  2. I'm seldom able to take the time to watch, but today I did. Was dark, gritty, and I love the way the old movies had a kind of moral center. You did wrong and you paid the price. Thanks!! Was fun! :)

    1. I like the "noir" films. No "happily ever after" "sweetness and light" for them. Those evil influences just take them down.
