Trivia Note:

"Theme from The Apartment" by the piano duo Ferrante & Teicher reached #10 on Billboard's Hot 100 in 1960. It was written by British composer Charles Williams, but the tune's real name is "Jealous Lover" and it was written for a mostly forgotten 1949 film "The Romantic Age" (released as "Naughty Arlette" in the U.S.). Here is the Ferrante & Teicher version.

Theme from The Apartment
I have a record of “Jealous Lover” by Mantovani.

Hmm well... Singapore and Johnny Stool Pigeon are decent, Raging Tide is not very good at all. None are must-haves to me. Of course, most of the quality noirs have been released at this point. Keeping my fingers crossed for something yummy in tomorrow's set.

I guess somebody will complain these Sunday titles aren't yummy enough too.:rolleyes:
I'm not complaining, as I will buy and devour these cool BOX SET VII flicks in no time flat... although I'm beginning to worry a little bit that a certain superior 1951 MGM-controlled United Artists film noir title, named after a loose style of neckwear (and never-before-released-on-home-video), won't make the cut in these Kino deals before Amazon's looming acquisition of the MGM/UA library eventually slams the door shut permanently on future licensed physical media releases (i.e. Di$ney's wretched treatment of the Fox library).

I'm a big Fearmakers fan.... but not sure if I'm compelled to upgrade from my DVD.

But if you don't have the DVD, and like '50s Red Scare movies, I can't recommend it highly enough.

Still pining for Kino to be able to pry a certain other late-'50s cold-war extravaganza -- this one from Universal's vault (or from wherever it resides) -- for a long-overdue homevid debut....

I'd like to purchase all 7 Noir sets but is the first still available for purchase?
I don't think so as I think the licensing for some of those five titles in that first set has expired.
Yes, at least one of the titles are no longer under license to us, so we cannot re-release the first volume. We do have a little over 100 slipcases left, that we'll eventually offer to fans at a reasonable price that would cover our cost of shipping and protective packaging.
