Tonight's Movie: Out of the Past (1947)

Tonight a change of pace with the brooding OUT OF THE PAST (1947), considered by many to be the quintessential example of film noir, starring Robert Mitchum, Jane Greer, and Kirk Douglas.

An interesting side note, portions of this dark and moody film were filmed in November 1946 in beautiful Bridgeport, California, in the Eastern High Sierras. Many of the landmarks visible in the film, such as the white courthouse and the general store, are still in existence today.

2014 Update: Please check out my review of the Warner Archive Blu-ray and two photos posts on the movie's locations (here and here).
