Really nice and beautiful.

Speaking of Noir, for anyone in Toronto that wants to see the film that pretty much set the bar for Film Noir, Double Indemnity is playing at the Fox Theatre tonight...a total classic, and I am sure it'll be great on the big screen too!

...indeed Byron...early or first iteration noir brought a "dark realism" to cinema that tended to fantasy and propaganda before...especially in America...
