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.

And here’s another oddly mismatched double-feature from 1960 courtesy of Allied Artists. First up, a look at racial injustice, where a fair-skinned African American manages to pass herself off as Caucasian and marries into a rich family. Keeping her secret was hard enough, but when she becomes pregnant she fears the truth will finally come out when the baby does the same. Next, we chuck the social commentary right out the window as we head under the arctic ice with the crew of the Tiger Shark, to battle some mono-optical blob aliens and their deadly UFO in an absolute hair-brained gonzoidal classic.
