Day #21,923

Walk km 9480-9482: to the library and T&T
Walk km 9482-9485: to Denman & Davie

Movie #1909: Blackout (1954, Terence Fisher)

This is #4 in the Hammer Noir series. One again, this is not noir. It's sort of a whodunit/comedy in the first half but it loses the comedy in the second half. Dane Clark was the American import in this one and he does a fine job (I gotta admit I'd never heard of the fellow). Also good is Eleanor Summerfield as Maggie Doone.
It loses a bit of steam in the second half when it gets serious but it's still the best of this lot so far.
