  2. Boy what a flick! It’s been a long time since I enjoy great Film Noir. The plot really got me. I don’t know why the critic gave it only 2.5*
    maybe because the final scene that is so cliche.
    Thanks Kevin for posting this gem.

  3. why is it when I click on “full screen” for any of your movies do I just get a totally black screen? this doesn’t happen to other movie sites I go to, just yours. thanks joanne

    • It should work now. You were probably using IE. I don’t know why it doesn’t work. Every other browser does. Use Chrome like I do for best results. Internet Explorer would have to get twice as good to be terrible.

      Big companies have techies to make sure every browser works. I have me. The least cooperative browser is Internet Explorer. Microsoft just seems to ignore standards because they don’t have to care.

      Use Chrome or Firefox please.
