I read In A Lonely Place to do an essay on the film and was amazed how such a neat little book became such a bogus film. (Yes, I know, a lot of people love the film and it is one of Bogart's best performances but its allure escapes me and I can't see how anyone considers it noir in the least.) Over the holiday break I'll be reading Ride The Pink Horse. Haven't found the flick yet, but it's on my list. That and Nightmare Alley. And Wages of Fear, and . . .

Well, you know how it goes.
