Lee and Daniel are back again for what became a loaded two hours plus episode. Keeping on with their look into film noir, neo-noir and crime films in general, they check out two closely-connected thrillers, "The Lodger" (1944) and "Hangover Square" (1945). The conversation bleeds out into discussions of the other versions of "The Lodger", Jack the Ripper in fiction, and how films in the film noir genre from different decades have influenced future productions both in and outside the genre. They also talk about the remarkable Laird Cregar and Linda Darnell, and the sad, tragic ends to their short careers. Also covered: listener comments, shout-outs from other podcasters and what they've watched as of late.
