Darn-this is one of the few that I knew. Best movie of 1944, easily.

Laura is probably no 1 in my top 10. This week at least.

Camera in a buddha, I mean, if you hadn't run the contest, I'd have NEVER seen the visual relationship between Laura and The Big Sleep.

I'd know that busted up clock anywhere... If only all grandfather clocks had a shotgun hidden inside.

You need to start posting these F&L's AFTER I get off work and can participate. :-)
