hot off the presses is the very latest issue of the original bi-monthly publication for noir movie fans; here’s what you’ll find in it…
The cover story is a feature on one of noir’s greatest dames, Gloria Grahame. There’s part 2 of the Jean Heather profile, nuggets on Marilyn Monroe in noir, steep ponderings on the question of “what is noir?” and on the question of why a bunch of the best noir actresses didn’t get Oscars they so richly deserved, another installment in the ongoing history of noir music, plus the usual quizzes and quotes and letters.
As for me, I contributed a movie review plus my regular Noir on TCM viewing calendar full of details on a theme; this issue it’s all about movie-making bumpy rides, problems legal, contractual, personal, trivial and/or financial, and let you know about all the noir dvd and blu-ray releases confirmed through the next couple months.
