Have I told you guys how much I like noir? No? Well, I do. This year, I’m doing something a little bit different for Saturdays; it’s now Noir Saturdays. I will give a brief plot about a film showing today on TCM. I love the host Eddie Muller and his take on the films. He is very passionate and knowledgeable and one day I hope to have someone love me the way that Eddie loves film noir. Anyway, I digress; on with today’s offering, His Kind of Woman.
Nick Ferraro, deported crime boss, needs to re-enter the USA. His plan involves “honest” gambler Dan Milner, who’s subjected to a series of “misfortunes,” then bribed to take a trip to Mexico. En route, Dan meets chanteuse Lenore Brent, truly his kind of woman. But on arrival at posh Morros Lodge in Baja California, Dan finds the ostensibly rich, carefree guests all playing roles…except, possibly, ham actor Mark Cardigan. What does Ferraro want with him? Can he trust anyone?
And the cast includes Robert Mitchum, Jane Russell, Vincent Price. I mean with that lineup, it has to be good, right? It’s showing on TCM tonight @ 11 PM CST and again on Sunday morning @ 9AM CST. Oh here’s the trailer for the movie. Enjoy and have a good one.
Any hoo, here’s the trailer below. Enjoy
