I should write a little review of Kiss Me Deadly (Robert Aldrich, 1955) but I feel too exhausted with the humidity so let me just say that this is one of the best noirs ever and you can find it on YouTube #noir #vintage #1950s #clorisleachman #ralphmeeker #blackandwhite #oldhollywood #filmnoir

Next: Kiss Me Deadly (Robert Aldrich, 1955)

Robert Aldrich would have been 100 year-old on August 9th this year. His notable works include Vera Cruz (1954), Kiss Me Deadly (1955), Attack (1956), What Ever Happened to Baby Jane? (1962), The Flight of the Phoenix (1965) and The Dirty Dozen (1967). I single out this film since it’s the only Criterion treatment his works got. It’s often cited as one of the best film noir ever made, I remember liking it fairly but not necessarily love it, so I‘m eager to take this chance for a re-evaluation.

MOVIE OFFER :
Paths Of Glory Directed by Stanley Kubrick .
Summary :
After refusing to attack an enemy position, a general accuses the soldiers of cowardice and their commanding officer must defend them...
پیشنهاد فیلم :
«راه های افتخار» نخستین اثر مهم «استنلی کوبریک» است که به طور جدی وبه شكلی بسیار زیبا به بیان تفكرات و دغدغه های خود می پردازد. این فیلم اقتباسی است از رمانی به همین نام نوشته (همفری كاب) كه كوبریك آن را در سال (۱۹۵۷) ساخت. این فیلم به علت مایه های ضدجنگ اش از فیلم های مهم ضدجنگ تاریخ سینما نیز به حساب می آید. داستان فیلم تلخ و گزنده است.

فیلم داستان سه سرباز بیگناه را روایت می کند. که به جرم بزدلی و گناه نکرده به میز محاکمه و بعد به سمت جوخه مرگ کشانده می شوند.
راه های افتخار فیلمی است در مورد انسان ها و روابط شان با یكدیگر در بستری به نام جنگ. فیلم کوبریک نشان دهنده نابودگر بودن پدیده جنگ حتی به دور از جبهه ها نبرد می باشد.
در این فیلم جنگی شما اثری از جبهه ی دشمن نمیبینید !

Kiss Me Deadly (1955). Watched this insane and wonderful film noir last night, and was inspired to make this poster of Velda & Mike Hammer this morning. It’s a very interesting Hitchcockian/Lynchian apocalyptic thriller described by critic Tim Dirks as “the most definitive, nihilistic, science-fiction film noir of all time.” See it! #kissmedeadly #robertaldrich #mickeyspillane #aibezzerides #ralphmeeker #maxinecooper #clorisleachman #gabyrodgers #albertdekker #filmnoir #1955 #blackandwhite #FilOK #movieposter #illustration

This unconventional film noir adapted from the novel by Mickey Spillane served as inspiration for one of the most revered films of the 1990's. (comment if you know which) It also happens to have one of the most unexpected endings EVER - one which will leave you speechless and blow you away (😉)...

I continue with Kubrick and watched Paths of Glory, a much superior war movie compared to Fear and Desire. Very humane, but also quite sardonic. Kirk Douglas gives a powerhouse performance in this. Some of the antiwar commentary can be laid on really thick, but this is still one of the best war movies ever conceived. That final scene is masterful and undeniably cynical.

Score: 9/10

"Honestly, you can’t even go out on the streets alone at night. Anything could happen!”
In this disturbing look at the physical and mental effects of trauma, a young woman is brutally raped and left unconscious in a Manhattan park. Attempting to put the incident behind her, she finds herself slowly unraveling and unable to function normally. A suicide attempt is thwarted by a mysterious man who takes an interest in helping her, but his true intentions are far more sinister...
A harrowing and gritty look at NYC in the early 60s, with outstanding performances from Carroll Baker and Ralph Meeker.

Showing tonight Wednesday 30 May 7.30pm: Kiss Me Deadly

In this atomic adaptation of Mickey Spillane’s novel, directed by Robert Aldrich, the good manners of the 1950s are blown to smithereens. Ralph Meeker stars as snarling private dick Mike Hammer, whose decision one dark, lonely night to pick up a hitchhiking woman sends him down some terrifying byways. Brazen and bleak, Kiss Me Deadly is a film noir masterwork as well as an essential piece of cold war paranoia, and it features as nervy an ending as has ever been seen in American cinema.

Current viewing: "Paths of Glory"(1957). Kubrick's first masterpiece? I think so! A searing indictment of military politics and a study of humanity in an inhumane situation. The film features powerhouse performances from Kirk Douglas as the idealistic Col. Dax, George Macready as the ruthless Gen. Mireau, and Ralph Meeker, Joe Turkel and Timothy Carey as the three soldiers condemned to death. One of the finest anti-war films ever made. Swipe⬅️for more!

Kiss Me Deadly
Robert Aldrich - 1955
by far the best screen outing for Mickey Spillane's anti-hero, Ralph Meeker does an excellent job as the brutal, violent and ruthlessly single-minded "hero"

The best bit of Kiss Me Deadly is the opening sequence... and any scene with Gaby Rodgers in it. I found I enjoyed the secondary characters more than the leads actually, seriously Mike is the worst, but I’m pretty picky with film noir anyways. I find most of them just don’t hold up through the years, they feel like almost parodies or caricatures of themselves. Kiss Me Deadly was hard to gage. I was surprised at how dark, sexual, and gritty this film was for a 1955 production, some of the cinematography was great, but I also giggled multiple times at how hokey some of the lines/plot played out. If you’re a fan of film noir, definitely check out this wild ride of a movie. If you’re new to the genre, go watch The Third Man instead. #shoutouttoayoungClorisLeachman #kissmedeadly #1955 #film #directedby #robertaldrich #basedon #thewritingof #mickeyspillane #starring #ralphmeeker #albertdekker #paulstewart #juanohernandez #wesleyaddy #maxinecooper #gabbyrodgers #clorisleachman #andsomanyothers #lotsofgreat #characteractors #butMikeistheworst #shoutout #to #oscarwinning #cinematographer #ernestlaszlo #filmnoir

"Listen to me, as if I were Cerebrus barking with all his heads at the gates of hell. I will tell you where to take it, but don't... don't open the box! " Saltpans Cinema would like to present the 1955 sci-fi/film noir classic, Kiss Me Deadly, which is source material for any film containing a mysterious glowing suitcase. The same film the Kefauver Comission deemed as "a film designed to ruin the virtue of young viewers." Despite earlier objections, the Library of Congress selected it in 1999 for preservation for being 'culturally, historically, and aesthetically significant.' This is the 2011 Criterion release which features a new hi-def transfer, three lengthy documentaries, and a touching video tribute by director, Alex Cox. My favorite included feature is an essay by film critic, J Hoberman (Village Voice) and a short video piece on filming locations. The latter is significant in that all the filming locations were demolished when the Los Angeles neighborhood of Bunker Hill was razed for slum clearance in the 60's. #criterioncollection #film #filmnoir #bunkerhill #losangeles #mickeyspillanes #subversive #antihero #mikehammer #50s #kissmedeadly #leftist #paranoid #noir #privateeye #ralphmeeker #hbomb #criterion

Window card for the 1953 roadway production of “Picnic” by William Inge. The photograph features Paul Newman (in his Broadway debut) along with Janice Rule. You would think from this photograph that Newman was playing the leading role of Hal, the drifter who ignited the town’s repressed sexual frustrations and runs off with Madge the town beauty. Actually, director Joshua Logan thought Newman did not have the athleticism and sexual menace the role required and cast Ralph Meeker, casting Newman as Ralph’s former high school friend turned playboy Alan. Newman was cast as Meeker’s understudy which gave him an opportunity to get to know future wife Joanne Woodward who was cast as the understudy for Madge. #picnic #broadway #broadwayplay #broadwayposters #BroadwayWindowCard #williaminge #ralphmeeker #janicerule #paulnewman #joshualogan #pulitzerprize

"Kubrick at 90" - Part III
Third installment in my year-long salute to the late, great Stanley Kubrick. Tonight's film stars Kirk Douglas as a World War One Colonel who is in a tough position when his unit doesn't follow orders on a suicidal mission. Kubrick masterfully shows the heartless side of military politics in his classic anti-war film ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

خلاصه: زمستان ۱۹۱۶ است و ارتش آلمان، درست بیرون دروازه‌های پاریس، مقابل نیروهای فرانسوی در سنگرهایشان، در گِل گیر کرده‌ است. اگرچه تلفات بالا نیست، ولی خاکی هم تسخیر نمی‌شود. در حالی‌ که فشار از سوی سیاستمدارها بالا گرفته تا به هر ترتیب، پیشرفت ‌هایی در جبهه جنگ صورت گیرد، دو ژنرال خود محور فرانسوی، برولار (آدولف منژو) و میرو (جرج مکریدی) نقشه حمله‌ای را طرح می‌ریزند که از همان ابتدا محکوم به شکست است ......... داستان فیلم با وجود آن‌ که در خط مقدم جبهه فرانسه می‌گذرد، ولی در رابطه با جنگ و استراتژی‌های جنگی نیست. کوبریک با استفاده از رمان «راه‌های افتخار» هامفری کاب سعی کرده است که طمع و سلسله‌ مراتب انسانی را در قالب یک ماموریت غیرممکن در جنگ جهانی اول نمایش بدهد. راه‌های افتخار مجموعه‌ای بزرگ از روابط و انسان‌هایی است که در طول یکی از وحشیانه‌ترین و غم‌انگیزترین برهه‌های تاریخی (جنگ جهانی اول) با دقت تمام به تصویر کشیده شده‌اند تا در نهایت به استنلی کوبریک اجازه بدهند که از ابتدای دوران کاری‌اش دید نسبتاً بدبینانه‌اش به انسانیت را برای مخاطب عرضه کند. داستان فیلم با وجود شخصیت‌های فراوان هیچ‌گاه پیچیده بنظر نمی‌رسد و کوبریک به خوبی دقت خود را در نوشتن فیلم‌نامه در خلق روابط بین این شخصیت‌ها نمایش می‌دهد و در کنار کوبریک، تیم بزرگی از بازیگران و هنرنمایی‌های به یاد ماندنی باعث می‌شوند که راه‌های افتخار تبدیل به فیلمی بشود که جنگ جهانی اول را در تاریخ سینما جاودانه می‌کند.

نمایش این فیلم، به‌ خاطر ترسیم چهره منفی از ارتش فرانسه، در این کشور ممنوع شد. در اسپانیا نیز، به ‌خاطر نگرش ضد نظامی ‌اش، از سوی ژنرال فرانسیسکو فرانکو ممنوع شد و در سال ۱۹۸۶، درحالی ‌که ۱۱ سال از مرگ فرانکو می‌گذشت، منتشر شد. در آلمان، به‌ خاطر حفظ روابط با فرانسه، به مدت دو سال از نمایش فیلم جلوگیری به عمل آمد.
