Day #21,926

Walk km 9500-9503: to the Safeway

Movie #1912: Heat Wave (1953, Ken Hughes)

This is #6 in the Hammer Noir Series. Finally, a noir. This is about as downbeat as you can get. Two bit hack writer is down on his luck and falls for the rich lady across the lake who is planning to murder her husband (with his help!).
It may not be one of the best noirs but Hughes certainly has done the best job possible to duplicate this American art form.
