Charles Williams-I am not crazy about The Hot Spot, Dead
Calm, or The Third Voice, either, in case anyone is curious.
I think it is asking too much to boil down a Charles Williams
plot into a movie-it's a whole lot of plot. (I love The Pink
Jungle-very campy, not noir, but fun) Day Keene-Joy House is
great-fantastic screenplay-it has Charles Williams'
fingerprints all over it. Jim Thompson-After Dark, My Sweet
is my favorite Thompson film--also, my favorite contemporary
adaptation of a noir novel. Lionel White--The Killing is the
best, but The Big Caper is really, really good.
