A Monthy of Noir Day 12 - More and More Mitchum

I had fun doing this last week with Bogart and the more I thought about it, the more I wanted to spotlight a few other stars of the genre.  After all, September only has 30 days, so there is no way I was going to get around to viewing all of these movies. 

Today I give you my  personal favorite film noir star, Robert Mitchum.  Night of the Hunter and Cape Fear are two of my favorite films from his career, but since I've already seen them, they weren't going to be mentioned this month, which would be a shame.  They are classic, almost required viewing.  Her are the trailers for those two films along with a couple others.   Be on the lookout for more Mitchum later this month.

Night of the Hunter


Where Danger Lives

His Kind of Woman

Cape Fear


  1. Mitchum will always be a quintessential noir fixture for me. "Out of the Past" just might be my favorite noir ever. "Night of the Hunter" is a one of a kind film that I can't see anyone but Mitchum playing. I could talk about his roles all day.

  2. Agreed, Mitchum is the Man of the genre, and Out of the Past is my favorite noir. It's probably the film I will review on September 30th. Can't think of a better way to end the month.
