Apologies to one and all for the near extinction-level-lack of content at The Morgue lately. But between the annual September Sabbatical and the massive Hubrisween Review Marathon at the Brewery there just wasn’t time. Hopefully, that’ll change now that we’re moving on to November. Regardless, have a Happy Hallowe’en, Boils and Ghouls and as my treat to you, a wonderful set of ads that I’ve been sitting on for almost two whole years!

FTLOF - Film Noir 01Reduced Size with Titles

This post is part of my rehash and continuation of the For the Love of Film Noir Blogathon originally held back in February of 2011. Thus and so, we will be heading down the rain-soaked streets and neon-drenched back alleys of Noirville again for the entire month of March. And along with all the old material migrating over from the old site, we’ll also be scattering around a lot of new stuff as well. Also of note, we’ll be posting them in chronological order to show how the genre evolved and progressed from the 1940′s through the late ’50s. And as an added bonus, I’ll be posting some vintage adverts to stuff I’ve always associated with the genre — cigarettes, booze and fashionable ladies.

The Suspect (1944) Universal Pictures / EP: Howard Benedict / P: Islin Auster / D: Robert Siodmak / W: Bertram Millhauser, Arthur T. Horman, James Ronald (novel) / C: Paul Ivano / E: Arthur Hilton / S: Charles Laughton, Ella Raines, Dean Harens, Stanley Ridges, Rosalind Ivan, Henry Daniell, Molly Lamont Molly Lamont
