Movies about film-noirs and film-noir trailers - PART 2

Second part of film-noir mini series:

The best of Film Noir (1999)

Uses over 30 film clips and interviews about the tough guys and the femme fatales to illustrate the aspects of the film noir genre. Jeffrey Wells discusses The Big Sleep (1946) , Touch of Evil (1958), Kiss Me Deadly (1955), D.O.A. (1950), Out of the Past (1947), Laura (1944) and Kiss of Death (1947). Film noir is Hollywood's truly original vision of the shadowy, smoky underworld populated by beautiful dames and the regular Joes who fell for them. In films from the early 1940s to the present day, they entertain us with intrigue, conflict and lust.

Description: While fighting in Libya during World War 2 Sergeant Joe Gunn (Humphrey Bogart) and his M3 Lee tank lovingly referred to as Lulabelle are attached to the British Eighth Army. A retreat order comes through and Joe and his crew, Waco (Bruce Bennet), and Jimmy Doyle (Dan Duryea) are separated from their division and travel across the desert hoping to avoid Rommel's troops when they meet a rag tag group of British soldiers at a field hospital unaware of the retreat. In desperate need of water Joe and his added passengers head toward the site of ancient Roman ruins which holds a watering hole many miles in the distance. Along the way they rescue an Italian soldier who goes by the name Giuseppe (J. Carrol Naish) and a Sudanese soldier and are attacked by a German plane. They shoot down the plane and take the pilot prisoner and learn from him that there are thousands of German soldiers needing water who are travelling toward the well at the ruins where Gunn and his crew is heading. When Gunn arrives at the watering hole the flow of water is very slow and they work diligently to get enough for themselves. Wanting to slow down the incoming Germans from rejoining the war, Gunn sends Waco out across the desert to retrieve the American army nearby for assistance, but the question is whether the desert may prove to be too much.
