Noir films are all the rage right now! If you love them like us and you haven’t seen 99 River Street or you just want to see it again, head on over to your local rental store or look for it online. John Payne stars as a washed-up boxer with a two-timing wife. When I was younger I had only ever seen him in Miracle on 34th Street. Evelyn Keyes, yup, she’s one Scarlett O’Hara’s younger sisters in Gone With the Wind, co-stars. Director Phil Karlson did a superb job with this gem of a thriller. His resume includes Kansas City Confidential, Scandal Sheet, two film noir offerings worth watching and in the 60’s Kid Galahad, Ride the Wild Surf and Matt Helm films The Silencers and The Wrecking Crew.
