Nightmare Allez-vous?

Film Noir’s a term coined by the French
Who sniffed out a foul post-war stench
This fetid bouquet
Of moral decay
Arose from a World War Two trench

Amnesiac gun-toting vets
Against the long odds placed their bets
But rolled loaded dice
So paid a high price
‘cause fate will collect on all debts

John Hodiak and Nancy Guild try to remember Somewhere in the Night (Joseph L. Mankiewicz, 1947).
