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.
