It's well worth watching.

Edward G. Robinson is a mild mannered cashier who get's involved with a scheming femme fatale, played by Suspiria's Joan Bennet. He doesn't realise that her and her boyfriend are just using him as a sucker so they can steal from him.

I really enjoyed it. And the Kino release is excellent and region free.

Not up on my noir, I'm not always sure what qualifies. But here goes with a mix of classic, modern and what i see as fitting

Odd Man Out. Carol Reed. 1947.
Touch of Evil. Orson Welles. 1958.
Casablanca. Michael Curtiz. 1942
The Killers. Don Siegel. 1964
Thief. Michael Mann. 1981
Batman. Tim Burton. 1989
L.A.Confidential. Curtis Hanson. 1997.
Dead Again. Kenneth Brannagh. 1991.
Dark City. Alex Proyas. 1998.
Sin City. Robert Rodriguez. 2005.

I've just ordered the Odeon release.

It's from the same Library of Congress source as the Kino dvd but has a better transfer according to dvdcompare.

Rewind @ www.dvdcompare.net - Scarlet Street (1945)

Thanks b_e and Crimson Blade.

The Big Lebowski is definitely a neo-noir as it has all the elements of a classic film noir but in a contemporary setting, so you can add it to your list!

I'm now looking at buying that release or alternatively the Film Noir: Five Classics From the Studio Vaults set which contains it and for others, only one of which (They Made Me a Fugitive) I've seen.

I don't think I'll be including any Neo-Noir in my list (Chinatown may creep in though...) as the term is used way too broadly in my opinion.

I'd actually go a step further and say it's in my Top 100 films of all time list. Hopefully you'll enjoy it as much as I do, Dem.
