Watching “Noir Alley” On TCM

June 24, 2019

I really enjoy watching “Noir Alley,” hosted by Eddie Muller, on Turner Classic Movies.

Mr. Muller supplies great information both before and after the movie, that is shown.

There are two broadcasts, the first at the “noir appropriate” time of midnight Saturday and again at 10 A.M. on Sunday morning.

Yesterday “Shadow On The Wall” with Ann Sothern, Gigi Perreau and Nancy Davis (later Nancy Reagan, a United States First Lady), among the cast, was aired.

Ms. Perreau was 8 years old at the time of this 1950 movie and she was a truly great child actress.

In later years, I recall Barry Williams’ “Greg Brady” has a crush on his teacher played by Ms. Perreau. The heartbreak of unrequited and unrealistic love is alleviated, as “Greg” meets Wes Parker, then a Dodgers’ first baseman and a very good one by the way, playing himself as the teacher/Gigi Perreau’s boyfriend.
