Film Noir : Best ensemble noirs.

Best ensemble noirs.

That is to say which noirs have the best/biggest collection of noir actors? Something that gives The Strange Love of Martha Ivers some competition.

Secondary challenge. Represent as many noir greats as you can with only 5 films.

Scarlet Street/East Side West Side/Pitfall/Crossfire/Casablanca - Stanwyck, Mason, Heflin, Garner, Powell, Scott, Wyatt, Burr, Robinson, Duryea, Bennett, Ryan, Mitchum, Grahame, Bogart, Bergman, Rains, Lorre, Henreid, Greenstreet.

Re: Best ensemble noirs.

Do you consider East Side West Side a film noir?

Re: Best ensemble noirs.

Cheating + murder + that cast = more noir than Casablanca at least. Wikipedia calls it a "melodramatic crime" film. Isn't that basically noir in 2 words?

Re: Best ensemble noirs.

I'd say Laura has a lot of stars in it. Tierney, Andrews, Webb, Price and Anderson.
Touch of Evil. Heston, Leigh, Welles and Marlene.

Jessica Rabbit
