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.

“Do you really believe in the perfect murder?”

“Yes, absolutely. On paper, that is. And I think I could plan
one better than most people; but I doubt if I could carry it out.”

“Oh? Why not?”

“Well, because in stories things usually turn out the way
the author wants them to; and in real life they always don’t…”

“This is awful — it’s like something out of a bad dream.
All these people here, isn’t there anyone we can trust?”

“Sure. All of them. But which one?”
