After churning out a quartet of successful teenage-angst-fueled monster bops for American International, producer Herman Cohen pulled up stakes and moved to England to work for Anglo-Amalgamated. And after the financial success of Horrors of the Black Museum, Cohen was given free rein for a follow up and returned to his roots, meaning a gorilla would definitely be involved — this one, his biggest yet. As for our second feature, we have Edward G. Ulmer’s tell don’t show because we can’t afford anything take on the future, where an out of time test-pilot is the last fertile man on Earth and is charged with repopulating the planet. Could be worse gigs, I guess.

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.
