tourneur's mitchum

tourneur's mitchum

from 30.00

#art/#history - #noirvember: 'build my gallows high, baby!' here's a phrase that only robert mitchum could utter with enough passionate nuance & complexity that you really feel the pained desperation of his character from 'out of the past' (known in the UK as 'build my gallows high', a film noir tour de force directed by jacques tourneur, born #otd in 1904). you may be more familiar with tourneur's low budget b sides, but i'll get into those in my next post. it's a JT double feature tonight. how can i encourage you to seek out 'build my gallows high'? well, the library of congress deemed it of aesthetic, historic & cultural significance. it's also one of james ellroy's faves. that's no weak sauce, daddio. as for mitchum, he's more than meets the eye. did you know he was an accomplished musician who recorded two albums? now you do.
