Bogie Does Noir

Sorry, I just moved and I've been totally out of touch. My apologies.

Latest Noir:

Deadline at Dawn (1946) A dance hall girl tries to help a sailor on leave out of a murder wrap. I really liked it. Many thanks to Michael Mills' Classic Movie Palace for the poster.












Upcoming Film Noir on TV:

As always, Turner Classic Movies shows "Darkness After Dawn" on Saturdays mornings at 10am, and the Mystery Channel has a noir every Monday night at 8pm.


Human Desire (1954) I haven't seen this one, but it has Glenn Ford and Gloria Grahame and it was directed by Fritz Lang. It's on at 8:00PM on Monday, August 20th on the Mystery Channel.
