      1. It’s such a well-constructed and plotted film, with lots of great characterizations and performances…and Steve McQueen is just plain cool. Can’t wait to hear what you think…thanks for trusting a recommendation!


    1. Eh, I’ve gotten used to speeding through commercials on movies. TiVo likes to tape films from oddball channels I didn’t know we had, and I always end up getting sucked into them despite the annoyance of commercial breaks haha.


    1. You should just go ahead and buy Notorious on DVD :P Can’t really go wrong with Hitch, Ingrid or my dearest Cary! Nightmare Alley is available on DVD as well through the Fox Film Noir series. Your local public library may have them in stock if you aren’t interested in buying.


        1. Hey now, Todd, don’t go volunteering my limited dough supply for refunds! (However, I may be willing to buy it off of him if he ends up hating it haha. That’s one great film my collection is missing — I have it saved on my DVR from the last time TCM ran it.)
