Public domain noir classics


Hey fellow dark alley dwellers, since this place is condemned, I thought I'd just slip by and flag for newcomers here that there are a host of fantastic films noir that slipped into the public domain and so can be watched online and/or downloaded legally at archive.org
- they have a collection dedicated to noir, including detour, doa, scarlet street etc etc. I had posted a list of them on here but it dissapeared into the fog and shadows long ago. Dig around and you won't be sorry.

Here's the link:https://archive.org/details/Film_Noir


Sometimes I just need a good noir to remind me that the world isn't such a bad place.

Cheers,

Manton

We know archive.org. :) It's pretty good.

Who's 'we'?

The posters on this board.

What, all of them?

No offence, but I can't quite accept you as the entire board's spokesperson.

In case you hadn't noticed, we have very few regular posters here, you can almost count them on one hand.

I have no desire to turn this into a big discussion, the Noir board always was (and is) one of the most friendly boards on imdb, and I'd like to keep it this way until the end.

Peace out.

I'm as friendly as can be, and I'm very familiar with this board*. Not everybody who reads posts. I think taking the opportunity to let anyone passing through in on the public domain noir thing was a pretty helpful thing for me to do. Obviously you thought it was a good idea to point out to me that my post was redundant, thank you very much. Friendly? Yes it's a friendly board and this is a friendly chat... to the degree that we all have a sense of humour and are flexible adaptable self-aware people. Right?

[* Edit - WAS very familiar with this board, I should say. Not so much lately. Forgive me if there has been a slew of similar posts recently and I'm cluttering up the place with repetitious material]

Cheers, and peace.

Thank you Manton! I'm not a regular on this board so your information was news to me! I'll go check it out!

I know about it too, thanks

Indeed. Thanks, man. Although I was familiar with archice.org, still I'm an example of a board-wonderer who came here looking for something interesting of the sorts, you know, before the end.
