Noir Saturdays: The Big Clock


Guess what? Eddie’s Back!  Yep, and we’re kicking off with another noir classic, The Big Clock.

George Stroud (Ray Milland) is an ambitious executive editor at Crimeways magazine, under the ownership of the ruthless media magnate Earl Janoth (Charles Laughton). When Janoth kills his mistress in a passionate argument, he begins to cover his tracks, realizing that an unknown witness has seen him with his mistress. Without knowing who the mystery witness is, Janoth grows increasingly desperate to frame the innocent man seen outside her home just before the murder and puts Stroud in charge of finding the unidentified witness. The problem is, that Stroud was that witness.

Check it out tonight @ 11PM on TCM CST or 9AM CST on Sunday. Enjoy and check out the trailer.
