| Johnny Stool Pigeon - brief
Vintage cars, big fedoras, and black n white film stock do not a Noir make. Generic tale of Feds trying to take down a narcotics racket offers nothing that Noir fans haven't seen in dozens of similar, and better, films. Helmed by Dan Duryea, rather subdued in this one, and Howard Duff, sharp as a bar of soap. One the plus side, this predicts the later Nafta trade era, with locations in Canada, the States and Mexico. Also, a great deal of this is set at a Tucson dude ranch, rather than rain soaked alleys. A young Shelley Winters as good time girl trying to ease away from the game seems the most genuine character in film. Tony Curtis memorable as mute torpedo.
