Re: Your all time favourite Noir films?

Gun Crazy (1950)--my all-time favorite.
The Asphalt Jungle--my other all-time favorite.
Act of Violence--unaccountably underseen. Van Heflin and Robert Ryan in a first-rate noir.
Pitfall--believable, great acting, outstanding script.
Out of the Past--pure noir.
Detour--low-budget, but unforgettable.
Touch of Evil--combines a sleazy story with high-quality talent and production.
Notorious--my favorite Hitchcock.
Double Indemnity--can be re-watched over and over and...
The Big Heat--has it all, and Gloria Grahame, too!
Too Late for Tears--Lizbeth Scott is lushly evil, with Dan Duryea's best performance.
Criss Cross--divinely duplicitous Duryea.
Blue Gardenia--Fritz Lang's intense look at self-paranoia and a bit of a foot fetish.

I hope everybody watches all of these, but at least catch the first five!
