, but Fontaine's character usually seems to be overplaying her hand, leaving Zachary Scott's millionaire repeatedly looking like a clueless chump.

(Screenshots from 'They Won't Believe Me', 'No me quieras tanto...', 'Nino' and 'Redenção')

Image

16. O.S.S. (1946, Irving Pichel) - 5.5 or 6/10
(war noir in France with saboteurs Ladd and Fitzgerald staying remarkably well-dressed throughout)
17. They Won't Believe Me (1947, Irving Pichel) - 8 or 8.5/10
(rewatched after nearly 15 years; the philandering husband and the spiral of deception had me enthralled; I particularly appreciated the wife angle this time)
18. No me quieras tanto... / Don't Love Me So Much (1949, Chano Urueta) - 8/10
(Uncompromising Mexican gangland noir; the cabaret club and the musical numbers hide the flexing of authority that threatens to burst into violence. The power dynamic makes this darkly compelling. Martha Roth and David Silva continue to impress me.)
19. Captura recomendada / Recommended Capture (1950, Don Napy) - 8 or 8.5/10
(A tripartite dive into vice and crime and the police efforts to crack down. There is a rough vividness and a sense of location here (bars, poker tables, clubs, streets) that impressed me. Manrupe & Portela in their Un diccionario de films argentinos (1930-1995) had this to say: "with a cast of radio extraction and leaving aside their tone of apology for the institution, one of the summits of police journalistic cinema. The three episodes, filmed outdoors and well told, convey a verismo close to American patterns. The last one includes one of the best hunts of the decade and the "death" of Ricardo Trigo is emotional and cinematically unforgettable.'')
20. Quicksand (1950, Irving Pichel) - 6.5 or 7/10
21. The Racket (1951, John Cromwell) - 7.5/10
(Gang boss Ryan and crusading cop Mitchum make this fun; I'm looking forward to the '28 silent.)
22. Dial 999 (1955, Montgomery Tully) - 5.5 or 6/10
(British wife helping her no-good American husband escape to the coast; it mustn't have done much for diplomatic relations; Mona Freeman's wife is quite fun as she confounds the police; the ending carries some shock value.)
23. Je plaide non coupable / Guilty? (1956, Edmond T. Gréville) - 7.5/10
(I assume that there is a French-language version, but I saw the English-language release. It's almost as though there are two films in one that have been edited together (courtroom drama and rural French investigative thriller) and that slight jumbling stops me from being even more enthusiastic. I loved the rustic French scenes as the lawyer roots around in his client's wartime past. The cuts back and forth add an interesting cinematic sense of time and suspenseful uncertainty to the drier legalistic proceedings that his discoveries will inform. Imperfectly assembled, but fascinating and picturesque.)
24. Nino (1959, Leo Esakia) - 6/10
(Georgian family noir, of a professor led astray from his wife and children by an appealing woman; quite watchable and I liked the apartment setting from which the various lives develop.)
25. Redenção / Redemption (1959, Roberto Pires) - 6.5/10
(Bahia-set Brazilian noir; I liked the genre sensibilities of Pires as he unfolds his dreamy crime flick next to the beach and tropical trees; the cars, the killing, the mystery suitcase, the interactions of the protagonists, the use of night-time all made me think of American B films. Eager to see more from this director.)

Image

Image


I also saw Yuval Adler's 'The Secrets We Keep' (2020), but I don't think I really see it as a noir. I rated it a 4.5/10 and found it rather an off-putting and exploitative post-war morality tale of buried trauma and pasts colliding amid the new promise of the American Dream. I liked the setting and the mood to an extent but the progressions and flashbacks weren't intriguing or subtle.
That's all, folks!

While the central heist here is excellently filmed and thrilling (see above) as things do not go to plan, it takes a long time for the film to get there with the entire first hour dedicated to character drama. Joseph Gordon-Levitt does well and Jeff Daniels steals his every scene as his smooth-talking blind mentor/friend, but there is much repetition. The final half-hour though is certainly very strong - not just the heist, but the aftermath is also well done.

61. The File on Thelma Jordon (1949, Robert Siodmak) - 6/10
--- There she goes destroying yet another man's life. Typical Barbara Stanwyck. Shares the manipulative nature of Double Indemnity (1944), but the story is different, and honestly a little more tame. Stanwyck is a natural at this type of thing and was great. Was also interesting to see how well Wendell Corey took to the role. Not exactly your typical leading guy, but he worked perfectly as the stiffy getting played. So the acting was top notch. It was more the writing that didn't get the excitement and drama across to full effect.


62. The Interrupted Journey (1949, Daniel Birt) - 5/10
--- Richard Todd in his breakthrough year does not do it for me. There was some hints of mystery going on, but it doesn't play-out in memorable way, so a very average thrill.


63. The Lady Gambles (1949, Michael Gordon) - 5/10
--- At least she gets punched in the face in this one, but for a Barbara Stanwyck vehicle, it struggled to excite. Only short bursts of that destructional behavior. So much of this felt like the selling point was the romance. I wasn't very interested in that.


64. The Man on the Eiffel Tower (1949, Burgess Meredith, Irving Allen & Charles Laughton) - 7/10
--- The Man on the Eiffel Tower (1949) is one you either love or hate. I'm in camp love. How can I not when it all goes down in City of Love, Paris! Okay, that's not why, but more that it is a product of fun. And it's like that because the stars basically fired the producer/director to direct themselves playing detective around Paris! And when it's Charles Laughton being the world famous detective Maigret and Franchot Tone portraying a nearly cartoonish villain, with Burgess Meredith as the weird man in the middle, I was going to have a good time as well. I won't deny the production was uneven because of this, and if you're not invested in those involved, you'll struggle to have as good time as I did. But if you take it for what it is, love those involved, you'll see how entertaining this whole debacle really is!


65. The Reckless Moment (1949, Max Ophüls) - 6/10
--- I kinda wish there was more to the story, for what was going on was thrilling. Joan Bennett was great, while James Mason was probable a little complicated to wrap my head around with the limited screen time he got and the way he shifted his focus. Felt Max Ophüls was stumbling a little bit compared to his usual care and attention to detail, but there's still a lot where you see his excellence.


66. The Red Menace (1949, R.G. Springsteen) - 4/10
--- This communist propaganda scare was scary, but for all the wrong reasons.


67. The Rocking Horse Winner (1949, Anthony Pelissier) - 5/10
--- Has real magic when the kid's rocking that rocking horse, but it's stale otherwise. And they did that bit over and over beating a dead horse in this one-trick pony.


68. The Set-Up (1949, Robert Wise) - 8/10
--- The Set-Up (1949) was wonderful! Such a close and intimate look at a evening of a boxer. Shot in the most filthy and raw way possible, while keeping with the simplest of narratives one could imagine for a boxing event. Superb job by Robert Wise and heartfelt performances by Robert Ryan & Audrey Totter delivering the punch to this story.


69. The Small Back Room (1949, Michael Powell & Emeric Pressburger) - 7/10
--- David Farrar as the alcoholic bomberman was a excellent. Got to be the best I've seen him! While is does feel like a smaller Michael Powell/Emeric Pressburger film, these two were masters at their craft, so The Small Back Room (1949) is a great movie with a lot of going on within it's bomb squad dynamic and troubled mind of the lead.


70. The Spider and the Fly (1949, Robert Hamer) - 5/10
--- The Spider and the Fly (1949) is fairly slick, but little sticks out to make it a great cat and mouse, or rather, spider and fly game. Does bring enough intrigue to be a entertaining watch at least.


71. The Story of Molly X (1949, Crane Wilbur) - 4/10
--- For a female with crime in her heart, The Story of Molly X (1949) was too tame for me. Almost too sweet in it's tragic nature. You have to look too deep to connect with what's going on.


72. The Undercover Man (1949, Joseph H. Lewis) - 6/10
--- Glenn Ford was almost too likable as a Treasury Department agent. But it made the film likable too. Could have used a little more excitement thrown in, but as I said.... likable.


73. The Window (1949, Ted Tetzlaff) - 7/10
--- Sucks being a kid, don't it? Bobby Driscoll certainly got his share of trouble. Classic "Wolf! Wolf!" story of a lying boy witnessing a murder and nobody believing he did except the murderers. Great fun and a strong feeling of danger. Really delightful "children's adventure" with a adult feel.


74. Thieves' Highway (1949, Jules Dassin) - 8/10
--- Didn't know apples was such serious business! Here Lee J. Cobb operates like a fruit and vegetable mob boss and Richard Conte is out to get revenge on him for crippling his father. And it's weirdly compelling. Even the love triangle serves a strong purpose, and the cinematography was amazing at times. The visuals of thousands of apples spread-out was surprisingly expressive! Especially with a exploding truck nearby. I'm still baffled at how much excitement Jules Dassin got out of a green grocers story.


75. Too Late for Tears (1949, Byron Haskin) - 6/10
--- Lizabeth Scott as a bad bad lady. That had a lot of appeal, though i didn't feel any of the other involved enhanced the thrill of her bad ways, so some of this felt flat within its noir philosophy. So be sure to love Scott before you venture into this one. Or perhaps learn to love her because of Too Late for Tears (1949).

38. The Threat (1949) * 66 min.
An escaped convict is determined to get revenge on the detective who arrested him and the D.A. who obtained his conviction in a fast-paced, excellent B noir. Ruthless gangster Charles McGraw steals the movie from tough, likable cop Michael O'Shea

39. Hidden Fear (1957) * 84 min.
John Payne plays an American cop who goes to Denmark to help his sister who has been accused of murder. He becomes entwined with a gang involved in counterfeiting. Too little plot is compensated for by a lot of running around, with only the broadest outline of what is going on and who is involved offered, although the many Copenhagen street scenes provide novelty.

Still as effective a film as ever with Tarantino striking a perfect balance between sobering drama and dark comedy. There are several laugh-out-loud moments throughout (most notably the car shooting) but it is as a fable about fate and chance that the film resonates strongest. Also quite remarkable is how amazingly the film succeeds in transferring audience sympathies since this is actually just as much a Bruce Willis film as it is a John Travolta film.

64. The Man on the Eiffel Tower (1949, Burgess Meredith, Irving Allen & Charles Laughton) - 7/10
--- The Man on the Eiffel Tower (1949) is one you either love or hate. I'm in camp love. How can I not when it all goes down in City of Love, Paris! Okay, that's not why, but more that it is a product of fun. And it's like that because the stars basically fired the producer/director to direct themselves playing detective around Paris! And when it's Charles Laughton being the world famous detective Maigret and Franchot Tone portraying a nearly cartoonish villain, with Burgess Meredith as the weird man in the middle, I was going to have a good time as well. I won't deny the production was uneven because of this, and if you're not invested in those involved, you'll struggle to have as good time as I did. But if you take it for what it is, love those involved, you'll see how entertaining this whole debacle really is!
This was basically the same thought I had about it when I watched it earlier this month. The actors definitely seemed to be having fun with it even though the whole movie was kind of a big bowl of gibberish.

40. Roadblock (1951) * 73 min.
An insurance company detective (Charles McGraw) becomes involved in a robbery for the sake of his beautiful new wife with a shady past (Joan Dixon). McGraw delivers the goods as usual, Dixon is stunningly beautiful, and the script has a few nice touches, especially the opening scene and the closing chase.

36. Kiss Tomorrow Goodbye (1950) - Re-watch - improved a decent amount. James Cagney could pretty much play this type of role in his sleep, but he's got such a captivating, magnetic presence that it's easy to understand why he got typecast throughout his career.

Not just a film about Charles Bronson stopping street crime by force, but also a film about his gradual shift from pacifism to activism after suffering personal tragedy, this is every bit as interesting upon second glance. The film does, however, straddle a fine ethical/moral line as the way Bronson entraps and entices most of his would-be muggers is iffy. Also disappointing upon revision is how much time is spent away from Bronson during the second half.

12. 5 Against the House (1955, Phil Karlson): 7.0 - After being witness to failed robbery attempt at a casino a group of students decide to take up the challenge to rob this casino, that can't be robbed. While the heist and the last half hour is pretty good. The film is dragged down by the uninteresting group of protagonists. Firstly they are all clearly way too old to be students, even if for some this is explained by them being Korean veterans. Secondly while as group they do convey a fun sense of friendship, individually they are rather bland or just plain annoying, the later mostly goes for Alvy Moore who plays the comic sidekick of the group. Only Brian Keith's character becomes interesting, since his development drives the story.

13. Tight Spot (1955, Phil Karlson): 5.2 - Ginger Rogers plays a female inmate who's taken to a hotel room by prosecutors who try to convince her to witness against a big mob boss. Based on a play this movie almost entirely plays out in that hotel room making it already not the most dynamic of noirs. But it's even further dragged down by Ginger Rogers. While not the most obvious choice for a noir lead, I don't think it's primary that Rogers is miscast, cause I've seen her convincing in not comic roles. The problem is she plays her character as a comic character, constantly cracking wise like she is in a screwball comedy. Which clashes with the darker noir elements of this.
