It's not bad when you consider the accessibility issues of quite a few of them - Moontide didn't get a DVD release till after it was in my list (no connection I'm sure ) , Reckless Moment and Odds Against Tomorrow have only recently had releases too. Most of the rest haven't, I don't think - maybe The Unsuspected?


Its been like 5 years since the review, so its not too surprising

That's quite an interesting question. He might be, you know.

Up next - a film starring a woman who will appear twice in this list. She made her name in a film from the same genre the director of this next film is best known for.

For some reason I keep thinking of GIlda, even though I know this a) doesn't fit the clue and b) I don't see getting anywhere near this list (even though I think its a little harshly treated, even I'll agree its nowhere near that good). So after that I draw a blank, unless a sweater girl has anything to do with this. But again, I don't really think you rate the movie I'm thinking of there.

Damn straight - I'm really not a fan. And sorry - looks like I've come up with a better clue this time. But it is a perfect fit to the film.

There is also a link to another higher entry that I may have referred to as the best shot film in noir.

Clicky and scroll



The film the lady is involved in in the director's best-known genre, is one of the best known and loved in that genre, kicking off the career of a major star.

Sorry, keep in mind I've been up all night and that was an off-the-cuff guess.

And that post was from 18 months ago.

I'm banning the next person who makes Snoopy cry. So you can't say you haven't been warned.

Honestly - you finish one tiny little list

I didn't mean it as a tease, it was honest shock.  I'm really bewildered as to who this could be. I'm jumping to Gloria Grahame now, because of It's a Wonderful Life, but I don't really connect Fritz Lang or Nic Ray with that genre.  Unless it is In a Lonely Place and you're counting Ray as a melodrama director.

'fraid In A Lonely Place was one I knocked out before the list started.

I can say you haven't guessed the other genre though - and in the 'best of' lists from that other genre you'll never not see this director turn up with at least a couple of entries.

The best known director in that other genre directed the female star's film.

Blasphemy.

So wait, the star in this next film had her big break in another genre and it's the same genre that the director of the film is one of the most famous names in?  But what happened to the brew that is true?

It's in the chalice from the palace. Or possibly the vessel with the pestle. And there's a flagon in there somewhere as well I think.

Yay!! She was one of the first names I thought of because of one film I know is certain to be in the list. But I was going for the most obvious choice of second film and I couldn't make the director match up.

You are indeed correct re the one film that is certain to be on the list.

On current form, that'll be sometime during the next Olymipcs.

Pleasure - glad you liked it so much. Maureen Stapleton said: "I only went out to Hollywood in the first place because I wanted to fuck Joel McCrea", or similar. She dedicated her Oscar for Reds to him (cut to Warren Beatty in the audience, mouthing "Joel McCrea?" in disbelief).


How did I miss this piece of trivia? Absolute genius!

Great write-up of The Sound of Fury (my delay in commenting can be explained by the fact I couldn't read it very subtly at work, as it has the largest pictures I have ever seen ). I have to see this film, though I sort of feel that I already have thanks to the brilliant writing ("this is another noir that spits on the ideal of the American dream", "the quiet desperation of poverty forms the core of this film", "the riot scenes and the attack on the jail are astonishing pieces of film-making that drive the adrenaline of the viewer through the roof" etc etc). This is such a good thread. Well done. Carry on.

Thank you  I can't rave enough about the final half hour of the film, genuinely. Particularly the documentary-realist type approach to most of the external shots and the internal riot - not only does it make Bridges performance even more amazing, but you're so far off the edge of your seat your bum hits the floor.

And I'm really really sorry about the pics! When I've got a moment I'll reupload and resize them - I'm not sure what happened this time as forum size should be my default setting.
