I'm very eager to see this with my kids, who are both hardboiled and noir fans and had already gotten word...

And I would like to thank the poster who warned about Don Siegel's
_The Lineup_ on Turner. I watched that and, before, a minor but quite interesting 1958 film, _Stakeout on Dope Street_. Nice introductions by Ellroy. The Lineup is an outstanding film, classic Siegel, a masterfully cold narration of hot events. Fantastic. I shudder to think of what Pauline Kael thought of Siegel!
