Look, adding rum plus talking to people in chat over a movie is probably *not* the ideal way to watch this twisty, turny noir classic. It did point out that Out of the Past (1947) may have some good performances, but it's harder to keep up with because there's so much plot versus character stuff in the movie (which is easier to follow when you're not a rum or two in, and you're cracking wise in the comments).
Still, I love Out of the Past. Poor old doomed Robert Mitchum falling for the absolute worst possible girl - and you get it! She seems great! Ain't nothing wrong with Jane Greer minus the fact she seems to get off and torturing people and seeing pain inflicted. Throw in Kirk Douglas, and that's a movie with a lot of strong chin action.
Plus: not enough Rhonda Fleming, Virginia Huston, Steve Brodie, and a handful of other RKO players you'll know from around RKO.
I invite you to check the movie out yourself.
