Film Noir (Must Have) DVD Collection



I’ve been a fan of “film noir” movies (click to read more, if you are not familiar with that movie genre) since I was a kid. Not that I knew what movies in this genre were actually called back then, LOL!
 Loved the mysterious atmosphere that these movies portrayed:

 The night scenes, the danger, the spine-tingling suspense, the romance, the glamour, wonderful 40s clothing and music, the bad guys, the bad girls…what’s not to ♥, right? 😉 
I happened to find this Film Noir Collection: two DVD set over at Amazon for less than $10!!!
And that is for all 10 of these Film Noir classics:
DOA
BEAT THE DEVIL
IMPACT
THE STRANGER
SCARLET STREET
SHOCK
PORT OF NEW YORK
THEY MADE ME A CRIMINAL
WHIRLPOOL
QUICKSAND
***
As for quality, excellent picture and sound, considering the age of the original films these were reproduced from, all from the 40’s.
Only one thing that might be a negative for some viewers, this is a full-screen version not widescreen. For me though, it was fine, as we have an older TV and the full screen versions for movies are actually better.
This would also make a great gift for any “film noir” fans on your list. 
The DVDs are packaged in a black metal tin, instead of the usual plastic DVD case. Add a red ribbon tied around it and you’d be good to go! 😉
If you are a film noir fan like I am or know someone who is, this is a must have collection! 

Happy Week and Viewing


Overall rating for this product: Very Good. 4 out of 5.

  1. Excellent review. These are great movies and a lot better than what they turn out now. This set is a real bargain. Cool packaging too.

    1. I don't like many recent movies either. For all the $$ they've got to spend now as compared to years ago, you think they would do better.

      Give me a classic from the 40s, any day!😊

  2. I don't care for modern movies and I wondered if it was my adult taste changing. Apparently not. I'll check with Amazon UK to see what they have.

    1. I hear ya Val. I'm sure Amazon UK has plenty in the film noir genre, maybe even this set. TCM is also a great place for all things noir. :-)

  3. I have never heard of them but they sound intriguing. We do not have a DVD player but I bet they are around somewhere on VHS.#Have a great week Diane

    1. I've loved films from the 40s since I was a kid. I never tire of these classics. The modern movies, hard to find one I could even bother to sit through. I would like to see "Jackie" though. I heard that's a good one.

  9. My husband would enjoy this. I recognize a few of the names from when I was a kid. That would have been in the 1950s.
