GILDA (dir: Charles Vidor, Not Rated) - Greg says, "Wow, Rita Hayworth was a real hottie. In a tranny sort of way. Other than her inexplicably breaking into song a few times in this movie, Iíd say itís flawless. Glenn Ford plays a small-time hustler who finds himself in Buenos Aires and working as the right hand man for a shady casino owner. Hayworth plays his trophy wife and, wouldnít you know it, she and Ford are previously acquainted. Cue lots of double crosses and moody cinematography. Even though Iím pretty sure she was born with male genitals, Rita Hayworth is truly one of the all-time great Hollywood bombshells."
THE BIG SLEEP (dir: Howard Hawks, Not Rated) - Michelle says, "Smoking was still cool when Bogie and Bacall starred in this noir classic about a private dick working for a wealthy family in a noir underworld of gats and gambling. Bruised, sweating, or rain-soaked, Bogartís always smooth, and Bacall glows when he calls her Angel. The writing engages like all Phillip Marlowe stories, but the narrativeís complex, so watch the movie more than once. Youíll definitely want to."
THE KILLERS (dir: Robert Siodmak, Not Rated) - Bart says, "About 15 minutes into THE KILLERS there's a scene that contains one of the most indelible images in all film noir: a sweaty, resigned Burt Lancaster lying in bed, quietly welcoming the bullets of the gangsters he knew would eventually find him and kill him. And this is where the Hemingway story the film's based upon ends. The rest of the film is a flashback to the shady business of bank heists and double-crosses that led to Burt's predicament, all of which is the screenwriter's invention, and all of which is real good stuff - particularly Ava Gardner as a memorable femme fatale whose lazy selfishness (rather than any scheming maliciousness) leads to the destruction of all those who cross her path."
