Check this one out, if you haven't seen it: a noir directed by a woman! Lupino was decades ahead of her time in '53.

on what Quint's big announcement is going to be. I'm no odds maker, so I'm not even going to try, but suggestions<P>Quint is leaving (ala Mori)<P>Quint is staying but AMAD is moving to another site and he'll be pulling double duty<P>AMAD will be going to a movie a week<P>AMAD will be ending<P>Quint got himself a gig on TCM with Robert Osborne because of AMAD
Dec. 23, 2008, 4:52 a.m. CST
On December 31st, Quint will be watching Jaws as part of AMAD...because he's been leading us along all this time and he's never really seen it!<p> Thanks for the review, Q-man. It inspired me to google image search Ida Lupino for about the tenth time this year...

If you look up Quintessa you'll find links to wine, cigars, luxury yachts, online modeling applications, and a miniature horse farm. <p> Maybe Quint won the lottery and is going to go all "wine, women, and song" for a year? <p> Me, I think Quint's going to start raising miniature horses. <p> This was rather random post, wasn't it?

Worth watching just to see James Spader as a BLONDE!

Claude Rains was a class act, just great in everything I've seen him in. I'm curious as to your feelings about his character, Quint, when you watch him in Notorious.
Dec. 23, 2008, 9:24 a.m. CST
He remains to me one of the strongest visual directors of all time. There's always some element that was new and exciting about each of his films. While I know he's well regarded in cine-circles, I wish his work was more well known to the masses.
Dec. 23, 2008, 9:26 a.m. CST
Hadn't heard of this one... but accoring to the product description in Amazon: "Fueled by cocaine and armed with a shotgun, Eddie's lust turns to uncontrollable rage, as he takes Abby on a date from hell!" How could that go wrong eh?

Apart from the 'spot the Lang' influence - clocks as Quint points out - it is just such a joy to see the great Jean Gabin in an English speaking role. He has the presence of a Tracy or a Mifune - great actor. ANd Lupino more than matches up - any chance we'll be visiting her best noir turn in Road House? Love Rains hat in this too - but not so much the towel-whipping naked Rains part. I'd have said the central affair, though, was more Tiny's obsession with Bobo. And Mitchell is superb - much as I love his 'normal' roles he does make a fabulous bad guy.

I don't see Q going A Movie Every Other Day on us - even less likely 2 movies a day.<p>So I'm going to guess he signed a book deal to get these published. Or should.

I hope it is positive. The column is the best idea in years and it has been consistent. This is what I did with a group of other video store clerks a decade ago, bring home a non new release and watch and trade up, and discuss it. I have started back watching a film a day, went from the Party, Skin Deep, and then Blind Date.

Thomas Mitchell as a bad guy. The guy's one of my favorite character actors and I was just thinking I couldn't remember him being a bad guy in anything.
