We attended the reception ahead of the show, which was a real kick. Lots of folks in approximations of period attire. You can see myself and J__Swift below.

I had seen Dark Passage (1947) twice before, and hadn't particularly loved it the first time, liked it much more on the second, and loved it on the big screen on this go round. The movie takes the risk of starting from the protagonist's POV, literally, and that part of the movie goes on for a bit, which is why I think I was a bit turned off the first time I watched the movie. It seemed like a stunt, but on the big screen versus the 27" TV I watched it on the first time, it really, really works.
