Film Noir HoF IV

Tools    






Film Noir Hall of Fame IV

Open to Films from: 1940 to 1959 that are tagged 'noir' at either IMDB or Wiki.

I'd like this to be a quick HoF, as I want to do a couple more of these before the Noir Countdown deadline. So the length will be like 6 weeks.

So what are you waiting for? Send me your noms and we'll start faster than a B-girl can make for a drunk loaded with dough in a dingy dive.
Deadline: December 16th

I've never participated in a hall of fame before. Do I just pm you two nominations for the HOF. I'm also new to noir so this might help focus on the essential films of the genre.
Glad to have you! Any questions just ask. Yeah pm me but it's only one movie nomination.

I should say as per the usual HOF rules, noirs that already won an HOF aren't eligible...Laura, In a Lonely Place, Sunset Blvd, The Big Heat, The Big Sleep and The Third Man



Good! I'm starting my noir watching binge tonight. After 6 months of war films I need something cheery
Lol, very cheery.



I gotta look up what has already been nominated but thankyou for doing this.
I hope to be able to do another Noir HoF and also a Neo Noir HoF before the Noir and Neo Noir countdowns deadlines are up.

That's good because I'm trying to find this noir I saw on Noir Alley that was really good but it's hard to find in my records and I don't want to give away the big twist(which is what makes it so special). I know somebody did a review of it so it might pop in this Hall



I forgot the opening line.
It's a toughie - I'd like to find a Film Noir from this era that's never been nominated before. I might go blind, I'm not so well watched Film Noir-wise, though spending two and a half years here has sure broadened my noir knowledge somewhat.

You bet, CR. I'll be happy to join the fun.

Just to be sure, you're wanting only 1 nomination per person sent to you; and that nomination can't be a noir that has won before. Is that correct?
