I guess a little less shame was needed to do it?

While I was out today I saw a pic of an actor from the Golden Oldies era with dark hair and a mustache and I know that's not much to go on, but I've ruled out the following:

Robert Taylor
Robert Donat
Robert Ryan
Ray Milland
Tyrone Power

I've got a bet going with a friend who insists it's Robert Taylor, but I know it isn't

Any help with this would be appreciated and thanks in advance

I'm sure it wasn't a woman or a dog, Harry

This is bloody frustrating, I bet I remember at 3am or something.

We're ruling out Clark Gable to?

Can I ask where you saw the pic?

Yep, it wasn't Clark Gable or Robert Mitchum.  Neither was it Gregory Peck or Cary Grant

I saw it on the wall at Frankie and Benny's at Brighton Marina.

Nope, sorry.  It's not anyone as well known as him.

Thanks though.

This is getting more embarrassing as it's none of the pics posted so far so I wouldn't blame you all if you thought 'Sod it' and gave up

Thanks for the help though, I appreciate it.

Is Le Samourai availible on region 2, just so I don't have to go all over the different dvd sites and get a no.
If it is availible please point me in the direction were I may find it thank you

I think its one of the Melville films which havent got a re-release yet in region 2.You might be lucky and find an old region 2 dvd second hand somewhere, but thats probably the best your going to get other than going for a region 1 release. For some reason it was left out of the Melville boxset as well.

Right - given I have a whole university library at my disposal, and I have two weeks in a couple of months in which I'm doing nothing except help a show with their sound, I'm aiming to do some viewing of classic (pre-1960s, I guess) noirs, among other films. What noirs should I run with?

Of note, I have seen the following - Laura (love it to bits); The Big Sleep (the 194Iforgetthepreciseyear one, great, but not a patch on the novella); Out of the Past (excellent stuff); The Maltese Falcon (good, but not the film it was made out to be); Touch of Evil (see Falcon - I hate Charlton Heston so much in this); and Double Indemnity (fantastic film). Where should I go from here?

If you can get hold of them, Moonrise, Cry Danger, Murder, My SweetPitfall and Gun Crazy (which is really a post-noir entry) are all compulsive viewing. The middle three star Dick Powell. I really like Fallen Angel too, but no-one else on here seems to. It's shot like a dream and there's some good dialogue. Some other good ones are: Detour, The Glass Key, Stranger on the Third Floor (embryonic but stunning), The Killers, Ace in the Hole, Criss Cross, The Set-Up and The Sweet Smell of Success. Mitchum's many ventures into the genre are a real mixed bag. I'm not sure Night of the Hunter is really a noir at all, but watch that as well.

I've PMd cause my list is, of course, top secret (and will be finished yet!)

I'd include Night of the Hunter, myself.

There's a four disc boxed set - Universal Film Noir - available here, which is well worth getting hold of.
The four films were actually made by Paramount, but Universal now have the rights to them.
The Big Clock (1948). Dir: John Farrow, Starring Ray Milland, Charles Laughton, Maureen O'Sullivan, George Macready and Elsa Lanchester (She's hysterically funny.)
This Gun For Hire (1942) Dir: Frank Tuttle, Starring Alan Ladd, Veronica Lake, Robert Preston, Laird Cregar and Tully Marshall.
The Glass Key (1942) Dir: Stuart Heisler, Starring Brian Donlevy, Alan Ladd, Veronica Lake, Joseph Calleia and William Bendix.
The Blue Dahlia (1946) Dir: George Marshall, Starring Alan Ladd, Veronica Lake, William Bendix and Howard daSilva.

Ok, so I joined Empire purely to ask you buffs for your help. Google hasn't yielded any answers and I'm desperate to track this film down.
Basically (and please don't judge!) I watched a channel 4 countdown of top 100 tearjerkers or some similar banal title. Amongst them was a pretty old film which really caught my attention, but I don't know the name or anything.
Basically it showed a clip in which a woman who had broken up with her lover phones him, and gives a heartbreaking speech about not being able to cope, because a girl should talk to her best friend about such things, but he was her best friend and she's lost without him ect ect.
Anyway, I know this is a terrible description but it's honestly all I know about it, and I'd love to watch it. Any help would seriously be appreciated!
