In the dark lands of Noir, what better way to suppress guilt than with a stiff dose of booze.
Here we have Dan Duryea drowning his sorrows in Black Angel, 1946, directed by Roy William Neill.
But booze is not always the answer.
Watch Black Angel. It’s got a great performance by Peter Lorre, and one of the few times that Duryea plays against type, actually kind of a good guy.
