Day #21,707

Walk km 7547-7550: running errands

another day, another Ellie Greenwich song:

Book #379: Voices Against War (2009, Lyn Smith)

A collection of quotations (each about a paragraph long) from people who were in one way or another anti-war. It would have been much better if the whole world were included but it's almost totally people from the UK. Interesting but not very entertaining (plotwise we know what happened!)

Movie #1683: Black Angel (1946, Roy William Neill)

Not quite noir. This is advertised on the DVD box as noir but it just falls short. However, it's still a quite enjoyable crime drama from a story by Cornell Woolrich. Both Dan Duryea and Broderick Crawford are excellent in this one. June Vincent isn't much to talk about and Peter Lorre does his usual Peter Lorre turn.
