What more can one hope for or pray
Than a flick starring Dan Duryea
As snake, schmoe or cad,
Dan makes you feel glad
You went to the movies that day.
Dan Duryea never quite got his due, but here at Limerwrecks we can never get enough of his distinctive nasal tone and his sneering, sniveling and loose limbed, easy manner. Top: Fritz Lang's Scarlet Street; Above: Duryea gives Yvonne DeCarlo the once-over in Robert Siodmak's Criss Cross (from A Certain Cinema); Below: June Vincent and Duryea on the set of Roy William Neill's Black Angel.
