b movies

friday and sunday james’ and i went to double features at the film forum.
they are showing film noir for a few weeks. we saw

GUN CRAZY
(1949, JOSEPH H. LEWIS) A bank robbery shot from inside the getaway car in a single take highlights Lewis’ startling Bonnie & Clyde-type sleeper, as vicious carny girl Peggy Cummins leads good-hearted gun buff John Dall into a life of crime. (approximately 86 minutes)
“The real Bonnie and Clyde, Lewis’s study in pathology is the ultimate expression of the B-movie credo to live fast, die young, and leave a good-looking corpse. Brisk, percussive, a veritable primer for intelligent camera placement and a film of great plastic beauty besides, Gun Crazy is the kind of movie they don’t make any more—and it’s as if they never did.”
– J. Hoberman, The Village Voice

THE BIG COMBO
(1955, JOSEPH H. LEWIS) Cop Cornel Wilde teams with an ex-moll to nail mob boss Richard Conte, whose disciplinary methods include torture by hearing aid — a vintage Lewis touch. (approximately 89 minutes)
“A sense of fatalism and perverse sexuality that exist in few noir films.”
– Carl Macek.
and last night with anthony and erika….
DETOUR
(1945, EDGAR G. ULMER) “Whichever way you turn, Fate sticks out a foot to trip you.” New York-to-L.A. hitchhiker Tom Neal’s pickup of the aptly-named Ann Savage leads to blackmail and death. (approximately 67 minutes)
“A nasty little thriller.” – Time Out New York
“One of the defining films of the seductive genre the French critics called film noir.”
– Vincent Canby, New York Times.

THE NARROW MARGIN
(1952, RICHARD FLEISCHER) Train ride from Hell, as taunting prize witness (Marie Windsor as a side-switching gangster’s widow) makes things rough for ambivalent dick Charles McGraw, as he fends off non-stop hoods en route to a grand jury. By the author of Detour. (approximately 71 minutes)
^okay so frasier’s dad wasnt in the movie.)
and james and i watched a great classic 1971 film this weekend too…
psychomania. i had seen it before but who doesnt love a british motorcycle gangs attempt at living forever as the undead? good stuff. and i think i am going to try to get abby’s hairstyle from the living dead.

Podcast

Hey its James not Steph. I wanted to let everyone know about our new podcast.

http://www.tichenortunes.jamestichenor.net

Its the reason for some recent changes on the blog, that is moving fom Blogger to WordPress.. but in the end i used the apple software to make the podcast cause some parts of it were easier and such…
So the podcast is on a seperate page. But you can subscribe to it and have it in your iTunes and it will automatically update when we update it.. So that is what you should do. Anyway im sure steph will tell you about this soonish anyway..
