...and you haven't seen it yet, add "Touch Of Evil" to your list. This is film-noir at its finest. It's got everything: explosions, corrupt cops, alcoholism, prostitution, narcotics, guns, and LOTS of darkness. Orson Welles is unbelievably good as Hank Quinlan, the 300+ lb. corrupt cop. I put his performance up there with Brando's in "On The Waterfront". He's able to bring subtlety to a larger-than-life character. It's beautifully filmed as well. My only beef is they went a little overboard with Heston's make-up.
