Turner Classic Movies Adds Film Noir Programmer Eddie Muller as On-Air Host (EXCLUSIVE)

Turner Classic Movies Adds Film Noir Programmer Eddie Muller as On-Air Host (EXCLUSIVE) | Filmnoirliveshere | Scoop.it
At the Saturday night screening of "Noir City" in San Francisco, Eddie Muller revealed that he will be joining Turner Classic Movies as an on-air host.
FilmNoirLivesHere's insight:

A jubilant Muller said that the most important thing about his three-year contract was that it was non-exclusive, meaning that he could continue to do his work restoring films with the Film Noir Foundation -- the announcement was made by treasurer Alan K. Rode -- and presenting film noir festivals around the world.

CRITERION: Mildred Pierce Arrives in February

CRITERION: Mildred Pierce Arrives in February | Filmnoirliveshere | Scoop.it

FilmNoirLivesHere's insight:
"Criterion announced Joan Crawford's Oscar-winning film, Mildred Pierce will be making its Blu-Ray premiere in February, as well as receiving an upgraded DVD. The classic film noir originally dropped on DVD in 2003 and is receiving its introduction into the Criterion Collection. Bonus features are below. Mildred Pierce arrives on February 21st."

Melodrama casts noirish shadows in this portrait of maternal sacrifice from the Hollywood master Michael Curtiz. Its iconic performance by Joan Crawford as Mildred, a single mother hell-bent on freeing her children from the stigma of economic hardship, solidified Crawford's career comeback and gave the actor her only Oscar. But as Mildred pulls herself up by the bootstraps, first as an unflappable waitress and eventually as the well-heeled owner of a successful restaurant chain, the ingratitude of her materialistic firstborn (a diabolical Ann Blyth) becomes a venomous serpent's tooth, setting in motion an endless cycle of desperate overtures and heartless recriminations.

Recasting James M. Cain's rich psychological novel as a murder mystery, this bitter cocktail of blind parental love and all-American ambition is both unremittingly hard-boiled and sumptuously emotional. BONUS FEATURES: New 4K digital restoration, with uncompressed monaural soundtrack on the Blu-ray New conversation about Mildred Pierce with critics Molly Haskell and Robert Polito Excerpt from a 1970 episode of The David Frost Show featuring actor Joan Crawford Joan Crawford: The Ultimate Movie Star, a 2002 feature-length documentary on Crawford's life and career Q&A with actor Ann Blyth from 2002, conducted by film historian Eddie Muller Segment from a 1969 episode of the Today show featuring novelist James M. Cain Trailer PLUS: An essay by critic Imogen Sara Smith

L'authentique recette du Kouglof - Cuisine moi un mouton

L'authentique recette du Kouglof - Cuisine moi un mouton | Filmnoirliveshere | Scoop.it
Le Kouglof connu pour sa mie tendre et briochée dans laquelle se promènent de nombreux petits raisins imbibés de rhum! Un régal :)
FilmNoirLivesHere's insight:

Le kouglof est une spécialité Alsacienne, Autrichienne et Allemande préparée traditionnellement dans un moule en cuivre ou en terre cuite en forme de cheminée.
Très reconnaissable de par sa forme haute et cannelée, sa croûte brune claire, ses amandes et son sucre glace qui le recouvre le Kouglof connait une multitude d’histoires quant à ses origines!
Je vais vous raconter ma préférée : certains racontent que le kouglof serait originaire de Bethléem. En sortant de la crèche du petit Jésus, un roi mage aurait oublié son chapeau, un turban d’or serti de diamants en forme d’amande. Au retour de croisade, ce couvre chef se serait retrouvé en Alsace chez un pâtissier qui s’en serait servi comme moule et ainsi serait né le « Kugelhopf » qui signifie « turban » en alsacien.

Union Station Los Angeles

Union Station Los Angeles | Filmnoirliveshere | Scoop.it
at Union Station | "CRISS CROSS" 1949

Friday, November 4, 8:00pm - 9:00pm, Union Station Historic Ticketing Hall

FREE admission. Seating is first-come, first-served.

When he died in 1947, producer Mark Hellinger had just begun pre-production on this crime-ridden love story that was supposed to be the L.A-based bookend to his New York policier hit The Naked City (1948). Thanks to the brilliant work of director Siodmak, CRISS CROSS remains perhaps the most darkly poetic rendering of amour fou in film noir. Burt Lancaster and Dan Duryea plot a daring heist, while vying for the sensual Yvonne DeCarlo. Union Station and Bunker Hill locations abound and don’t miss a young Tony Curtis burning up the floor of a downtown nightclub!

All films in the series feature scenes shot at Union Station.

This title will be released on April 17, 2017. Pre-order now. When a body is found in the New Orleans docks, it's pretty obvious that he died from gun shot wounds.


The police surgeon notices that the man is also displaying other symptoms and Lt. Commander Clint Reed, a doctor with the U.S. Public Health Service, diagnoses a highly contagious disease, pneumonic plague.


He tries to convince local officials to find everyone who may have been in contact with the dead man. The Mayor supports his efforts but many, including the police, are doubtful. Reed wants to avoid publicity so as not to panic the public.


They have little information to go on - they don't know the dead man's identity - and Reed estimates they have 48 hours before disease begins to spread. With police Capt. Tom Warren going through the motions, Reed sets out to find the killers. High Definition Transfer Commentary by Alain Silver and James Ursini More TBC
