Day 27: Favorite Classic Movie

This is as good an excuse as any to applaud some of my favorite noir folks, including actors Richard Widmark and Googie Withers and director Jules Dassin. Herbert Lom, Mike Mazurki, Francis L. Sullivan and wrestler Stanislaus Zbyszko make for a stunning cast of underworld characters. Gene Tierney may be wasted, but otherwise this is taut, rich noir at its best, definitely a classic.
