The Blue Dahlia (1946), directed by George Marshall and written directly for the screen by Raymond Chandler. Chandler's novels were adapted for the screen and he adapted other writers' works, but this is the only time he wrote an original screenplay.

The other Best Film Noir out there. I have seen this one 7 or 8 times, and I still can't figure it out. They are all "dirty, rotten, scoundrels.

"Somewhere In The Night" (1946) directed by Joseph Mankiewicz. Sadly under-appreciated film noir--probably because John Hodiak's lead performance isn't very memorable. Steller supporting performances by Richard Conte and Lloyd Nolan.

Double Indemnity (1944) I love this picture. The clandestine meeting at the grocery store incognito. They both look extremely suspicious to me.
