Enter Lt. Muldoon, whose precinct gets involved in the investigation. Muldoon and his right hand man, Det. Jimmy Halleran, also find out jewelry is missing. The dead woman Jean Dexter, a fashion model, leads the police to a Dr. Stoneman, a man that loved her. At the same time, another detective discovers a cigarette case that points to another man, Frank Niles, who also appears to be involved. The drunk in the river was a jewelry thief and he, in turn, points to Harmonica Willie, a tough guy with a criminal record.

This is very frustrating. At least one quarter of the films I download seem not to have any soundtrack when I open them on Media Player. Am I neglecting to do something?

Oh wow! Interesting stuf...

Can I make a request? Could we have the Centerbury Tales if possible? Please? :)

@Anon: it's your computer mate. Try installing some codecs (like the CCCP package) or using a decent media player like KMPlayer...

Already? Wow...

Oh darn, I didn't know about Pasolini's oeuvre... I meant the 1948 one (It's not taleS, it's one tale, so my bad :( ) (

Apologies for the mistake... I'll be clicking on as many thumbs as I can to make up :D

Gryzor said...

You, sir, are god :)

I have already promoted your blog to everyone I know - and at least a few people I know do visit it regularly!

Are there any subs for it? I'll look around...

Thanks again!

Gryzor said...

Darn, the only subs I find are for a 2-CD release and for the Dimension one... :(

You can synchronize them using Subtitle Workshop, that allows to merge 2 subs into one, if subs frame per second is the same, then it should work fine

Gryzor said...

Yeah, I know. I'll try fixing it later on, and I'll up it and announce it here if I manage to get it working...

Ok! Here you go:

It's not 100% perfect, but it's darn close enough. :)
