Mais pourquoi donc conseiller un coffret de films noirs zone 1 alors que la plupart sont disponibles en éditions françaises zone 2? Deux raisons à cela: l'état des copies pour les films RKO, meilleur que dans les dvd édités en France par les éditions Montparnasse; la présence dans ce coffret de "Gun Crazy" de Joseph H. Lewis, toujours pas trouvable en édition française. Comme la Warner a édité en France une partie de ces coffrets seulement, en mélangeant films de gangsters et films noirs, sachez qu'il existe à ce jour 5 coffrets Film Noir Classics Collection aux Etats-Unis, et me semble-t-il 3 coffrets gangsters.

Rappelons tout d'abord les films présents dans ce premier coffret de la série consacrée aux films noirs, le plus crucial de tous:
- Murder, My Sweet / Adieu ma jolie, d'Edward Dmytryk (1945)
- Out of the Past / La Griffe du passé (Pendez-moi haut et court), de Jacques Tourneur (1947)
- The Set-Up / Nous avons gagné ce soir, de Robert Wise (1949)
- Gun Crazy / Le Démon des armes, de Joseph H. Lewis (1949)
- The Asphalt Jungle /

Gun Crazy
Gun Crazy and Bonnie and Clyde are thought about in tandem and it's an unfair comparison. Gun Crazy is a much better film than Bonnie and Clyde. After he called Bonnie and Clyde "a cheap piece of slapstick comedy" the New York Times fired film critic Bosley Crowther. "Slop is slop" added New York Magazine film critic John Simon.

Gun Crazy has what is known in the trade as backstory; the ins and outs of personal history that make the actions of people plausible. Bonnie and Clyde has no backstory. It's a straight ahead shoot `em up. Gun Crazy has inventive and daring camera work: forward zooms from the back seat of a car, low angle shots of the car driver through a steering wheel, even techniques of cinema verité mixing studio footage with ambient noise; anything to keep the film from bogging down. In case your interest flags, director Joseph H. Lewis puts the criminals in a dancehall dressed to the nines in their ill gotten goods, the violinist in the band gets a full frame facial, as does the band's beautiful singer and you think, just for a moment, that this couple might get away with their crimes, escape to Mexico, and raise a pair of well behaved children. Well, dear viewer, you have been seduced and deluded - qualities no one ever attributed to Bonnie and Clyde.

A final aspect making Gun Crazy different is its leading lady Annie Starr, played convincingly by British actress Peggy Cummins. She's a creature of primal desire and unrepentant violence who kills because she likes doing it. Her contemporary might be Charlize Theron's Eileen Warnos character in Monster but The New Yorker (a publication that should know better) called Warnos "a victim" rather than a perpetrator. In sum, the reason they don't make movies like they used to is simple: they can't. Gun Crazy springs from an era that's gone, and isn't coming back.

Out of The Past
As the film title implies, the past exerts a powerful pull on Robert Mitchum, and even a new identity isn't enough to escape its lurid magnetism. The main characters are not as openly attracted to guns, but even though we sometimes don't see the violence, we see its results. Mitchum's dilemma is that attractive female liaisons reside in past and present; he can't decide which to follow and which to leave behind. As a result, he's forever hostage to the schemes of Whit Sterling (Kirk Douglas) a man who knows what he wants, but not how to get it. Male and female characters work hard to exert their will and Mitchum seems caught in the middle. Jane Greer as Kathie Moffat is just as deadly as Peggy Cummins in Gun Crazy, if not as obvious about it. She shot Whit once and escaped, he's a glutton, but not for punishment. She gives it to him anyway.

The film is less adventurous with technical wizardry than Gun Crazy but still deploys many of the staples of noir storytelling. It comes with an especially interesting commentary on film noir history by noir historian James Ursini, co author with Alain Silver of Film Noir Reader.

The Asphalt Jungle
Gun Crazy and Out Of The Past concentrate on the destinies of individuals. The Asphalt Jungle, directed by John Huston, aims to paint broad strokes and make a sweeping social commentary. Police Commissioner Hardy (John McIntire) explains bluntly, "without our effort, the jungle wins. The predatory beast emerges." Huston chooses a mosaic style, highlighting the motivations of individuals then weaving them together to present a tapestry of American life at mid-century.

This time, New York Times film critic Bosley Crowther was appalled because viewers got to "hobnob" with criminals, know their likes, dislikes, needs and desires. He resented humanizing criminals, a quality that became a bedrock principle of neo noir films like The Godfather and Goodfellas. Comparing the choices people make also helped hold the film together. Outwardly affluent lawyer Alonzo Emmerich (Louis Calhern) is so focused on his role in a jewel heist, he derives no joy from life, even with a nubile Marilyn Monroe in his lap, while the calculating Dr. Riedenschneider (Sam Jaffe), normally governed by cold logic and having stolen several lifetimes of fortune, gives it all up just to see a libidinous teenager hallapalloozing in a `50's juke joint. The film ends on a sardonic note as Dix Handley (Sterling Hayden), stricken from a gunshot wound, makes it back to what used to be his father's Kentucky horse farm, and it may be Huston's bitter conclusion that in the asphalt jungle, we'll be lucky to get more sympathy from animals than from our fellow human beings.

Murder My Sweet
Despite the number of killings and the word "murder" in its title, this film is a comedy of manners, enhanced by impressionistic film techniques that were innovative for 1945. Taken as comic relief, the film provides a well deserved let up from the intensity of Gun Crazy, Out Of The Past, and The Asphalt Jungle. Dick Powell plays Raymond Chandler private eye Christopher Marlowe, and his description of a client's home as "Buckingham Palace" then his hopscotching across the black and white tile floor of the "Palace" take the edge off suspense built up at the film's beginning. Claire Trevor, as Helen Grayle, is quite the vamp with her hair up early in the film, but when she lets it down later, she seems to predate Gilda Radner by 30 years. And that is probably the point about this film: the hairstyles of women, their hemlines and footwear, along with snappy one liners in the dialog, and episodic comedy in the form of Dick Powell striking a match on Cupid's derriere are all a greater joy than the storyline itself.

Probably the best way to watch this film is with the accompanying commentary by film historian Alain Silver (Raymond Chandler's Los Angeles Overlook Press $23.95 ) which has its own human drama: "this actor playing Lt. Randall is Donald Douglas. He played a lot of military officers and FBI agents during the war.... He's only 39 here. About a year later he died from appendicitis."

The Setup
There was a time when boxing, baseball, and college football were the most watched sports in America and at one point in The Setup, a fan watches the fight listening to a baseball game on a radio. Today boxing movies might be more popular than boxing itself. Even with the measures taken to make the ring action realistic, The Setup isn't about boxing, it's about a marriage disintegrating and it's about people pursuing their dreams even at huge expense to themselves. Robert Ryan is aging fighter Stoker Thompson struggling to control what happens in the ring, not realizing his destiny is more fully shaped by events outside it. The film is a swirl of visceral emotions in the arena, Stoker attracted to the ring, wife Julie (Audrey Totter) repulsed by it and willing to take her chances in the huckster atmosphere in town where fate and luck intermingle. Gritty and unsparing, with look back commentary by director Robert Wise. Martin Scorsese acknowledges the influence of Wise and The Setup in the making of his fight classic Raging Bull.

As for Film Noir Sets they don't get any better--- "Out of the Past" and "Asphalt Jungle" are top tier immensely enjoyable Noirs.----------------------------- After that "Gun Crazy" provides great entertainment and has some unusual touches. Its the original Bonnie and Clyde except for the fact that in the case of G.C. Peggy Cummins partner is the unwilling accomplice as opposed to Clyde Barrows leadership role in B.and C..---Its got some great scenes in it like the opening scene and the couples meet cute at the carnival.---One of my favorite Noirs--------"The set Up" is Noir about the fight game Its very good and gives the viewer a real picture of what the fight game was like back in the 40's 50's and 60's.---- Murder my sweet has Dick Powell as the Lead character playing a private dick and is very good but not in the league of the others IMO. Still it offers gritty and witty dialog. The films in this collection were also available separately so you could search them out separately if you're just looking for certain ones. I've had this collection for some time but never wrote a review 4 it before and recently purchased one for a gift. As there are many great reviews already on this site I am just giving my nod to buy it. ---I highly recommend this set and the individual Movies contained within it.--- While everyone has different tastes I would say there's not a dud in the bunch although I'm sure you will like some more than others.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Wonderful Classic Noir Collection 12 février 2012
Par Anastasia McPherson - Publié sur
Format: DVD Achat vérifié
There isn't a single misstep in this classic collection of film noir. The stand-outs are Out of the Past and Murder My Sweet, but the other films are classics as well. The transfer is clear as is the sound.

Out of the Past features Robert Mitchum, Jane Greer and Kirk Douglass and the witty dialogue, convoluted plot and femme fatale that gives noir its specific flavor. And then there is the tragic ending for the hero who tried to escape the past. This is a favorite of mine and it gets better with each viewing. Highly recommended.

Murder My Sweet is based on a Chandler novel and is stunning as well. Dick Powell searches for a stolen necklace and a lost girlfriend, not realizing that the two are connected until it is too late. Filmed in amazing experimental style and with a good girl and a bad girl to give contrast to the usual fatale stereotype. Another favorite.

The remaining three films are almost as good and feature great directors, actors and writers showing us the seamy side of war and post-war America. A definitive collection for the noir lover or for those who want to explore the genre beyond the best known classics such as The Maltese Falcon, The Big Sleep and the Thin Man. Recommended.

From Warner Home Video comes the Film Noir Classic Collection, Volume 1, featuring, in no particular order, the following films...

The Asphalt Jungle (1950), directed by John Huston and starring Sterling Hayden as a streetwise hooligan hired on as muscle for a big-time heist, caught in the middle when things go seriously sour. The picture, presented in fullscreen (1.33:1), looks very good, limited to a few, very minor flaws, and the Dolby Digital audio, available in both English and French, comes across sharp and clean. There is a so-so commentary track featuring author/film noir specialist Drew Casper with co-star James Whitmore, along with a theatrical trailer, an introduction by director John Houston (0:49), and subtitles in English, Spanish, and French.

Gun Crazy (1949) aka Deadly Is the Female, directed by Joseph H. Lewis and starring John Dall and Peggy Cummins as a pair of pistol packing newlyweds who embark on a life of crime because it's a hell of a lot easier (and exciting) than actually working for a living, that is at least until the Johnny Law makes the scene...the picture, presented in fullscreen (1.33:1), looks very good, limited to a few, very minor flaws, and the Dolby Digital audio is sharp and clean. There is a commentary track featuring author/film noir specialist Glenn Erickson, along with subtitles in English, Spanish, and French.

Murder, My Sweet (1944), directed by Edward Dmytryk and starring Dick Powell and Claire Trevor, the former playing Private Eye Philip Marlowe, caught up in a mystery involving a stolen jade necklace, a couple of hot tomatoes, and a corpse or two. The picture, presented in fullscreen (1.33:1), looks very clean and clear, and the Dolby Digital mono audio comes across clearly. As far as extras, included is a commentary track with author/film-noir specialist Alain Silver, a rough looking theatrical trailer, and subtitles in English, Spanish, and French.

Out of the Past (1947), directed by Jacques Tourneur and starring Robert Mitchum, Jane Greer, and Kirk Douglas. Mitchum plays a once private eye now fulltime schlub whose past catches up to him after getting too close to a dame he was only supposed to find for a well to do client, and ultimately ends up on the wrong end of a murder investigation. The picture, presented in fullscreen (1.33:1), is strong, and the Dolby Digital mono audio comes across well. As far as extras, included is a commentary track with author/film-noir specialist James Ursini and subtitles in English, Spanish, and French.

The Set-Up (1949), directed by Robert Wise and starring Robert Ryan as an aging boxer who gets crossed by his unscrupulous manager while going for his last, big shot. The picture, presented in fullscreen (1.33:1), comes across well with few, if any, noticeable flaws, and the Dolby Digital mono comes through cleanly. As far as extras, there's an audio commentary track featuring director Robert Wise and Martin Scorsese, along with subtitles in English, French, and Spanish.

While each film in this set is outstanding in its own right, my personal favorites are The Asphalt Jungle and Murder, My Sweet.


By the way, if you dig on these, you might want to check out the other DVD sets in the series, listed below...and the quote I used for the title of this review came from the film Murder, My Sweet.

This is a most excellent collection. Every film is well made, thought provoking, and a fascinating time travel trip to another era. I saved watching the lesser known "The Set Up" for last thinking it was just a filler to this collection. Whoa boy, was I wrong. Robert Ryan I'v always liked as an actor. But when the beginning credits were rolling by and I saw directed by Robert Wise my enthusiam perked up. Within a few minutes there was total surrender to a very well crafted intriguing story. Many characters are introduced, some in very short segments, but you feel you know them, who they are, what their purpose is. Not a shot goes by without characterization, story, sense of place, time-line, relationships being addressed. It is a spellbinding immersion. Film noir is noted for it's more realistic earthy/dark portrayal of life. It was a revolution of film artists against hollywood cotton candy dreams. The stories/approach are from the gut. Film afficionados will love this collection. Young film students will benefit from exposure to well written stories, film crafting artistry with a moderate budget, and an approach where talent does not need special effects.
