Damn! No noir today, because I think that the show is on hiatus until March. They’ve done this before and I don’t see them changing. Anyway here’s today’s offering, Talk About a Stranger
When his dog dies, apparently from being poisoned, the young son of the owner of a small, orange orchid in California, immediately suspects an unfriendly, mysterious stranger who has just moved into the area, who recently had a quarrel with the boy’s father. The boy’s suspicions grow and also influence other townspeople who begin to believe that the stranger may also be a wanted killer. Unwarranted assumptions and wild speculations lead to several problems before the truth is revealed.
Now I am no expert, but I guess this is noir; I mean I didn’t really see all the true elements of classic noir, but who knows. Anyway, check out Eddie’s introduction and conclusion about the film. Next week, since there is no more noir alley, we’ll get into some faves of mine; and I have a few! Have a good one.
