Die Old Flame

An ember ignites in your head
Inflamed, your mind's eye's seeing red
A memory burning
With passionate yearning
A vision that smolders in bed.

Ava Gardner and Burt Lancaster in The Killers (Robert Siodmak, 1947). Welcome to Haunted Love Week at Limerwrecks.

Haunted Love Week is right up my alley. Question: If you are limerick-ing about film noir, shouldn't you leave out any references to color? Just a thought.

Welcome to Limerwrecks, Suzi. We're flattered to have you here. I'll bet Haunted Love Week must be right up your nightmare alley. You raise a good point about color and noir, but what about The Blue Dahlia, Scarlet Street and Ride the Pink Horse?
Just kidding. While we have done a couple full-on noir weeks--all still available, of course--this one isn't just noir--it's also Old Dark House/supernatural thriller.
