Johnny Dark

Couldn’t sleep final evening… In any case gave up the hassle someday round 2AM and became at the TV looking for a virtual melatonin. Not anything makes me sleep higher than a Tony Curtis film, so… What’s this Johnny Darkish flick?

It would come as a marvel to a few, however I’ve by no means watched Johnny Darkish. I’ve at all times heard in regards to the flick and feature at all times supposed to make the effort, however I by no means in reality were given round to it as… like I stated, Tony Curtis simply isn’t my man.

Final evening, then again, was once the evening.

I’ll spare you from my film evaluation and simply let ya know that’s it’s in reality a beautiful excellent flick – a ways higher produced than any of the Sizzling Rod B-movies of the time. And the racing pictures? No doubt the most productive of the 1950’s? I suppose it’s the primary time racing pictures was once ever garnered from a helicopter through a studio… So, there’s that.

In case you have the time, I like to recommend you watch the entire damned factor. You’ll be able to achieve this right here:


However, in case you are drowning in vacation actions and will’t spare an hour and alter, right here’s the beef at the bone:

34:20 – “It’s within the bag.”

42:50 – “OK Primary, Imagine me briefed…” The beginning of this race is improbable as quite a few bizarre fiberglass vehicles are highlighted.

56:14 – This scene with the tach remoted at the pink sprint is good.

1:11:10 – Victress S1A. Those vehicles are beautiful… no longer in reality race vehicles, however beautiful none-the-less. And guy, Duke is type of an asshole.

1:18:00 – The climax of the film and the general race scene…


All in all, I feel I owe Tony Curtis an apology for years of loathing. Despite the fact that, he wasn’t a lot excellent at striking me to sleep final evening…
