Blu-Ray Pick of the Week: "Out of the Past" (1947)

One of the all time great film noirs is out on blu-ray today, and this one is right up there with The Big Sleep, Mildred Pierce, and Double Indemnity as a prime example of the genre from the 1940's, when it was at its peak. Robert Mitchum shows off his iconic screen persona as the PI caught up in a complicated mystery involving what else, a devious femme fatale (one of the very best, and by that I mean most evil, played by Jane Greer). It's also an early villainous role for the up and coming actor Kirk Douglas. Trust me, you should check this one out- it's truly one of the greats.
