Black Man Found Hanging in Same Jail Where Sandra Bland Died
Some moments were really scary and sad, but you know I like to see the funny side where I can and there are funny bits too — believe it or not! Cancer is a very complicated disease and, as it turns out, it pays to be fully aware of exactly what it is doing to your body. But one thing I know for definite is that I am not a statistic.
Writing about it in my blog really helped me to accept what was going on and make sense of it all. Knowledge is power. And Freddie, you are so cool and so much fun, I am so annoyed I have to miss out on all the fun times ahead with you! It was you and Daddy who kept me strong throughout all of this and I will be with you always to give you the strength that you need through any tough times. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to the charity Breast Cancer Now.

Even if you can't go along with that, there can be no disputing that it is the finest film noir of all time, though it was made in , before the term film noir was even coined. Adapting James M Cain's novella about a straight-arrow insurance salesman tempted into murder by a duplicitous housewife, genre-hopping director Billy Wilder recruited Raymond Chandler as co-writer.

Chandler, said Wilder, "was a mess, but he could write a beautiful sentence". Noir's visual style, which had its roots in German expressionism, was forged here, though Wilder insisted that he was going for a "newsreel" effect. And we do. Fred MacMurray, who had specialised largely in comedy until that point, was an inspired choice to play the big dope Walter Neff, who narrates the sorry mess in flashback, and wonders: "How could I have known that murder can sometimes smell like honeysuckle?

But the ace in the hole is Barbara Stanwyck as Phyllis Dietrichson, a vision of amorality in a "honey of an anklet" and a platinum wig. And she's not just a vamp: she's a psychopath. There are few shots in cinema as bone-chilling as the closeup on Stanwyck's face as Neff dispatches Phyllis's husband in the back seat of a car. Stanwyck had been reluctant to take the role, confessing: "I was a little frightened of it.
When she plumped for the former, he shot back: "Then take the part. In the novel Badge of Evil by Whit Masterson — the source material for this movie — the hero is an American man who has been married to a Mexican woman for nine years.

It was Orson Welles who flipped the racial mix, and made the marriage brand new. Welles intended a story of three frontiers: the rancid Mexican-American border; the way a good detective becomes a bad cop; and a provocation on interracial sexuality. To be sure, it's a recognisable Charlton Heston in makeup as Mike Vargas, with Janet Leigh as Susie — but in , that bond disturbed a lot of viewers.

This is a crime picture in which coitus interruptus has to be listed with all the other charges. Metaphorically and cinematically, it's a picture about crossing over — in one sumptuous camera setup we track the characters over the border. That shot is famous, but it's no richer than the single setup in a cramped motel suite that proves how Hank Quinlan Welles himself plants dynamite on the man he intends to frame.
