Day #22,942

Walk km 17,835-17,847 (5096 to go): 8 parks of Burnaby/Vancouver border

Movie rewatch: The Killers (1946, Robert Siodmak)

William Conrad with one of the "Bright Boy"s

Always good to go back and watch a classic from time to time.
"Hey, Bright Boy thinks it's good to watch a classic from time to time": that opening dialogue is fantastic. I'm sure William Conrad won the Oscar for supporting actor.   

Movie #2569: Design For Living (1933, Ernst Lubitsch)

A dialogue movie (Ben Hecht via Noel Coward). The beginning and end crackle with great dialogue. The middle does lag a bit. Always fun to watch a pre-code and realize that old Hollywood wasn't always about "family values". In this one we have 3 people in love. Should all three live together? Just pick 2? Give up and each go their seperate ways?
