Great bargain, loved the packaging.

Even the movie with Mickey Rooney in it was great (Quicksand), probably my favorite (and I'm not a Mickey Rooney fan).
Fitness Fanatic
Most of the movies were very good and really held my interest through out.

Right off the bat, I have to assume that the only way anyone can put together a collection of 10 films noir and sell it for less than 10 bucks is to get the movies from the public domain and not have to pay any royalties for them. Usually, collections assembled in that way are pathetic at best, such as the "50 movie packs" of science fiction, westerns and other genre films that you can pick up for a song. Most if not all of the films in such collections are obscure, laughably bad grade-Z stinkers that are a total waste of time to watch. Plus, their video and audio quality typically suck big-time.

That's not the case for "The Film Noir Collection." First, the movies are not that obscure. In fact, some of them are genuine classics. Several are available individually (a quick search found "Whirlpool," "D.O.A." and "Scarlet Street," and there may be others). Eddie Muller covers five of these movies in his fantastic film noir volume "Dark City: The Lost World of Film Noir," which gives them a lot of legitimacy. I haven't yet watched them all, but I have run all of them for a few minutes to make sure they played okay and to check out the video and audio quality. It should be no surprise if I say that the video and sound quality vary greatly among the films. They're unrestored and un-remastered, obviously, so their quality doesn't compare with films that have gotten professional treatment.

A wonderful set of classic Film Noir, It includes some of my old time favorites of D.O.A. with Ed O'Brien looking for the person who poisioned him before he dies, The Stranger with Loretta Young and Edward G. Robinson, a wife finding out that her husband is an infamous Nazi spy, Shock with Vincent Price, a wonderful film Noir, different than the usual horror classic that you usually see him in, He still plays a Dr. but the outcome flows with the suspense of a classic Noir,Quicksand..ahh with a young Mickey Rooney, Jeanne Cagney, and Peter Lorre. Unique in itself, with the suspense,it keeps you entertained from beginning to end. Other Classics..Beat The Devil, Impact, Scarlet Street,Port of New York, Whirlpool, and They made me a Criminal, keep the viewer going from one film to the next, Over 15 hours appx. 902 min. Done on 2 DVD discs, with your classic Movie Tin. A wonderful set for the Mystery/Suspense film Noir buff! Hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

The two discs included hold some minor Film Noir from the late 30's through early 50's. I have always liked Beat The Devil, D.O.A is a fun, outlandish Film Noir, and the others are right on par.
The price was very good, and the films may not be academy award calibre (The Stranger is a standout), but they are solid Film Noir examples with known actors like Bogie, Edward G., Peter Lorre, John Garfield, Gene Tierney, Vincent Price, Orson Welles, Jennifer Jones, Edmund O'Brien, Pamela Britton, Richard Conte, Jose Ferrer, Yul Brynner, Scott Brady . . . and etc. Not bad for Hollywood stars and character actors.
The quality may be lacking on some of the prints, but all in all you can't beat this gritty, fun collection.

I love film noir. I knew of only one of these movies by title (DOA) when buying this and realized I've watched three of the ten. I ended up liking 9 of the 10 movies and watched all of them over 4 days. Even the movie with Mickey Rooney in it was great (Quicksand), probably my favorite (and I'm not a Mickey Rooney fan). This is a great value and a must buy for people who like film noir. You won't be disappointed. 10 movies for $10. Excellent! The tin it came in was kind of cool, too.

Not the best quality but acceptable. These films have not been restored but the contrast and resolution are adequate for standard TV viewing. I have seen better quality of the same films elsewhere but for the price, these are OK.

A mixture of very the very good with some less well known but entertaining movies. Unfortunately the DVD are not top quality with several of the movies experiencing skips in locations reproducible across a number of players :-)

Excellent selection. I was especially pleased to see the last one made by Bogart- the Harder they Fall. Quintessential Bogart.

A wonderful gift for anyone who enjoys either Humphrey Bogart or film noire. My favorite movies in this collection are "DOA", "Impact", "The Stranger", and "Whirlpool". The Bogart film "Beat the Devil" isn't my favorite film from Bogie; however, even a not-great Bogart film is a great film. If you haven't seen "The Stranger", by all means watch it as soon as you can. "DOA" is great, so much better than the remake.
