Murder on the Orient Express. I think my favorite part was the extended opening, gathering up all the players before the journey starts. Mostly entertaining. The final act/resolution seems a bit over-cooked. I wonder if it comes across better in the book, though.
Key Largo. “Your head says one thing and your whole life says another. Your head always loses.” This was a drawing-room crime/suspense film with relatively low stakes. It turned out to be pretty good, but could use some trimming. Edward G. Robinson really carries it.
The Big Sleep. It’s got a twisty-turny plot where every encounter turns up some new intrigue. Not bad, but I didn’t fall in love with this one. Out of the Past is still the reigning film noir champion for me.
