CRY DANGER and RIDE THE PINK HORSE seem to occupy a joined space tonally in terms of noir protagonists. I think Powell and Montgomery could switch roles in their noirs to very interesting effect.
What the film most reminds me of these days is the fact that Powell pretty much hung up his noir connection at this point, with only a couple of TV shows that followed suit. That was a significant loss, because by CRY DANGER he really had the noir persona down cold.
Gord, has his turn as Marlowe in the TV version of "The Long Goodbye" surfaced? You know, the one where Tris Coffin "unstiffs" himself on live TV, coming back to life by walking off the set while the camera was still trained on him?
