Double Indemnity – Two Days, Two Times, Twice the Indemnity!

I am very much enjoying the FREE film noir course offered online by Canvas and TCM. I don’t have cable so I am missing out on TCM’s Summer of Darkness every Friday but I have access to many of the Noir films through Hulu, Amazon Prime, and Netflix streaming (plus my beloved mother-in-law bought me a set for my birthday).

I will however shell out the bucks to catch the classic Double Indemnity on the big screen. TCM is bringing it back through Fathom Events on Sunday, July 19th and Monday, July 20th (their normal Wednesday shows had a conflict with another Fathom program). Showtimes are at 2 and 7 p.m. local time.

In my area this will be playing at Carolina Cinemas in Asheville and the Regal Hollywood 20 in Greenville.

FREE Film Noir Class

Well I haven’t done a This ‘n’ That in quite some time. I’m preparing these posts a week ahead as my Florida daughter and granddaughter will be visiting this week and I did not want to fall behind.

TCM Noir

I received an email from TCM recently. As with most companies, most emails are just ignorable spam. This one caught my eye however. TCM in conjunction with Canvas Network is offering a FREE online course in Film Noir. I have included the link below and look forward to taking this course (my first online course or really any course in decades).

TCM Presents Into the Darkness: Investigating Film Noir

It will certainly help if you have TCM as they are showing 24 hours of Noir every Friday in June and July BUT they will be posting FREE links to Noir films in the public domain and there are a ton of those.

I’m looking forward to rewatching some of my favorites. I really haven’t watched any old noir in decades. I remember some of my favorites being D.O.A., Out of the Past, Double Indemnity, Touch of Evil, and This Gun for Hire.

I hope they’ll cover neo-noirs too like Chinatown, The Last Seduction, Body Heat, L.A. Confidential, and The Usual Suspects.

If you have Amazon Prime, a quick glance shows they have Detour, Pitfall, D.O.A., The Stranger, Dark Passage, and many others available. Netflix is more problematic as you have to search individually. They will let you search on film noir but the result leaves something to be desired.
