    For those who don't know, many of the OG Film Noir classics have fallen into public domain and are available for free on youtube. They're under the openflix category :hat:

    Hard boiled crime and detective movies from that era are my favorite! Raymond Chandler or anything with Bogey.

    Well over the last few days I've watched The Stranger, The Strange Love of Martha Ivers (with a super young Kurt Douglas, looked like he was around 18), Please Murder Me with Raymond Burr, and a few more. All classic Film Noir from the era. If you like that sort of thing, and I do, it's just tits :D

    Cool. I didn't know a lot of those fall under public domain.

    One of my favorite movies of all time is Hitchcock's "Rope" It was filmed in one continuous shot with one camera. The camera would freeze on an object when the reels would be changed. He was brilliant. :wub:
