3 things about George Marshall’s THE BLUE DAHLIA

The Blue Dahlia [1946]

1. Monkey music.
2. “Am I under suspicion?”
“I don’t know. How do you feel about it?”
3. The glow of the glistening street under the nightclub’s enormous neon sign.

Fantastic. Not because the convoluted plot comes together in a satisfying way (it doesn’t) but because of its atmosphere, moment to moment how things unfurl. The nastiness is riveting.
