After serving as dialogue director on a couple of films, William Castle slid into the director’s chair in 1943, working in Columbia’s B-Picture unit, where he directed about half of the serial adventures of The Whistler (Richard Dix) and The Crime Doctor (Warner Baxter).

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 Chase (1946) Nero Films :: United Artists / P: Seymour Nebenzal / AP: Eugene Frenke / D: Arthur Ripley / W: Philip Yordan, Cornell Woolrich (novel) / C: Franz Planer / E: Edward Mann / M: Michel Michelet / S: Robert Cummings, Michèle Morgan, Steve Cochran, Lloyd Corrigan, Jack Holt, Peter Lorre
