    1. Certainly one of my favorite movies. Fred McMurray being cast against type really displayed his acting talents. Although I was always impressed by him in movies and playing the nice guy authentically can be tougher than playing villains. He had great comic timing and actually started his career as a singer.

      So once again enjoyed the commentary, especially the behind the scenes stuff from Rose. Oddly I have never read anything from Raymond Chandler, a deficiency I must correct. I always get him confused with Dashiell Hammett, maybe it is the film Bogart connection. Oh and speaking of Bogart connections, Fred McMurray also played against type in "The Caine Mutiny" (which I look forward to you commentary of.) I think I read that book for the first time last year and totally loved it.

      The discussion of these characters brought to mind the story of a couple that scandalized Americans in 1927 regarding their murder plot. Ron Hansen based his book "A Wild Surge of Guilty Passion" on them in his last novel.
