As the 1940’s rolled into the 1950’s, The Island Theater, a much smaller venue than the Grand and Capitol show palaces, became an exclusively second run outfit, a grindhouse in the truest sense, where the turnover was an exhausting two day whirlwind of interchangeable flicks, leading to some outstanding ad combinations and campaigns that needed a proper category to show them off properly. And so, here ya go.

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 Postman Always Rings Twice (1946) Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer (MGM) / P: Carey Wilson / D: Tay Garnett / W: Harry Ruskin, Niven Busch, James M. Cain (novel) / C: Sidney Wagner / E: George White / M: George Bassman / S: Lana Turner, John Garfield, Cecil Kellaway, Hume Cronyn, Leon Ames, Audrey Totter
