movie inspiration: The Dark Corner (1946)
This is my all-time favorite film noir. My top three are The Dark Corner, Scarlet Street, and Kiss Me Deadly. Mark Stevens is a really lovable iteration of the gritty detective, and Lucille Ball is absolutely gorgeous and steals every scene she's in. She's 25 in this and had already been in 15 films. The story here too is good classic stuff - it hits all the the right notes and is a perfect example of the genre.
Love the formal teddybear hair on this lady
These needlepoint chairs are my favorite
That's Clifton Webb. If you are a big Twin Peaks fan you may recognize him as Waldo Lydecker from the film Laura. He was in tons of movies actually, and you can pretty much bet it'll be good if he's in it.
Oh and guys - this is where your waist is, in case you forgot.
