FilmsNoir.Net will be in recess for a couple of weeks. Meantime here is a list of camp b-noirs to watch while I am away:
The Chase (1946) Insane hoods pursue shell-shocked vet. Totally surreal obscure noir melodrama (?) like no other movie you have ever seen.
I Love Trouble (1948) Hot-jive noir. Laughs and smooth-as-nylons repartee, while guys get slapped hard, drugged, and slugged from behind.
I Married a Communist (1949) Commies as hoods. Never flags. Erotic fission and violent noir pyrotechnics make for enthralling & wild ride.
Shock (1946) Perverse b-noir. Murder witness goes catatonic. Her shrink is the killer. A dark Lynn Bari smolders. Enticingly preposterous!
Strange Illusion (1945) Bizarre Hamlet remake. Edgar Ulmer turns PRC b into camp expressionist noir of foul villains with a knockout finale.
The Unsuspected (1947) Camp noir! Curtiz directs, Woody Bredell lenses, Waxman scores, Claude Rains over-acts, and Audrey Totter is a hoot!
Woman on the Run (1950) Intelligent b-thriller set on the streets, tenements, dives, and wharves of Frisco, with a roller-coaster climax.
