Not bad at all !,
This review is from: Bad Girls of Film Noir, Vol. 1 (The Killer That Stalked New York / Two of a Kind / Bad for Each Other / The Glass Wall) (DVD)
I was so looking forward to this release.
A complete flop !
Perhaps the title refers to the fact that for instance Gloria Grahame and Liz Scott (Too late for tears !!) has indeed a reputation as "bad girls" from dozens of Film Noirs.
Bad girls yes, but not in this collection !
No conniving double crossing, back-stabbing, femme fatales here, not at all.
Rather sympathetic nice girls really, all the way through.
The kind of girl you wouldn't have second thoughts about marrying.
And I believe that this is not what the hardened Noir fan is expecting.
And is it really Noir ?
Average black & white thrillers from the late 40's, early 50's, is what this collection contains.
Some of them perhaps better than the one star I give this collection.
But as a concept, this release completely misses the mark.
Bad research og no knowledge of the genre perhaps ?
