Presumably the title of this Orson Welles-guided picture refers to working with Hollywood studios.

My reviews of RKO’s ’40s detective B-movies starring the Falcon come to a close, covering The Falcon in San Francisco, The Falcon’s Alibi, and The Falcon’s Adventure.

aka Born to Kill / Deadlier Than the Male

Superb film noir.

(This is the first film in the 2013 advent calendar from the 20th Century. In fact, it’s the first film that’s more than four years old. Oops.)

Directed by the inestimable Billy Wilder, winner of the Grand Prix at the first Cannes, winner of the Best Picture Oscar, and also Best Actor, Director, and Screenplay, it’s a wonder that The Lost Weekend isn’t better known…

That concludes my reviews from 2012.
