07.01.06DVD Noir Night begins with Lawrence Tierney's first appearance on the screen as John Dillinger. It's an interesting movie, propelled largely by Tierney'sroughneck demeanor... I'm not sure how historically correct it is or whatever - it seems a little more on the exploitation side than that - but there are some "shocking" scenes of violence (off-screen of course, but even if you don't show it the idea of killing someone by punching him in the face with a broken beer mug seems pretty brutal) thrown here and there and it's not without it's very low budget Monogram noirish charm. Of course I can't help but watch and think about all of the later Tierney stories that would come, like him on Reservoir Dogs, him on The Simpsons, and him on Seinfeld. All of that helps this movie out for me.
