Thanks for the heads up Frankie!
The Bodyguard (1948) is not a bad little RKO B-picture, with Lawrence Tierney
Chicago Calling (1952) Dan Duryea wants his phone turned back on, or something like that, can't completly remember. Somewhat norish, but more of a drama.
Twenty Plus Two (1961) never heard of it, sounds like I'll have to do some research.
The next wave of MGM's made-on-demand discs has been announced for mid-March. Noir and near-noir titles include The Captive City, Cop Hater, Not as a Stranger (Gloria Grahame and Robert Mitchum alert!)
Got my copy of The Prowler, looking forwards to seeing it. Can't wait for Cry Danger.
Just finished watching my DVD copy of The Prowler and it's fantastic. The print looks great and it's stuffed with extras including a video of the restoration of the Prowler. This is the way I want Noir on DVD for now on.
Last night I watched The Prowler and thought it looked Fantastic also !
I did not notice any combing effects, it looked pretty clean to me .
Only thing I noticed was at the 1 Hour 17 minute mark when they show Heflin's car outside the ghost town the film hipcups or hesitates a split second . Why is that?....is it where one reel of film ends and the next begins? I ask because you don't see this on most DVDs but occasionally you do. Also noticed the same thing on the new Appointment With Danger DVD.
