Film Noir Stew; it's what's for Sunday Brunch

"She ain't no queen of Sheba."

"She reminds me of the first woman that ever slapped my face."

"The gun's in my head, that's where it is!"

"equestrian games"


THE BIG SLEEP '46

PHILIP MARLOWE: I collect blondes and bottles, too.


THE LADY FROM SHANGHAI '47

THEY DRIVE BY NIGHT '40
LANA CARLSEN: Your liver must look like a bomb hit it.
ED J. CARLSEN: Well, you know what I say: live and let liver.


SPELLBOUND '45

I haven't watched as many film noirs as I should, but I love 70's Italian Giallos.
