|An astute detective discovers a dead girl is not really dead.|
|Someone wanted her dead.|
|It's not always the boyfriend.|
A timeless classic that holds up to repeated viewing.
|"Get out the fire hose."|
|The splendor of Technicolor.|
|Joseph Cotten breaks records.|
|Murder plot in progress.|
Feels a bit like a Hitchcock flick. Lots of beautiful scenery in this one.
To Die For (1995)
|A seemingly happy couple.|
|Manipulating awkward teens.|
|Embarrassing dance moves.|
|Ambitious weather reporter.|
I'm not sure why I chose to watch this. I think I was inspired to revisit the 1990s. Somewhat entertaining but I wouldn't watch it again.
Hangover Square (1945)
|Clever victim disposal.|
|The show must go on.|
|Playing the concerto to the end.|
Is this a real thing that discordant sounds can induce one to murder? Fortunately, the musical accompaniment was delightful.
Where the Sidewalk Ends (1950)
|Pummeling a mug.|
|Tierney on display.|
|Blamed for his crime.|
|Trying to right a wrong.|
Raise your hand if you didn't want him to admit to the murder. Does that make us bad?
Where Danger Lives (1950)
|Finding love in the OR.|
|A suicide case becomes a catch.|
|Discovering a lie.|
|Manipulating a brain injury.|
|Pistol packing mama.|
Lesson learned. Don't pick up suicidal ladies in the OR and not expect them to be mentally unbalanced.
|Call girl in the 70s.|
|Hooking up with a person of interest.|
Watched this to see Fonda and Sutherland. Wasn't enthralled by the story or action.
|Hit and run.|
|Revenge plot foiled.|
This is an awesome release from Flicker Alley and is a terrific movie. The way it unfolds is spectacular. I will watch it again with commentary.
Midnight (Call it Murder) (1934)
|Sentenced to death.|
|Going to Chicago on business.|
|Witnesses to the execution.|
|Witnessing an execution.|
|She didn't know what she was doing.|
Part of a compilation of movies from Poverty Row on a recent release from Flicker Alley. Scenes with the condemned murderer before her execution recall to mind The Sin of Nora Moran. Fun to see a very young Bogart, and interesting juxtaposition of scenes.
Back Page (1934)
|Wish movies still introduced characters at the start.|
|He will always be Winnie the Pooh to me.|
|Evidence it's pre-code.|
|She's a master of the steaks while he can't open a can of peas.|
|Who woulda thought a woman could do a man's job?|
|Meeting the relatives.|
|Tough lady working the angles.|
|Who holds the power now?|
|Stop the presses.|
|Now that she's made it on her own, she may decide to marry.|
Here's another Poverty Row film from Flicker Alley. Feminist pre-codes are my favorite. Don't underrate this movie. It's an interesting depression era story. I've heard a few snippets from the commentary and look forward to hearing it in its entirety.
