Film Noir - Collection:
Taken from Ernest Hemingway's tale The Killers features Ava Gardner and Burt Lancaster, in his screen debut.
One of the finest films the noir genre has to offer. Double Indemnity has a bona fide Hollywood cast: Fred MacMurray is the insurance salesman led astray by Barbara Stanwyck's definitive femme fatale, Edward G Robinson investigates them.
The Big Steal:
Robert Mitchum is reunited with Jane Greer After Out Of The Past, alongside noir stalwart William Bendix. Noir elements are blended with caper and heist, on the trail of a $300, 000 booty.
The movie that supposedly set in Washington on to liberal Hollywood, ending with the anti-communist McCarthy witchunt, Noir stalwarts Gloria Graheme and Robert Mitchum star.
Out Of The Past:
Made a star of Robert Mitchum, playing a private eye mixed up with a dangerous woman and some even more dangerous gangsters.
The Blue Dahlia:
Raymond Chandler's one and only screenplay (nominated for an Oscar). Alan Ladd and Veronica Lake are the leads: He is the returning GI who may or may not have been framed for a murder, she is the femme fatale aiding him.
The Glass Key:
The masterful adaptation of Dasheil Hammett's tale of intrigue see Alan Ladd and Veronica Lake positively smouldering as a henchman and politician's daughter drawn to each other.
This Gun For Hire:
An early example of the noir genre and the first time pairing of Veronica Lake and Alan Ladd, here making his screen debut. Based on a Graham Green novel.
Murder, My Sweet:
This Raymond Chandler adaptation positively crackles. Dick Powell's turn as Chandler's definitive noir private eye, Philip Marlowe, is rated as being as good as Bogart's take on the detective. Directed by Edward Dmytrck (Crossfire).
