When a service man returns home to find his wife knockin’ tongues with another man, it wasn’t exactly the homecoming he’d hoped for. And when it’s revealed that her drunken carelessness resulted in the death of their infant son, a person could understand if he was more than a little upset with her. Of course, if she were to suddenly turn up dead, that’d make him the prime suspect in her murder. Which she does. And he is. Which is why he’s soon on the run from the law, aided and abetted by the ex of the nightclub owner that was schtuping his wife. E’yup: all of that bourbon-fueled Chandler intrigue, with a whack-a-doodle William Bendix chaser, makes this one go down smooth.

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.
