  1. Mike Hammer must die! Could not STAND this film when I studied it at UCB. Obviously, it’s a low budget Noir but it still shows the ungraceful fall from movie greatness ie: The Maltese Falcon, Out of the Past, to the campier than camp Noir’s made in the 50s-70s (save Vertigo, Chinatown, and a few others :). It can be argued that anything past 1949 sucks, but I still love them all. Thanks for the memories!

    • I did review Out of the Past a few days ago and enjoyed it, the same with The Maltese Falcon (although I haven’t reviewed that one for the blog). My favorite noir is probably The Big Sleep which is pre-1949 as you mentioned.
