And the inimitable Elisha Cook, Jr... aka "Wilmer". What a great generation of actors that was! Thanks in part to my son, I have been dipping very seriously into B noir films. Curiously, the rarest films of that era are circulating in Europe, and cheaply to boot. It's a feast. Not enough has been said about cinematographers, perhaps because the tough guys and gals were so explosive.
