There are entries in the careers of directors that often feel like watershed moments where they find their own style, their voice, or cut loose and unleash something memorable.

Criterion Review: NOTORIOUS (1946)

Notorious is one early entry that feels like a pivotal moment for the filmmaker.

His style is evident, but married to a narrative that feels in a way streamlined, resulting in a showcase for mastery of suspense to blend with a rather twisted love affair.

Thanks,]

The good folks at UCLA Film et Television Archive... have been restoring overlooked movies, and four of their efforts are freshly available on Blu-ray.

Three are noir films and one’s an unusual drama with a Frenchman’s view of America.

Produced independently by maverick European refugee Seymour Nebenzal for United Artists...

The Chase (1946) is a doozy of a postwar headache starring “Love That Bob” Cummings as a troubled, decorated, unemployed war vet who’s hired as a chauffeur by a suavely sadistic gangster (Steve Cochran).

It’s fair to wonder if the psychopath actually intends the chump to fall for his sultry trophy wife, played by Michele Morgan in long blonde locks and shimmery gowns.

An unfailingly wonderful Peter Lorre hangs around in world-weary cynical mode as a henchman.

He spends most of his time shrugging and yawning, so it means something when his boss’ moods make him wipe his brow.

OUT OF THE PAST (1946)

Robert Mitchum and Jane Greer in the classic that set the standard 1947 film noir-Out Of The Past

Adapted from Daniel Mainwaring’s provocatively titled novel Build My Gallows High (1946), Jacques Tourneur’s riveting noir is often ranked as one of the best of the genre.

There are multiple reasons why Out of the Past is such an exemplary work, and in part has to do with how faithfully and inventively it adheres to the form, where themes of betrayal, corruption and fatalism are interwoven and entangled together in a perplexing and convoluted plot.

Unlike most film noirs, however, much of the drama is played out not in the typical confined corners of a shadowy city, but in broad daylight and natural settings – in this case, the sun-drenched backdrops of Lake Tahoe and Puerto Vallarta.

[pictured actor ROBERT MITCHUM and JANE GREER IN "Out Of The Past"[1947]

Watch the film complete over there on Daily-motion:

Throughout, cinematographer, Nicholas Musuraca –who also filmed Tourneur’s Cat People (1942) – utilizes stark imagery, contrasting the dark scenes of murder and treachery with stunning compositions of rural, wooded retreats.

where themes of betrayal, corruption and fatalism are interwoven and entangled together in a perplexing and convoluted plot. Out Of The Past was re-released in France in 1967 as 'Pendez-moi haut et court'.

Alfred Hitchcock remakes his 1934 thriller into a lush, widescreen adventure. The Man Who Knew Too Much makes excellent use of exotic settings, playful chemistry between Doris Day and James Stewart, and the brisk story of an average man sucked into an international assassination plot.

Dr. Ben McKenna (Stewart), his wife Jo (Day) and their young son Hank are Americans on vacation in Marrakesh when they encounter the mysterious…

In France there was no such transitional period. American films had been popular in France before the war but the German occupation in 1940 meant that American films would not be seen in France for nearly five years. 

By the time American films returned to France, audiences there took notice of this dark, shadowy style that was conveyed in many of they films the were seeing.

The list of film noir movies -

The French critics subsequently coined the term “film noir” to describe these films.  

It would be some years before the term was embraced by American critics.   

Film noir encompassed a relatively short time span of less than 20 years and essentially ended by the late fifties.

Yet today, the interest in these films, both from a technical and cultural perspective is flourishing.

Double Indemnity is a 1944 American film noir, directed by Billy Wilder, co-written by Wilder and Raymond Chandler, and produced by Buddy DeSylva and Joseph Sistrom.

The term "double indemnity" refers to a clause in certain life insurance policies that doubles the payout in cases when death is caused by certain accidental means.

"I didn't get the money and--I didn't get the woman."

The film stars Fred MacMurray as an insurance salesman,

Barbara Stanwyck as a provocative housewife who wishes her husband were dead...

The screenplay was based on James M. Cain's 1943 novella of the same name, which originally appeared as an eight-part serial in Liberty magazine.

50 Best Film Noir Movie Poster Shop

For the uninitiated, one might ask, "What is film noir?"

The simplest way to describe it would be not for us to attempt describing it at all and let you read a few online descriptions.

Dictionary.com describes the film noir genre as follows: "A motion picture with an often grim urban setting, photographed in somber tones and permeated by a feeling of disillusionment, pessimism, and despair."
OK, not bad...a good start...

Wikipedia said this about film noir:

"Film noir is a cinematic term used primarily to describe stylish Hollywood crime dramas, particularly those that emphasize cynical attitudes and sexual motivations.

Hollywood's classic film noir period is generally regarded as stretching from the early 1940's to the late 1950's." That about nails it!

LADY IN THE LAKE-

It has been suggested that the film might have been better if Montgomery chose not to direct it. He went on to direct himself in three other movies, then that was it as a director.

One can only wonder why. In this movie he plays the gumshoe Philip Marlowe.

A couple of Chandler gems in the script were, Adrienne (Audrey Totter) to Marlowe, "Do you fall in love with all of your clients? Only the ones in skirts".

"Perhaps you'd better go home and play with your fingerprint collection.

"and "That wasn't for nothing.

No, it was for five hundred bucks, and you got a little piece of my soul, along with my services.

This Is Issue No# 1 Cover...From ManHunt Magazine...

Manhunt boasted it was the world's best-selling crime fiction magazine...

[Volume #08-August 53' ]

...and was certainly the "gold standard" against which all other "tough" crime magazines of the period measured themselves.

[Volume #03-March 53' ]

Starting in January 1953 as a monthly digest, it flirted briefly (from March 1957 to May 1958) with a larger format to enhance newstand sales.

[Volume 03. No# 12 -December]

The latter was not a success however and it soon reverted to digest size and dropped to bimonthly. In all it ran for almost 15 years and notched up a very respectable 114 issues.

[Volume 04. No#1-January]

From January 1953 to March 1956 the cover read Manhunt Detective Story Monthly, but the magazine was always called just Manhunt in the table of contents.
