Standout of the Past

No beauty in noir would appear
more stunning than that of Jane Greer
She lit the short fuse
of boss Howard Hughes
who almost derailed her career

Jane Greer in Out of the Past (Jacques Tourneur, 1947)

She's a beauty... and Out of the Past is on TCM even as we speak. I never get tired of that movie.

I agree. It's one of those films I can watch again and again.

I love it when the mute teen kills the guy with a fly rod. One of the best deaths ever. Thanks for the poem!

I love it too! I especially like how casual Mitchum and the kid are after the killing. Great scene!
