just saw for the first time an amazing film noir from 1947: Out of the
Past. as i was watching it, i couldnt help but wonder if it was written
by a blacklisted author, as i couldnt connect the dark mood with what i
had imagined the post war euphoria must have been like.
turns out the film was scripted by the blacklisted author Daniel
Mainwaring. the best noir i've ever seen, though i don't really care for
the femme fatale shtick. however, i cant find anything on the web about
Mainwaring and why he was blacklisted in the first place.
