  1. Wow, 47 minutes for an abbot and Costello film. Wasn’t expecting that after only 17 minutes for Cat People. Nice to hear To Be or Not to Be mentioned, would love to hear a podcast on that film. I also hope a western(non john Wayne) gets reviewed on this podcast at some point.

    1. Did John Wayne make any that’d be considered a film noir? Maybe Big Jim McLain or Hatari!? If so, I’d review that on this show.

      1. Ha, good look finding a john Wayne noir. But gene Kelly made one – called Christmas Holiday(for real)
